    Hi,

    I'm new to the forums, I had my first Hospital appointment with Mr El Hassani at the PRUH on the 5th March 2018. He said i could have the surgery and would be getting a Gastric Bypass. He gave me a blood form and said i would need to be seen at another appointment after bloods were done.

    I was so shock that i got told yes i could have the surgery i forgot to ask questions of what is the wait time etc.

    Has anyone had the surgery recently able to give me a rough time scale on how long the wait was from start to finish (op date)

    Many Thanks

    Laura :)

I'm so excited about my journey and new chapter in my life :)
