    Hi All

    Well her I am, three days post op and excited about the rest of my life, yes I’m a little apprehensive, I’ve got a whole new lifestyle to adopt, food wise that is, a very supportive hubby and lots of will power.

    Everyone in St Richards was fantastic, Chris Pring was lovely, the anthestetist, (can’t spell it) wasn’t bad either, for all of you going in say hi to Andrea, Tracey, Michell and Veronica and all the other staff on the bay, they are fantastic and couldn’t be more help, sympathic or supportive, thanks to those lovely people the transition is made a lot easier.

    Elaine, I hope you are less windy and that you slept last night!!!!

    Sonia, if you’ve just loged on good luck

    Take care and I’ll let you all know how I get on.

    Take care and thanks to all you guys for all your help, support, encouragement and advice over the last seven months, you guys have been my rock.

    I’m on the losers bench, yippee!!!!!!!! :flypig:

    Lots of love to you all

    well, as i work at St Richards and see Shaw, Guy and Chris around the place, virtually everyday. I just see them as Guy, Shaw and Chris doing a job.even though they do a brilliant job. I see them as human beings first.

    Guy done my operation for me. Quite scary that he’s seen what i look like inside.

    Hi Lesley,
    Welcome to the losers bench.
    Sorry I missed you at the hospital, got there about 20 mins after you left. Elaine was looking good.
    Take it easy.

    They are BRILLIANT at their jobs. They have helped many thousands of people get their lives back. But you can say that about ALL doctors and nurses. It felt strange for me being cared fore by people I see alot of my time.

    A bit like you seeing someone at work and telling them you medicial history and them doing your operation. Even though they cannot breach confidentuality etc.

    They help people get their lives back. Just like the Cardiologist/Physio/Stroke doctors.

    When you work in the NHS/hospital enviroment you see them around the hospital. You see them ‘turn on’ the charm for the patients and then ‘turn off’ the charm afterwards.

    Hi All

    Well, it’s done, my first visit to Chichester post op, very pleased with the results, I’ve lost 2 and a half stone since my assessment day on 28th January, I am sooooo pleased with myself that I wanted to share it with you all, as you’ve all helped me so much over the past few months.

    I had my first family event at the weekend and, even better than dealing with that successfully, I got a dress on that I bought 5 years ago and, although it fitted me at the time it hasn’t since and, on Saturday it just slipped on and, although I say so myself I looks good and felt even better when every one said how good I looked, ( a bit of blowing my own trumpet there but hey a girls got to do what a girls got to do!!!!) :dance:

    Speak to you all again soon, take care and to all those who are waiting to go to their first 6 weeker, don’t worry, it’s a doddle.

    Lots of love

    Lesley

    Hi JennyLeanne and Batesy

    Thanks for your lovely comments, it is nice to get compliments, all the more so because nobody else seems to have noticed but, as my daughter says ‘it’s subtle mum, don’t worry’, she’s such a wise girl, don’t know where I got her from… just got lucky I guess!!!!

    Anyway, thanks again.

    Take care
    Love
    Lesley
