    Morning everyone!
    Happy rainy bank holiday.

    I thought I'd start this page for the folks having surgery in April.

    I'm having a gastric band fitted on the 7th April at Birmingham Spire by Mr Super. Pre op on the 1st April.

    Feeling every type of emotion I think it's possible to feel right now.

    Would love to hear from others.

    Loving this forum. A great way of sharing our journeys x x

    Hey Blossom !
    Glad you started this thread !
    I am due into the Spire in Southampton on 5th April to have a band fitted
    . Same as Blossom , my emotions are all over the place ..
    My advice ? Begin your diary , it feels so good to get it out of your head , good or bad , and down into writing where no one knows you and no one can judge you ..

    Hi Starry eyed,

    My surgery is tomorrow. Seems to have come around really quickly. Surprisingly I feel ok...might be s different story though tomorrow!!! Lol!!

    I think the emotions are normal. Having wls is a big deal. Hope you feel less anxious and if you need support there are lots of people on here to help x x x

    Which wls are you having?

    I am having a sleeve done but have been approved funding for a second op if needed later down the line. Fingers crossed it's just the one!

    Fingers crossed your surgery went well blossom here's to many losses..
