Hi Doodah,

I am really struggling and need to attend a support group. I’ve recently been able to get out in my wheelchair after being bedbound then housebound for 2+ yrs. I had a Gastric Bypass in August 2013 but by March 2014 I was bedbound due to a spinal injury. as you can imagine, my 7 months of good weight loss came to a halt and my weight crept back up…
I’m back in touch with Chris Pring who has carried out Barium swallow to check everything is still ok and I have also seen the Dietition again. However, I really need support from others who have had WLS. I did go to the Mile Oak group before my accident however I thought it was appalling and didn’t return! (Being held in a pub did not help anyone….people eating and drinking whatever they liked REALLY didn’t help!!) I remember one particular person showing me how a can of full fat coke was fine to drink as long as you leave it open of a while to go flat! It also astounded me that people came back from the bar with pints and multiple bags of crisps!?!

Anyhow, I see that you have a grp @ the Queen Alexandar….. I wondered if there were others closer to Brighton?

Thanks
