Hello everyone!

This is your super last minute reminder of the next Southampton WLSinfo Support group meeting which is this Saturday, 18th April 2015, at Postern Court from 10.30am – 1pm. Everyone from all aspects of bariatric weight loss surgery is welcome even those who have had surgery, not for weight loss, but for other medical reasons! We welcome pre and post oppers to our group and are a friendly bunch! Also welcome are support friends or partners and even young children, providing you don’t mind them hearing stories of surgery or toilet habits! My husband and son should be with us as always!
I hope you have all had a good month! The kidney stone debacle continues with me – at least 4 stones in the right kidney of a fair size needing surgery at the end of the summer. A small stone in the left kidney, which is new and causing lots of discomfort in the last week – now trialling stronger pain killers. That one will have some ultrasound blasting but is not so likely to be gotten rid of as it is lower than the exit of the kidney and stones don’t usually like to work against gravity to pass through unfortunately. If it doesn’t work, then the right kidney has to be seen to first. Before all that, though, should be a kidney function test, because the right kidney is damaged and if it is functioning at less than 20%, my consultant will remove the kidney as there will be no point to removing the stones. He thinks it should be working at a greater per cent but it is definitely damaged due to the stones being there for many years and he cannot be sure. Wow what a long rant, sorry! I need you all to know in case meetings get postponed or cancelled, sorry!
At least the recent weather has been amazing and I’m really looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday!

Take care,

Hi Ele

Firstly, thank you so much for always supporting our wls community, even when you are not feeling so good. You are a real trouper – what would we do without you?!

I have kidney stones again myself so you have my utmost sympathy and hope for a resolution asap. please don’t forget that this forum is a place for people to rant about things whenever they feel the need so, if you need to offload at any time, please come here: you are amongst friends who know exactly what you are going through.

Thanks again Ele and I hope you have a super group, as always.
