Wow, I can't believe I'm "on the other side" as they say!! I never thought I would actually be saying that! Oh, it feels so great to be in this phase of my journey. I had surgery Feb. 11th. Looks like I'll be going home on Friday. I went from 50 to 18!! It's been rough, but no complications. I'm so happy.

Oh that feeling of post-surgery delight at having held tough and followed through with the surgery.

Congratulations asha! I wish you a great recovery. The pain and discomfort sucks, but just knowing you had the strength to undergo the surgery will fill you with pride and joy in the painful times :)

Keep us informed of your progress.

Thanks for all the good wishes. It was all of you who gave me the courage to have this life changing surgery. I look forward to moving on with my life - not thinking about the surgery every minute.

Hi, Iam so happy to hear you on the other side!
I would like to ask you who was your surgeon? I know you had you surgery at Cedars Sinai, right? how was it?

Hearing encouraging results like yours, help ease the fears of those of us who haven't made the move to schedule surgery yet. I pray your healing continues.
