Christmas time 2007 and down 60 lbs. I finished my WLP in October 2007, the one and only class I missed was the last class of the program. The make up class was not available until January 4th, 2008. I had all kinds of test done that are required for surgery. Went to a orientation thru the surgeons office, had a physc evaluation and had to attend a support group meeting all before the surgeon would even make you an appointment.
