    Congratulations on getting through the pre-op and having your date and time of surgery. Good luck with it all. When do you start the liver shrinking diet?

    So pleased it all went well, excellent that they have even given you a operation time, I didn’t do any group meetings at my pre-op but I believe a group came out together before I went in. Good luck Sandra, how long has your been start to finish Sandra? Xxx

    No I didn’t have to, did they say why? It was a long day though 3 hour journey then moving from department to department followed by 3 hour journey home!! But so worth it in the long run, How long does it take you from Milton Keynes? Xx

    Heya, bet you're excited now. Hopefully more than enough time for your ear to clear. We're having our ops within a week of each other by the looks of it! Will be sending you out all the positive vibes possible!

    Sounds good to me! I'm sure we'll go through a lot of it all at a similar rate which will be kinda cool and definitely interesting! Did you end up sticking with the sleeve? That's what I've opted for. Mines on the 2nd of may so two weeks today. Luton's not my neck of the woods though. Having mine done in Cornwall.

    Thanks, spent the morning in the sun. Had started to forget what it looked like! Had never heard of retinopathy before but googled it through curiosity. Everything I read suggests that wls is good at tackling it and aleviating a lot of the other issues surrounding diabetes. So sounds like you're killing two birds with one stone! Even more reason to be excited. Can't wait to here how it goes.
