I will be having my surgery on 1.10.11 at Duke Raleigh Hospital (Duke Raleigh WLS) in Raleigh, NC.
My surgeon (Dr. Yoo) and his team couldn't be nicer or more helpful. If anyone in the Raleigh area is reading this and is looking for info - please comment or email me! I would be more than happy to help.
The last step I have before the surgery is the pre-op testing. I am having that done on 1.03.11.
It is interesting to read other blogs and see how different our experiences have been. My surgery will be done outpatient - no overnight stay for me! My surgeon is also considering me for the "single incision" surgery. Truthfully, I don't care what he decides - one or five - as long as I come out of the OR banded I will be happy!
