Default Hello all

Welcome! Being nervous is normal but, as long as your confident in your choice, the nerves are ok

Ask lots of questions... there are some pretty smart people around

Thanks for the reply. I'm nervous but I'm confiden. I know this is going to be the best thing forme and my wife. Pretty much Dr's opinion is if I don't I got maybe 10-15 years, kind of sad since I'm only 39 going on 40. But I have to many health issues this can help. I know it is just a tool, but I think it's a tool I have to have.

are you and your wife having surgery together? what made you decide on the bypass? not saying it's a bad choice at all - just that I'm always interested in why a person chooses one type over another. have you finished most of your hoop jumping? how'd it go??
