I HAD KNOWN ABOUT THE CENTER FOR THREE YEARS. I WORK IN A HOSPITAL AND THREE PEOPLE THAT I KNEW HAD IT DONE AND THEY HAD GREAT SUCESS WITH THE CENTER. THEN I HURT MY BACK, THE DR. TOLD ME I HAD TO LOSE WEIGHT IN ORDER TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL SURGERY ON MY BACK. I CALLED AND STARTED THE FORMS THEN I WAS TOLD I AM GOOD TO HAVE THE SURGERY. THEN I PICKED A DATE AND SET UP TRAVEL PLANS. THEY TOLD ME WHERE TO GO AND WHO WOULD PICK ME UP. THEY EVEN TOLD ME THE TIME AND THINGS YOU DO AS SOON AS YOU GET OFF THE PLANE. THERE WAS NO SURPRISES, I LIKED THAT. IN THE VAN RIDE YOU MAKE FRIENDS WITH THE POEPLE THAT ARE GOING TO HAVE THE SURGERY WITH. SOME HAVE A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER WITH THEM, I DID NOT, I WAS BY MYSELF. THE HOSPITAL WAS GREAT, THE STAFF ARE THERE, JUST FOR YOU, THEY KNOW YOUR NAME AND HELP YOU ALL THE WAY. THE SURGERY WAS OVER IN A BLINK, THEN YOU REST A LITTLE BIT. YOU START IMMEDIATLY. THE WALKING IS THE KEY TO GET RID OF EXCESSIVE BUILD UP OF AIR. EVERY THING YOU NEED IS PROVIDED BY THE HOSPITAL. YOU STAY FOR TWO DAYS, THEN YOU GO TO A VERY NICE HOTEL. THEY ALSO DO EVERTHING FOR YOU AND HAVE NURSES AND A DOCTOR AT THE HOTEL. YOUR FRIENDS HELP BY TELLING EACH OTHER THINGS THAT WORKED FOR THEM, YOU TELL WHAT HELPS YOU. WE HAD A GREAT TIME THE LAST DAY, WENT SHOPPING WALKED ALL OVER TOWN. ALL THIS IS TO HAVE SURGERY, IT WAS SO COMFORTABLE THAT REALITY DOESN'T SET IN UNTIL THE MORNING YOU ARE TO LEAVE. I DID NOT FEEL LIKE I HAD SURGERY I HAD SO MUCH FUN BEING WITH PEOPLE JUST LIKE ME. A NEW PLACE TO SEE AND NEW FRIENDS TO DO IT WITH. THEN WE SAID GOODBYE, THE PLANE RIDE HOME WAS HARD FOR ME. I WAS OK GO THERE ALONE BUT I DID NOT THINK AHEAD TO THE RIDE HOME, THIS SAID I WISH I HAD A FRIEND WITH ME GOING HOME. I WOULD DO THIS AGAIN BUT SOONER IN TIME. I HAVE 4 GRANDBABIES, I HAVE BAD KNEES, WALKING HURT NOW IT DOESN'T, MY BACK IS GOOD MOST DAYS SO I AM NOT HAVING SURGERY ANY TIME SOON FOR THAT. I HAVE HELP AT HOME BY CALLING THE HELP LINE. YOU ARE NOT ALONE ON THIS JOURNEY, AND IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. WITH GODS HELP TO MAKE IT SO I COULD GO AND HAVE THIS DONE. WITH THE BEST PEOPLE TO DO THE SURGERY, THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING, AND I AM DOING GREAT.
.JUST A NOTE: SUNSHINE AND TRACY ARE TWO NURSES THAT WAS WITH ME THAT WEEK, BUT EVERYONE THAT TOOK CARE OF ME WAS GREAT, DRIVERS, HOTEL STAFF, HOSPITAL STAFF, THE BEST.
