    Hi Loiuse

    You are a bit ahead of me as I only have Cons. appt on 26th Jan and hoping to get the op date then. I have done the milk diet for 4 weeks, achieved the required weight loss and am now on the 900 cal a day diet I assume until two weeks prior to operation. I am having a gastric bypass. What surgery are you having?

    Good luck to you Angeline and I hope the milk diet goes well for you. By the looks of it I will not be having surgery until well into New Year. Keep us up to date with your progress.

    Hi there. Can I ask you how long you have waited to get your date? I have been on milk diet for 4 weeks and lost 9kg and am now on 900 cal a day diet until I return to see dietitian on 26 January. I have no idea when I will see Mr Jain again or be given a date. Thanks for any insight into whats next.

After I've done milk diet I lost 12 kg been back to c dietican got reduction plan again and than got an appointment with me Jain and anestetist in post and on that appoitment on 15 December I got my surgery day. Mr Jain booked it himself in his dairy. I think u should get ur date on ur upcoming appoitment

    Mine was totally different again...... I went three months from seeing my consultant and the dietician to get my Pre op date appointment at Bristol.

    Everywhere is different as I'm pretty much the last one out of my group who started this journey with me over a year and a half ago. From Pre op date I could choose my operation date practically so I wanted to get Christmas out of the way...hence 19th January xxx

    Thank you for answering me. Wow so a long wait till you got a date I really thought I would get a date for Jan Feb but maybe I won't get it till end of next year which I will struggle with as my health is so bad. Feeling a little lost at the moment thought I'd be movie forward from now :(

    Don't feel lost hunny...every step and every appointment is a step forward xxx
    It just takes time but don't forget each of us individual and is looked at by the surgeons in that light xxx I've had to wait the longest in my group as I don't have the medical issues they had. Keep positive lovely and keep us updated xxx
