    Hi Everyone,

    Not seen one created yet, so I thought I'd start a thread off for those of us having our surgeries in May, along with anyone else who can offer voices of wisdom etc. :)

    My bypass has been booked for 15th May, according to the phone call I received from Dr Ahmed's Secretary on Friday. I'm waiting for the official letter to come and I'll start celebrating.

    I was only put on the waiting list in January, so I haven't had to wait as long as I had expected. Now I'm trying to do more research around the post-op side as well as what to take to hospital with me etc. Its all very exciting.

    I'm super excited to be a part of May surgeries!! 3 weeks and one day to go, my date is 6th May :)

    I have to get through a wedding the weekend before I go. I've decided not to have any alcohol at all as I'll be doing the LSD.

    Really need to think of an excellent excuse for why I'm staying sober, don't want people to think I'm pregnant!! Any ideas guys or have you ever had to tell a little white lie to keep the surgery undercover? Xxx

    Welcome banana and good luck for the 6th. I used to be on Lighterlife without people knowing, so I always used to be the designated driver or I've just taken some ibuprofen for a pain somewhere or other. I don't like lying, but as I have back pain from an old accident, I could get away with it. xx

    Thanks lovelies!

    I had my gallbladder out about a year and a half ago, I could perhaps say something related to that :) it's one of my good friends weddings, I do feel bad that I'll be taking a step back from all of the partying but I honestly want this surgery so much that nothing will be standing in my way :) xx

    Hi,

    I'm a May opper too, same as Banana on the 6th may for a sleeve.

    Banana, which hospital are you in?

    Good luck everyone, once Easter is out of the way, it's LSD for me.

    Talking of Easter, I'm going to enjoy my last egg this weekend. Yum xx

    Hi Mrs Duck,

    I'm going to Czech Republic. :) I know someone who has already been to the same clinic so I have no concerns about it being abroad. Where will you be? Will be thinking about you!!

    I was given guidelines for 2/3 weeks LSD so will be starting my diet very shortly too :)

    A fantastic month for you. I had a 3 week cruise to the Caribbean 4 years ago and lost 2 lbs in weight. I didn't feel I missed out, was just careful. You'll have a great time, the pre-op will fly as the op will be just round the corner :0) how exciting. Hope you have a great holiday.

    Good luck Nikola, not long now. I'm getting excited. Less than a month now. I've set a countdown timer on the front screen of my phone. :0) you're 3 days after me. xx
