    My D is waiting for her first pre op appt at the end of this month. Meanwhile eating
    a lot more particularly carbs/fats and gained a full stone. She probably is thinking that
    surgery is going to fix it all up so why not make the most of it with food now?
    What’s your experience …. anyone kept eating during pre op? Milk diet appt would help I feel but that’s along way. She is only going for her very first pre op appt in a week’s time.
    Please help with your opinion.

    Hi Zinc

    Please forgive me for being so blunt but I think your daughter needs to contact someone as soon as she can. If she looks like she is that out of control it might hinder her application for weight loss surgery. Sorry to be so ‘to the point’ but I don’t see the point of dancing round the issue with this one.

    Please let me know how she gets on. With whom is she awaiting an appointment? I’m really worried about her.

    Hi again Zinc

    How are things going? I have been thinking about you and your daughter all night.

    I’m sorry if I have upset you by being so honest about her situation but I would hate things to get off on the wrong foot for her. I feel for her so much. I bet every single one of us who have had surgery has felt that we needed a ‘last meal’ before it was done but gaining a significant amount of weight before any appointments might not go in her favour.

    I do so hope things go well and that she can see the light at the end of the tunnel. However, she has to start by helping herself and gaining even more weight is not the best way to go about it. Weight loss surgery isn’t a magic cure. It has to be worked at and will require a great deal of commitment to achieve success.

    Anyway, I’m sorry if what I’m saying seems negative but it honestly isn’t meant to be any sort of judgment or criticism. As if I have ANY right to do that!! I merely want to tell it like it is.

    Please let us know how things go and take care of you too. It’s hard work supporting someone who needs to make so many changes to their life.
