Hi,

I am new to the forum.

I have spoken to my doctor several times about WLS. The first 1 or 2 she was not happy at all to refer me due to mortality rates in her words which of course made my husband dig his feet in about it . Finally she seems to have came round a bit and I went back to see her today after getting some information from Streamline about funding. I asked her if she could refer me and recommend me for funding. Basically she said in Fife even if someone would refer me for funding it would likely take 2-3 years..

Any advice folks?

PS I was 22 st 6 lbs and I have managed to get down to 20 st 8 lb recently. I have serious family history of Diabetes and although I do not have it confirmed I know 100% I am pre diabetic myself due to symptoms.

Thanks
Pam
