Hi Debbie and welcome.

I had my bypass in July 2008. I had an open bypass with a 10cm scar as Mr Somers wanted to take out my gallbladder at the same time. Even with a fairly big scar and lots of internal shifting about, I was out of hospital in 3 days! I’d say I was totally normal after 6 weeks. I’ve lost 15st and my life is totally changed for the better.

I still have health issues that are not going to go away (inc asthma and arthritis) and I have pain every day from them but I am ALIVE. Without surgery I had about 5 years max to live. That was 4 years ago so you do the maths as they say!

Looking forward to hearing all about your journey 😉
