Default Scheduled for DS!!

I thought I would post as I am scheduled to have the DS in May. I am waiting till I have a break from school. I am nervous about it but have a lot of faith in my surgeon and in the healthcare system I am working with. I hope people might start posting here once again
Healthy nutrition, exercise and stress reduction are my #1 priorities

Just went through the DS surgery 8 weeks ago and feel great! Have lost 41 lbs so far and could not be happier! COngrats on choosing a date, and I think its great you are waiting for a break from school because it took me the full recovery time of around 6 weeks to start feeling pretty normal again.
