    It depends on your BMI and if you have any co-morbidity’s and unfortunately losing your 5% doesn’t speed things up but you must keep the 5% off for the whole assessment period (6/12 months)
    Good luck look forward to your updates xxx

    So I saw the Dietitian yesterday, she was so lovely and understanding. There was no mention of doing tier 3?!! She recommended I go see the doctor to get some help with my Anxity as surgery can make anxiety worse so she wants it’s managed before we can move forward. She then explained she’d write with a follow up appointment for 3 months time where she’ll then discharge me and put me forward for the group information session at Orpington. Once I’ve attended that meeting I’ll get referred back to the Surgeon who’ll then put me on the list. So now I just wait for my next appointment ☺️

    Nope nothing, I’m already trying to diet so maybe that’s why she didn’t mention it? But she said I shouldn’t worry to much if I don’t lose. She was so lovely. You’ll have to let me know how you get on xx

    She was really lovely, but said it could take up to 2 years ... I’m praying it’s sooner... I have received my next appointment to see her on the 21st February & an appointment to see DR Neff at Kings on the 8th Feb x

    To be honest I’m not sure what tier 3 is or where I actually am on the scale of things... looking at my letters, one is for Orpington Hospital and one is at kings... I only received my letter for dr Neff yesterday, so could be that yours is in post x

    Tier 3 is a diet, no diet was mentioned to me?
    I’ve got my follow up appointment for Orpington on the 7th Feb and I’ve received a copy of all the notes and blood results and still nothing was mentioned? But when I saw her I had given her a lists of dates and diets I’ve tried in the last 5 years so maybe that’s why?? No
    Idea ‍♀️ X

    The dietician refers for tier 3 at either Kings or Kent. No idea why I’ve not been referred but I’m hoping that’s a good thing as it makes my wait list shorter?? Roll on Feb for my next appointment x

    Kings list is at least 3 years, that’s coming from someone who was internally referred by a senior registrar.
