    Hi there,
    I’m completely new to all of this and I hope this is seen by someone?!? Lol

    I am booked in to have my band fitted on 5th October at Nuffield in Guildford with Chris Pring. I’m on day tw of the milk diet and so far finding it OK! I’m not hungry 🙂

    I am however hugely nervous at the moment and any support would be great!



    Hi Sharlotte and welcome.

    Oh my life, you must be so excited! 5 October is next week!

    Please try not to be nervous. Chris Pring is an excellent surgeon and a very nice man. You could not be in safer hands.

    My dearest friend had her band fitted on the same day as I had my bypass four years ago. We were in adjacent beds. She went on to lose 11 STONE (gasp) and her life has changed almost beyond recognition (as has she.) It warms my heart every time I see her, which is quite regularly, as she is so full of life. She is in her mid sixties but runs around like a woman half her age, Wish I had her energy lol!

    She went home the next morning and I stayed in for a few more days as I had an ope bypass and my gall bladder removed. Neither of us have looked back. I went on to lose 15st instead of my life. I work now and just went on my first long haul flight this summer.

    So, please don’t be nervous. Be excited instead. Your life is about to change for the better, forever. It’s hard work but it is SO worth it. You will find nothing but support and friendship on here so come and visit anytime you like. Here are some useful links for you to follow to help you on your amazing journey to a happier and healthier future 🙂
