    Kim, I so wanted to hug the living daylights out of you last night. You looked scared. I HATE that. I hate the fact that you are not quite out of the woods yet and I hate the fact that there is nothing I can do to make things better for you.

    I want you to know that you can call me anytime. I can’t help but I can listen. You and I have been on very similar journeys post wls, and our goals of good health can seem miles away. Please lean on us.

    There is a fine line between letting people know you care about them and looking as if you are nagging. I fear I am stepping over the nagging line here but Vickster, if you are reading this, I’d like to know that you are ok. If you want a break from us, then simply ignore this post. You will never be made to feel obliged 🙂

    Hello,
    Just to let you up to date with the Vickster, she is struggling at the moment with keeping food and drink down, she did manage a bit yesterday but I have asked/told her to phone Chichester as I don’t want her getting dehydrated. I will text her in a minute to see if today has been better. Hope you are well, haven’t posted on here for awhile as hubby’s Dad is struggling with terminal cancer, falling and is now in hospital with a bad infection and high calcium levels, such a lovely chap, not fair

    Hi Lelly, thanks for the update on Vickster. The poor lamb, hope she is feeling much better soon. She really should get in touch with her team. As you so rightly say, dehydration is best treated quickly.

    I’m so very sorry to hear about your Father in Law’s struggle with cancer. Life really is unfair at times isn’t it?

    In all of this, please look after YOU. It is so easy to neglect ourselves when we are busy looking after others or worrying for them. Wls is great but it doesn’t perform miracles unfortunately. To stay strong for others, you need to be strong yourself, so please, take good care of you.

    oh my dear be careful , it’s so hard when family are sick , sending you a massive hug . Tell Vickie we love her and I’m so sorry she poorly . Please you got her to phone the team . It’s so important that we check thing out with clinicians . We think this is normal for wls and believe me most time it is but it the odd times it isn’t . I thought I had wind !!! At 10 months doh it was appendicitis , now who would have thought that would happen to a 56 year old woman 11 month post by pass . A big lesson always get it checked out x

    I will my darling thank you, the Vickster has been in touch with Chichester and is going for an endoscopy on Wednesday, bless her she cannot keep anything down. I feel a bit guilty as I seem to have sailed through compared to her. I cannot eat in the evenings, so a hot milk or tonight a mug of soup. I am quite a healthy eater now, me! I do have a bit of fat though but healthy fat. I have milk for breakfast, some pistachios for mid morning and for lunch today I had a tablespoonful of broad bean, asparagus and mint houmous and a couple of crackers and a small stick of Cathedral Cheddar mid afternoon. Is that ok do you think, oh and the soup this evening, lentil and vegetable yum. Thank you for always being here, I am so sorry that I haven’t been there for others for awhile but I have been here in thought

    We help others by looking after ourselves. It means that we get stronger and are more help! It’s difficult to support others when we are not feeling 100% ourselves. This is why it is so important to put ourselves first sometimes. Something we are not used to!

    Hi all, I am so sorry to have caused so much worry! I’ve not been having a great amount of fun, in the last fortnight I have had just one day of not being sick. I had a stretch last Wednesday and I’m having another next week, so hopefully they will get me sorted soon. The frustrating thing is my weight isn’t really moving at the moment, but I’m sure it will all come out in the wash as they say! Hope all you lovelies are ok x x

    I’m so sorry to hear you’re having such a tough time but I’m pleased that you still feel optimistic. Looking at the posts on here, we all have ups and downs. I really hope all your difficulties are coming to an end and that your future is all plain sailing.

    The good thing is that we have this forum where we can get support, commiserate and empathise with the troubles and celebrate the good stuff. I’d be lost without the lovely people here.

    Oh bless your heart, Vicky. I had a stretch at about 8 months out and from then on it was plain sailing. As for your weight, it’s probably gone into ‘starvation’ mode. Keep up with the fluids, just to keep things ticking over. Once you are able to properly nourish your body again, it will start falling off.

    We have all been worried about you so thank you SO much for this update. Like Chris says, we are all here for each other – good or bad times.
