Does anyone know when the new series of THE FAT DOCTOR is coming or if there is going to be one? I have watched the old ones so many times I feel like the patients are my friends lol

CC same here loveee I know I know how to perform a Gastric By-pass now, how about you???
Would love to see the people who were on there and how they are doing nowMarch 4, 2010 at 6:36 pm #34731carolthecookMember
I could certainly assist with any gastric bypass op too! Like you Ms Ellie I would love to see an update on how everyone is doing and coping with their new lives. The journey only starts with the surgery … it would be great to see more about the after effects and how people cope.March 4, 2010 at 8:15 pm #34756Cheeky ChickenMember
Hi, It would be great to have a HOW ARE THEY NOW program. I have my friends and family hooked on the fat doctor now too:)
I loved the three sisters, they egged each other on:)
My friend had a bypass 6 months ago and has just been told by her hospital (Charing Cross) That she shouldn’t expect to lose any more weight!!!!! This week she lost another 4 pounds. She has gone from just over 20 stone to 13.13.

My girlfriend, who by coincidence, had her bypass at the same time as the 3 sisters you mentioned, has lost 91/2 stone in the last year. She is still losing too! She is down from a size 30/32 dress size to a 12! She has also heard that one of the sisters is now pregnant after trying for such a long time which is wonderful news.
Let’s hope the FAT DOCTOR team hear our requests for another series and perhaps with a different slant this time.March 5, 2010 at 8:56 am #34728SpikeyjayceeMember
Hi all. I think a new series is/has been made cos I heard that the cameras were at St Richards a day or so before I went in for my bypass on 4 Feb. Now if they had waited a few days they could have seen me and the girlies forming our own singing group – The Baritarics – that would have made great television!!!May 4, 2010 at 4:44 pm #34767Mr ChrisMember

You have to go into edit profile and then where it says browse ( I think) if you have a photo saved in a file , you just click on that file and it should upload.
