Hi everyone
I have just joined the forum after having made the decision to have a gastric bypass with Chris Pring. I now have dates to see the dietician and for the surgery and am feeling really excited with i’m sure the expected touch of nerves. I’d love to get talking with some that have recently had the same procedure and learn any tips they may have for before and after surgery and hopefully make some new friends along this journey!
Would love to hear from anyone.

Hi Boo

Welcome to our friendly forum.

I’m not recently bypassed (7 years out) so I suspect the other ‘newbies’ will be of more help than me about the immediate things.

What I can tell you is that it will change your life for the better in ways you might not even have thought of yet! For me, being able to put on my own shoes and socks and painting my toenails was such a delight that it almost made me cry lol! more importantly, it saved my life. I had a BMI of 64, a huge heart, asthma, arthritis and was totally immobile. I was existing – not living.

Streamline have given me a new and better life and I can never repay them enough. It’s not a walk in the park. Weight loss surgery requires hard work, dedication and the will to succeed. However, the rewards are immense – they will keep you going. We have people who, after wls, have gone from being indoors a lot, to going out dancing 5-6 times a week!

I know that the lovely people on this forum will leap to your aid. They are the most supportive bunch of folk you will ever encounter. That’s a promise 🙂
