    Not sure what to do. My appointment came through this morning. I have an appointment with the specialist nurse. (which is fine) but nothing about a dietician. i haven’t seen a dietician since my first assessment on the 19th March. I don’t want to complain cos I have nothing to complain about but I feel as if I’m not getting the right support. I know I can phone them but face to face advise is better. I feel as if I am just guessing on food amounts and what to eat at the moment. I also thought I would see a consultant on my 6 week appointment too.

    I am not complaining just feel a bit confused although I feel fantastic. The nurses are as good or better than anyone else.

    Love Pinks

    Hi Pinks,

    After surgery, you see the specialist nurse at 6 weeks, and after that the dietician at 3 months, 6 months etc. Unless you have a surgical problem, you will not see the consultant again (unless you are a private patient, who see the consultant once post op). Phone them if you need help. Good luck.

    Hope that helps.

    6 weeks ? Really….

    Blimey doesnt time fly……

    Dietry support is a little bit of a failing and something that was discussed during one of the FOCUS groups.
    Most of us have little understanding of what best to eat or we wouldnt have got into the state of where we were up to surgery…

    Making sence of what protien is hard enough without worryig how much of this and that… It is an area that needs a bit more support. I just wish their was something written down to encourage us, but were all so very very different.. It might confuse us more than we are allready….

    Telephone chats are ok, but as you say so much more is taken in face to face…

    Why not call and see if you cant make an appointment with one of the dieticians if thats not what your review is all about… I am sure if you ask nicely a dieticain will be happy to sit you down and have a natter….

    Dont ask dont get Sarah……. wink wink…

    Otherwise well done…..
