hi yes i am going with dr ammori, hes really nice , i am still waiting on confirmation of my remortgage and then i am paying a deposit and hopefully 6 aug surgicare said is free i wanted 6 july but my son is 5 on the 4th and his party on the 11th and dr ammori is on holiday for a few weeks.
Hiya Maz, have you got your funding ect already??? as at present Ime at the pre assesment level. I am sure that I have heard that Mr Ammori is either on his holls or due to go on his holls. G.M:wave_cry:
i went to my gp ,it took me 4 months to build up courage to ask and then make my husband go with me for (i am serious about this dont dismiss me affect i tend to get at the drs ) and i had been considering a band /bypass as a solution to my wait gainfor about 18 months before i went to my gp
my history is
car crash 11 years ago , severe pain which to finally manage the pain and now work for myself (after 8 years on sick) i have to be very selective with physical activites , no lifting ,no straining no vibrations ok to walk on flat but every other activity puts me in bed
decided 5 yrs 9 mths ago we wanted a baby went cold turkey with pain meds conceived first try( super fertile ) so i could cope spent most of pregnancy in bed
had a denervation procedure on my neck a few months after having matthew and it helped get me more active and less pain (Professor Richardson Chronic pain management godsend gave me a life back )
started my embroidery business from home arround the kids and pain
decided to try for sara- jayne took 2 attempts to conceive .
also i have a teenage boy who would die of shame if i was to name him
also i have overeaten but even when i diet and stick to it 100% no cheating i couldnt loose weight some days i bet i dont walk half a mile around the house while i am working
so i was desperate to
1 make sure i dont get any bigger and get out of the risk bracket for hear attack and cancer
2 loose some weight and feel better about my self
history finished back to drs
i told her i was out of control binge eating at night ok or nothing in day ,
she knows all my family illness history
she said i was 40.3 body mass thingy
but she had refered some one else bigger than me who was refused and thought it was a waist of time as she new they would say no
no ofer to send me to a dietician or a controlled physio excercise class(neck) or any thing
i was distraught i had built it up as my only answer
hubby to the rescue we are in a fixed mortgage till 30 june and up for review he said we should get the 10,000 on the mortgage if they would give it us
so here we are now waiting on my mortgage decision
back to your question on nhs referals in lancashire if other peoples drs are as unhelpfull as mine its no wonder not many are done arround here.
i just had another thought if they say no to the morgage
i can sell my husband he has taken over most of the housework after my crash so he would make a great maid ,laid back easy going and good looking any offers lady's
i might have a bypass operation to fund
Hi Sewingbelle56, Thats dreadful. But never give up girl without a fight. come on wadayasay!!!!!!!! I would go back to the G.P and what have you got to lose?? 10grand perhaps if you dont:copon:. Check out the nice guide lines along with your P.C.T for your area I am sure there will be some-one along soon to put you right. Kind regards G.M
Yep everything done, bloods, urine tests etc they are just arranging to send me for a sleep apnea test its just a matter of waiting and if possible continue to try and loose some weight until my date comes through. I have not received a letter from my PCT regarding funding but at my GP appointment last week he said it was all sorted.
Hiya Maz, well thats excellent, I realy cant see them having you hanging about for 5/6 months though. If you read these threads quite often you will see that there is hardley any for the Lancashire area. so I realy dont know if we have come to a stand still . G.M:sigh:
i looked at ashton ,leigh and wigan last night to be honest i concidered that my self , it just says nice guidelines which i believe are body mass 40 plus and 6months hospital referal.
i might go back to the gps and ask to be refered
but i find that because i am softly spoken people just ignore me husbands kids ,drs (and unless i throw a wobbler i get blankedand if i blew with any one other than family its not going to get me any ware )
Why dont you go in there, and be firm but not in a brawling tone, and discuss the options put a lead weight in your bra just to get you over into the 40 BMI catagory if you have to. because without you and others your G.P wouldnt have a job.
its easier said than done i will get all built up in my mind and close to tears , and the only way i can manage to talk with out crying is in a stern mater of fact way and people take it i am being stroppy when i am only tring to stand my ground and say the words .
and if i just cry and talk the other option they are worse and dismiss me as aloon
ive found that if i take my husband in with me at least the dr listens more and i tend to say more
dont get me wrong i am not a mouse it is if something is really important to me i just get emotional
but if my husband thinks he could save the 10 grand he will go in with me and give it a go
but hes not spending any thing we have left its mine.... not ours this time
ps i have no problem shouting at kids and husbands especially once a month
when i went to dr ammori i was over 40 body mass and i asked him if i lost weight would it go against me and he said no it would go for me when i came back to book and with my neck problems i qualify for 35 bms
Hi Gail- Michelle
I might be in beside you my bypass is booked with Mr Ammori at Spire on 7th August. He is on holiday last two weeks in July. Sewingbelle i hope you get eveything sorted and reach your goal good luck with your journey xx
Apologies sewingbelle i read the post wrong thought it was GM who was in at the same time. Just finished a 13 hour shift so knackered ha ha .Will be nice to have someone from here in the same place. Nearer the time we can describe one another so we will know who to look for. Will i wear a carnation or a rose ha ha so you can recognise me xx
