Going to my first support group tonight in Scunthorpe. A bit nervous not good meeting new and doesn't help that the sat nav on my phone won't find the address I've been given just stops in middle of post code. Wish me luck.
That's good, all sounds positive, keep us posted xI found it, after circling the block twice lol, a nice lady waved me down and asked me if I was looking for owlss. The meeting went really well everyone was friendly and put me at ease straight away. Lots of useful but really frank information. I look forward to going again
Is only that small in the early days, I'm 5 months out and can eat a good size portion now.Went to a group dietitian appointment yesterday, discussed pre-op and post op diets. keeping food diary's, not drinking with meals, eating 3 balanced meals a day. Hard to believe that after the op i'll be full on a portion thats the size of an ice cube or 2. No wonder they make you wait so long its a lot to get your head round some times.
Aw no I’m so sorry for you and dad, I hope someone will be able to help you, maybe call your team and ask them.Well this sucks it looks like I may have move before I get surgery ( I'm not even on waiting list )to either Boston area. My father has had a stroke and needs help , I feel selfish complaining about it but I've worked so hard just to get to this point. Does anyone know if you more on teir 4 will they just swap surgeons or is it straight back to the start. And what is it like for trying to get surgery like around there ?
