    Hi Lisa
    Have just had my 1st consultation with Mr El Hasani regarding a by-pass op and was told by him to expect 12 months {or so} wait. I fully appreciate there are a lot of takers for this procedure and my only reservation is the wait as I want to move forward in my life.I live near the hospital and know the local area well.So how's it going for you now?? xx

    i think they give you the worse case scenario mark, i was told he does one bypass a week but the week before i went in he'd done 4 so perhaps there being funded for more, my wait was 8mths and trust me it does go really quick. i lived near crofton school was there for fourteen years but moved to herne bay last summer just after going on the waiting list!
    i had my op 2wks ago and am doing fine, including my pre-op diet (2wks)i have lost 2 stone so not bad in 4wks!
    mr. el hasani is a fantastic surgeon and his team and nurses were great they were very protective of me as a patient and i was in hospital a total of 7 nights for them to keep an eye on me most people are only in 2/3 nights.
    i know it's hard because once you've made your mind up to have the surgery you just want it done there and then i was the same and came away really fed up when i was told 12mths but fingers crossed it will be sooner and as i said before it really does creep up on you.

    Hi Lisa, my first day today on this forum, so hi to everyone. I'm under this surgeon lisa and due to have gastric band inserted on 21 june 2009, my surgery will be done at chelsfield park hospital only because farnborough is full. Anyway, I have 2 friends that have had the same surgeon and rate him very very highly. He's one of the top for leaving minimal scarring. If there's something specific you are worried about then ask away.

    Hi Secret Angel..I had Mr Hasani remove my gallbladder at Chelsfield Pk and can back up how good he was before and after the op....It was his long piano playing fingers which impressed me.//Gave me confidence

    Worried and confused

    Hi Lisa and Mark - my name is Rose and I have just been referred to Mr El-Hassani for WLS. He has offered me a gastric bypass. However, I was very unhappy after my consultation on Monday - it didn't start well when he never responded to my "good morning". I felt he was abrupt and very unpersonable. Is he always like this ? I came away thinking that surgery was the last thing I wanted from him... but I know I have to do something as my health is really suffering.

    I was feeling so unhappy and tearful at work today I had to leave and come home. I think I have hit rock bottom. I am worried and confused. I am terrified about the impact surgery would have not only on me, but on my husband. Would we ever be able to enjoy a meal together again ?

    I live very close to Farnborough (about 15 minutes drive) and would dearly love to be able to talk to somebody about all of this.:cry:
    Thanks :wave_cry:

    it really is great there people on here at all different stages and that have all been through the fear worry stress and joy of it all, there is always someone on hand to just air your feelings to . Everyone is freindly and none judgemental you will be fine x Its awfull when your first experience of it all is a very rude man that makes you feel uneasy its a hard process as it is , im sure thats just the way he works , but if he can give you what you want and need you will just have to be strong and just go to the appointments with your head held high, maybe picture him in the buff if it makes things easier lol:giggle:

    Mr El Hasani is just plain rude. I think he uses this to put you of and make some people distrust him and not want him to carry out the surgery on them.

    I have to admit that I was in that room in tears and after correcting him he toned down his sweeping statements.

    I recently went for my group meeting session. Where we met "Star" she seemed really nice and basically she was the good cop in the bariatric team and Mr Elhasani is the bad cop.

    I really thought that appointment was much more close to pre op then it was. However it was bittersweet. The meeting took place at orpington hospital rathern than the Princess Royal and was slightly informative.

    I suppose if you weren't well studied on the op and diets etc it was a good thing , however because of the group setting I'm sure some people left thinking they knew nothing and with a whole new set of fears.

    Apparently its a 6-12 month waiting list.... lol and we were warned that if we bothered the deparment we would be taken of the list.
