I’ve never had a problem telling people about my op and mostly everyone has been supportive.
I work as a Practice Nurse and my colleagues all knew (it is also my own GPs surgery so I was referred from there ) and they were worried what to tell the regular patients who would notice I wasn’t there so I told them to go ahead and tell them all.
I’ve had lots of very positive comments and there is now quite a list of patients who want to go on the list for WLS too ! I think a lot of them appreciate seeing a health professional who has been unable to achieve a healthy weight by the normal ‘eat less / exercise more’ methods.
I have had the occasion ‘easy way out’ remark but I make it quite clear that it is no easy option and after having a weight problem for 45 years it was hardly a spur of the moment decision.
A few patients who I hadn’t seen since before my op did voice their concerns that I might be ill having lost so much weight in a short time so I have been more than happy to put their minds at rest by telling them the real reason :gossip:
