    Hi All

    I’m a newbie. I am lucky enough to have just been told I have funding for my revision (band to Bypass).
    I called St Richards to see what the waiting time was but the lady didn’t know and said I’d need to wait for Mr S to be back next week

    As I’m an impatient donkey who just needs to know does anyone have any ideas as to how the long the wait is from funding (i live in W Sussex). I don’t actually mind how long it is I just want to get an idea so I can mentall prepare myself !!

    Thanks

    Hi , I think it depends on urgency , from my 1st visit to st Richards there was a group of about 6 of us , one I know of got his bypass within a few months , others have waited up to 6 months , my wait was about 4 months ( went in may) but due to complications surgery was stopped , I’m back in on 14th dec to hopefully get bypass by shaw sommers ,

    Sorry fruitbat, I doubt anyone can answer that, the people who have had pct funded ops for initial surgery are in a different position to you having revision surgery, and it all comes down to Mr Summers surgery scheduling, and I think you will have to try his secretary again when he is back. best wishes.

    So pleased you have your funding though. Try to be patient: you will need to be with a bypass!!!

    Ann, i am so glad you have a date to get your bypass done at last. After my wait to get my sleep disorder sorted, I had mine on 22nd Sept. I met up with Justin, who was at the assesment with us, and he has so far lost over 8 stone. Wish you all the best. I have my first weigh in on 1st Nov at Loxwood.

    Hi, I am also at the early stages of waiting for my opp at st Richards, I was told the waiting list was 18 weeks, if true I am 3 weeks into mine.

    I really does vary. So many things have to be taken into consideration. I was very poorly so had mine after about 4 weeks. Barely enough time to think about it really!! I had done huge amounts of research in that time so that I was fully prepared for what lay ahead. I think the average is about 3-4 months? I had mine 3.5 years ago so it could be different…
