Hi Papike,
I know at the end of your post you were confused over whether to choose another doctor or not... have you meet with Dr Holland? Not for anything but experience in weight loss surgery is very important he did my revision from lap band to rny almost 3 weeks ago and I am doing amazing. I can't say enough about him. I just think its good with any surgery to have a second opinion. Check out his stats on obesityhelp.com and maybe meet with him.
Take Care and best wishes

met with Dr. Russo yesterday for second visit and feel very comfortable with my choice starting to get the ball rolling now with other appointments required but no date for the surgery yet, but i'm sure it will be sometime in the next six months Smile
