    Is there a difference?
    Just watched a programme where a woman had her stomach stapled, but was still massively overweight?
    Bit confused now

    I thought that was the old fashioned stomach stapling which just decreased the size of your stomach and the bypass had now taken over from that but I have not idea.

    If anyone else does then please let us know.

    Hi

    I watched that programm, Fat Surgeons, the poor lady in question had to have that op as, due to her large hernia the bypass would have been extremely problematic for Chris Pring to perform and I imagine, once she’s had the hernia repaired, which Mr P is also doing her weight loss will be much more noticable.

    We all lose weight differently some fast, some not so unfortunately this lady had other issues which were slowing her down but, like the rest of us she’ll get there.

    Hope this has unconfused you penny, how are you doing on your appeal for funding?

    Lots of love

    HI Penny

    I know your probably fed up with hearing this but, give it some serious thought about appealing the decision, we’ve all been where you are now and know the feeling of helplessness that goes hand in hand with weight gain, hang in there penny we’re all with you no matter what you decide.

    Take care
    Lots of love
