Hi and welcome, sorry I can't help you with this, but just wanted to welcome you to the forum, hopefully someone else may be able to help you.
Welcome Honeydipdap. I am nearly a year post bypass at Luton hospital and also had a hernia which they found at surgery and fixed. I have lost 7 and a half stone and it is the best thing I have ever done. I hope you don’t have to wait too long xx
Hiya, I can’t offer any help as I was bypassed at Luton and Dunstable, I’d be interested to follow how you get on, I had a hernia and suffered with reflux too but still had a 22 month wait from first appointment to surgery. I would imagine you will be advised to have a bypass rather than a sleeve due to the reflux as a sleeve can make reflux worse and your hernia will probably be repaired during wls as most of us who had a hernia had it repaired at the same time.
Good luck I hope things move quickly for you, if not time really does go quickly and it’s a great time to research research research absolutely all you can regarding wls and change it will make to your diet/lifestyle for life xx
Welcome like the others I can’t help but would be interested in how you get on.
Thanks so much everyone.
I don’t know if I’m being selfish but the fact sometimes I can’t sit up due to the reflux, been admitted to A&E several times and given meds through drip and injection. It’s so much more than the weight loss at the moment and it just feels so unfair. I clearly understand that there are many many people worse off than me health wise who are priority but at the same time 18months is so long to be in pain and feel shame whilst looking in the mirror!
Again thanks so much for your replies. Love reading your posts.
Hi and welcome sorry I can’t help but keep posting. Will look forward to seeing your journey xx
