Hi Everyone

I am having a gastric bypass at the Clementine Churchill Hospital on the 13th January. My surgeon is Guy Slater.

I have been lurking about this site for a while and decided I really should join and share my journey. I go between excitement and nerves on an hourly basis. When excited I think about being healthier and buying smaller clothes, and in the moments of nervousness I wonder why I would put myself through this – I then look in the mirror and my question is answered. lol

Pre op diet started yesterday (high protein, no carbs, vegetables as I don’t tolerate milk very well).

best wishes to you all

Hi Loulou

Welcome to our friendly forum.

What an exciting time ahead you have! I always say that this is the most exciting part as now that you are doing the pre op diet, you are already on your journey towards a happier and healthier you! Everything else will be a bonus but they will happen.

It really is a ‘New Year, New You’ time for you isn’t it? The staff at the Clem are wonderful and Guy Slater is a superb Surgeon – you will be in the safest of hands. Wls is not easy. There will be days when you will question what you have done, however, I bet there will not be a single day that you regret it!

Not long to go now. Please keep us up to date. There are quite a few ‘newbies’ in January so you will be in good company. Us ‘old timers’ will give you insights in how to live with wls in the long term.

Can’t wait to hear all about it 😉
