    Rich, I am new to your thread but read through every post. You are an amazing young man and I am happy to hear your first surgery was successful. Your journey, as so many have already said, is truly inspiring. For me, I have a young nephew who has a similar situation in his life and I am worried for him. Your post gives me hope that one day he can get out of his very, very sheltered life. Looking forward to hearing more updates from you as you rest and recover in the next few weeks.

    So glad the surgery went well. Hope the recovery goes well, too! Sounds like they did a lot, so it may take a little while. Take good care of yourself!

    I also struggle with hunger. I am never satisfied and always want more, even when I was in pain from eating too much. I had a large setback recently of about 50 pounds, but I'm working it back off and I'm back on track. I've had a few bad days recently as far as eating too much junk, but your story has given me the motivation to keep going, at least for today!

    Congratulations on all the progress; you're doing amazing things! :)

    New to the thread as well. Great progress, keep at it. Hang in there, I've had many setbacks along the way and "getting back on the horse" is all you can do. You can't change the past, but you control the future...and it sounds like you're on the right track. This is a very supportive community and I find reading these success stories keeps me motivated.

    Rich.... Hoping you heal quickly and don't get discouraged if this takes a while before you feel back to yourself, as before surgery. Keep in mind all that your body has gone through. Be patient with recovery and congratulations! I'm very proud of you and just want to say - You got this, Rich!!!!! Looking forward to seeing new pictures after you are healed!

    I hope you have a good recovery. Be kind to yourself, and don't worry if you're not totally happy with the results at first. Things take time to heal and the inflammation will take a while.
