So had prevop assessment today and all went very well. The staff at Luton Hospital have all been amazing. All set for gastric bypass on 19 September
Hi from a very hot Mauritius ☀Have been getting withdrawal symptoms so just had to check in, so pleased for you lovely the countdown is on..... kind thanks to Hotel Rui for putting weighing scales in our room On day 5 I'd put on 2kg !!! Part of me thinks oh well it's the last holiday when I can the other part does not want to undo half of my hard work so far, no prizes for guessing which part of me is winning at the moment. Take care lovely Xxxx

Lovely to hear from you, ignore the scales until you come home. It feels very strange to be on the milk diet again from tomorrow and big countdown starting xxxxx

Hi @Maria61

Glad your feeling a bit better . The LSD does get easier, I struggled the first 2 days of it. But, by day 4 to 5 was feeling much better .
No one said this journey was going to be easy. We just have to get through it best we can.
We'll have to ride the storm for a while ( months probably)
It's a big change from our old way of eating.
......But, keep remembering after a storm comes a lovely rainbow to look forwards to.
Keep going hun....you can do this!

Did they say how long you have to wait for a new date sunshine? You can call the PALS office at the hospital to ask as there are guidelines for this. My surgery due on 19 September is also onNHS so this could happen to me. Good luck xx

I should get offered another date within 39 days. That's what my consultant told me today anyhow, when he rang me.
So not too long really.
You not got long!
I think you'll be in before me though.
The good news though, ... my consultant said I only have to do 1 week on the LSD this time....not the two weeks. :)

At least that is something sunshine. I hope you get a date very soon and I am so sorry you were cancelled. It must be so hard to get psyched up for this surgery and for this to happen. I am sure we will both be so happy when we get it done xx
