I also know how you both feel.

I have come back in floods of tears from seeing my doctor tonight after asking about funding for a bypass. She told me there was no point applying to the PCT as my BMI is not above 60 and I do not have anything like Diabetis, Heart problems etc. My BMI is 46 and I am finding walking up stairs and general getting around very difficult, my legs, hips and back get very painful. I didn’t realise that her saying what she did would get to me so much. I am at my wits end.

I don’t expect it as a right to get this paid on the NHS as I can afford to pay about £300 per month but I do not have enough money up front and to save it would take me a good couple of years and I cannot wait that long. I don’t have relatives I can ask and unfortunately as my husband was made redundant a few years back it affected our finances for a while until we were able to sort it out but it affected our credit rating.
