    After doing the milk diet for 15 days I was cancelled. I had my wrist bands on, gown and everything, that was on 19 Nov. Rebooked for the 17th Dec 2013 and did another 12 days of the milk diet. I’m now 5 weeks on from surgery and it was all worth it!!! Hang in there X

    Oh dear I am so sorry for you, my heart goes out to you .you must feel so upset . A big hug being sent your way . It’s really tough when life throws a curve ball at you like this . The adult part of me say well it must be due to winter and staff get sick or their must be a lot of poorly people , the other part just want to shout out really loud “it’s not fair” . Keep strong it won’t belong untill it your time .

    I can only reiterate what the other lovely people here have said, Kirsti. unfortunately, the NHS is stretched to the absolute limit at the moment and emergencies take priority. That doesn’t make it any easier for you to accept though!

    Kim is right, you have every right to shout ‘it’s not fair’ – because it isn’t! I am a firm believer in fate. My surgery was turned down twice before I was accepted. In the ward when I finally had my wls, was one of the most inspiring and lovely women it has ever been my privilege to know. We have remained close friends ever since. I also went on to meet friends of another person who was in the ward. One of them is my dearest friend for life too. We are so close that she took a day off work to come along to the first South Coast support Group! We meet up regularly despite her living over 100 miles away.

    If i had gone ahead with my surgery after the first application, I never would have met all the lovely people I now consider friends. I know that probably doesn’t help how you are feeling right now but fate often deals us the hand we need – not always the one we want 😉

    Please keep in touch. You need our support more than ever now and we are more than willing to provide it <3

    Loving this new tool but I can not just rely on it alone , I have to eat healthy , take supplements every day , chew slowly ( really difficult habit to learn ) but if I don’t then up it comes and it’s not a nice feeling . Now it the exercise . I don’t want to , but I have here’d that some people after surgery like exercise ! . Last time I had thirty minute with a personal trainer on Wednesday , I got light headed twice thought I would faint and needed to rest . Apparently that normal ! I didn’t know that . This is a whole new world to me so it’s off to the gym and getting these muscle moving .

    Oh Kim, I was the same. Honestly thought I was going to puke right there on the gym floor! I could only use the hand bicycle and the recumbent bike as my heart was so massive and my blood pressure so high. Not to mention that I was over 26st! I did ten minutes at a time, then changed equipment. I repeated this over an hour. When I eventually tried to get off the plinth, my legs were like jelly and I had to hang on to the bike for dear life to stop myself from falling!

    Two things I didn’t do – give up or go mad. I just upped everything by one minute each week. I never did more than an hour of exercise in any one session. It worked! I would reward myself for not passing out or puking with a nice swim. Or just bobbing about in the jacuzzi. I didn’t give a rat’s ass what anyone thought and to be fair 99% of people were SO supportive that it was very uplifting and encouraging. Like the old saying goes: No matter how slow you are, you are still lapping everyone on the couch.

    You will learn to love and enjoy exercise but it must be done slowly and carefully. If your body is really hurting, you are not doing it any favours and it will give up. If it complains a bit, tell it to shut up and get on with it 😉
