    Oh my life! What a terrible thing to happen to you Emma. Who did your op and where?

    How are things today? You will be tired because a) you have had major surgery b) a second lot of surgery and c) have been pretty poorly. No wonder you are tired you poor little thing.

    Anyway, welcome to the friendliest place around. You can be guaranteed of friendship, support and advice at all times. We don’t shy away from the negative stuff but we don’t dwell on it either – we are all about a new life and a fresh start at living. Look forward to sharing the journey with you 😉

    I had my op done at st saviours by mr basu he’s been really good. I’m not to bad today just resting trying not to over do it. Getting a bit bored of soup now but not long and I can start on purée. It’s nice to find somewhere that is friendly and helpful 🙂 x
