Thank you so much Ruby.

It dawned on me yesterday how different this will be from my bypass. I was actually worried at one point that I might not make it when I was walking down that corridor to the operating theatre. I had written my will and left instructions about my funeral.

This time is SO different. I don’t drink, smoke or have high blood pressure and I’m not super-morbidly obese. I didn’t drink or smoke before but the other two factors, combined with bad asthma made for a very worrying time indeed. Now, although I still have asthma, arthritis and a few other problems, I’m in no more danger for a four hour operation than anyone else.

Wls has not just given me back my life – it has given me a better one.It’s also one that I can keep improving. I’m so, so grateful to Shaw Somers and all my friends and family for helping me to finally be healthier and happier after almost 25 years.
