Hello Doodah,

Thank you very much for replying to my post, its so nice to know someone thats been through all this and also suffers Fibro, I certainly take my hat off to you for losing 15st thats out of this world :clap2:

Did it make your Fibo worse after surgery?

I attended a bariactric seminar last week with a Dr Carr (feeling Good) but your right I defintely need to have a consultation with one of the surgeons. Im not sure if I want to go the surgery route or not yet, I am still trying to get my head round it. I absolutely detest the way my body looks and feels right now, but to live the rest of my life never having any sugary foods (I occasionally get a chocolate craving!) and to live without diet coke feels me with dread – being honest. I have got to get to grips with this and find replacements. I dont do a lot of emotional eating, but when things really get me down I can then turn to sugary foods to give me a lift and another 2 st lol. Im very much aware that surgery wont cure emotional thoughts and feelings and in the past replacements would have been long walks in the country or horse riding, but I can do neither now thanks to fibro, sometimes I feel all I have for comfort is food.

So glad I found this forum, everyone cerayinly seems very helpful and supportive from all the posts Ive read.
