    Oh no, that sucks. At least it's not a massive delay but still annoying.

    Hi @Mollypop,

    Thank you for message, finding it all overwhelming tbh, had my first weigh in Wednesday, not as much as o would have wanted, only 5lb, but I have dropped two dress size on top.

    Also struggling at deciding which operation to choose, can I ask what you decided on and why?
