Hi Doodah, thanks for your reply and advice, I have had so many tests I’ve literally lost track from brain scans to so much blood work I,m surprised I have any left lol I am currently trying a low crab/clean food diet, cutting out all processed, prepackaged food and slowly I am starting to feel better but its early days and very difficult, making note of any food reactions, its almost like going back to the beginning again but I will certain go back to the gp if it doesn’t improve. what makes it harder is the fact that we only moved up to Runcorn just over a year ago and there doesn’t seem to be the post barbaric knowledge that I had access to in Kent, oh well I will keep going, I am trying to find a support group up here so if you or anyone on the forum know of one near Liverpool or Runcorn area I would love to hear from them.

Again thanks for the advice Doodah its good to be back and know your there.

Lots of love

Hi again Lesley.

How frustrating that the bariatric knowledge seems to be underwhelming up there. It’s a beautiful part of the country but I do think that the South Coast and London are exceptionally knowledgable.

Going back to basics is no bad thing actually. I do it a couple of times a year just to see what my bypass is still capable of. It’s prompted by the fear that it might not ‘work’ anymore but it always does.

I’m really glad you have come here to ask for support. Things never seem quite as bad when you can share problems. I will ask around for you about a support group Runcorn way. They are invaluable. Don’t suffer in silence my lovely. See your GP if you have to and perhaps even think about bringing her/him up to speed on all things bariatric!

In the meantime, many of our support group members go to either Slimming World or Weight Watchers for support. Here is a list of the groups in your area:

They are now very open to accepting people who have had wls. Hope this is helpful 🙂
