More Appointments

13 Jul

I’ve had a few more appointments at the hospital.

Went to see the anesthetist, everything went well, he seemed more concerned about sleep apnea and explaining about that and how it affects everything, so I’m still waiting on that test, which is very frustrating as I’ve phoned my hospital and they have not had the referral as of yet.

He told me how they blow up your tummy like a beach ball (I guess thats where the gas pain comes from!) so they have access to everything they need. I don’t like the sound of this. Every few months I get ill from wind trapped, its so painful it wakes me up and night and there is nothing I can do to make the pain stop. It’s a horrible pain!

As I said with my last post, he said yes there isnt anything wrong that he can see to stop me getting the surgery.

Last Tuesday I had to go see Professor Stephens, he was the non surgical consultant or something like that and also specialises in diabetes.

He checked me over for Cushing’s Syndrome, which I don’t have. He also said to cut my food down by 1/3 as its going to be a huge change in what I’m eating and to start reducing it now. Easy if I was eating a lot, I’m still eating bad stuff and not real food :/ I had put on half a kilo, I was expecting more, but would have been better if it was coming off! I will come off my Metformin and Bydureon before surgery and he will come and check sugars and other medication after the op.

So now I’m waiting for the appointment back to the consultant. They are really pushing me for the sleeve, saying they are having alot of good results with it and obviously it’s safer, which is good in my world :p

Also waiting for the other test, which is annoying me.

Looking at surgery in October possibly, I shall know more soon!
