oprah mail

DEAR FRIENDS,
SINCE THE MAY SHOW OF MY OPRAH APPEARANCE WAS REBROADCAST ON AUGUST TENTH I HAVE GOTTEN SO MUCH E MAIL. I AM GETTING READY TO GO IN FOR YET ANOTHER SURGERY NEXT WEEK AND IT HAS KEPT ME FROM BEING ABLE TO GET TO ALL THE MAIL. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH ME I WILL GET TO ALL YOUR LETTERS AND QUESTIONS WHEN I AM OUT OF SURGERY AS I WILL HAVE SOME DOWN TIME. YOUR LETTERS OF ENCOURAGEMENT MEAN SO MUCH TO ME AND I THANK YOU SO MUCH. THIS TIME I AM NOT GOING IN FOR RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY. I HAVE A BIG CALCIUM KIDNEY STONE WHICH HAS BEEN CAUSING ME A LOT OF PAIN FOR TWO YEARS. I AM THANKFUL TO FINALLY HAVE IT REMOVED AND I AM GREATFUL THAT SINCE I AM NO LONGER MORBIDLEY OBESE I DO NOT HAVE TO BE CUT OPEN, I CAN HAVE LAPROSOPIC SURGERY ! YAY! THIS ALONE WAS A REASON TO LOSE WEIGHT. WHEN YOU ARE MORBIDLEY OBESE AND YOU NEED ANY KIND OF SURGERY EVERYTHING FROM GETTING ON A GURNEY TO FITTING ON A HOSPITAL BED IS ALL MORE DIFFICULT. LETS ALL KEEP GOING SO LIFE CAN BE EASIER!!

Stacey, my daughter, who is a surgeon, confirms what you wrote about the risks of surgery for the morbidly obese. Every step along the way is more complicated, and often riskier, for the obese patient. I'm glad you no longer need to have those concerns for yourself.

My Name Is Vince Griffin I Saw Your Movie Bruno The First Time The Other Day. It Made Very Sad The Way They Treated Your Character, It Broke My Hart. I Know It's Just A Movie But If That Was Really Happening & I Was There I Wouldn't Stand For It. People Are Human Being's & Should Never Be Treated That Way. God Bless.
