Counting Down to Next!

29 May

Meeting went very well.

I was a bit disappointed at first, but I think I’m okay with the decision now.

Left the house at 07:30 for an appointment at 09:30! We got there a bit early, but we didn’t know how traffic would be in Swansea.

Got measured before the meeting, weight and height. Then got called in, the consultant was very nice and Nia the nurse was there again. She’s lovely!

Was asked a few questions like how did I get there etc, what did I eat, which he was quite pleased about when I told him all the bad things I would eat.. he said he liked to hear that as it’s truthful and thats what they need, they can’t have people lying to them and not understanding why they got to where they are today.

He asked me what surgery I wanted and I said bypass to which he said no :( :( my bmi is too high at 65!

He thought about a balloon first but because I’ve been losing weight he didn’t want to do it.

So looks like it’s the sleeve for me, with a possible revision in the future. I was a bit upset to begin with, I just wanted the best option now and do it once and it be over with. But of course I don’t want to die either! They said the figures coming from America right now are showing the sleeve being as good as the bypass for diabetes and it going quite quick after surgery.

I hope that happens for me, I really don’t want to have this the rest of my life!

So all this time I’ve been preparing for the bypass and now I’m probably not going to get it! Typical isnt it lol

So in six to eight weeks I should get the next appointment, which I should see all the rest of the members of the team on the same day.

The only thing that can hold me up now is an appointment for sleep apnea, I guess they have to check I don’t have it, I don’t think I do though.


So roll on eight weeks and it should be soon after that!
