    So glad to see this post this morning!

    The team at Dt Richard’s are second to none (I’m biased as I had my bypass there!) and you continue to be in very good hands.

    Take it easy, follow the guidelines, be kind to yourself and dream of how much better you life is going to be from now. I’m over the moon for you.

    How are you feeling today, Lelly?

    I’ve been away on holiday to Corfu. So sorry I couldn’t help before now.

    If you are still having ‘pee trouble’, phone your team or ask your GP to see you or suggest something. It takes a while for our bodies to work ‘normally’ again after any major surgery but make sure you keep on top of it. Don’t let anyting that worries you drag on. Your team will be happy to help you.

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday Doodah, we all missed you on here. My trouble was poo related rather than pee :O) but hopefully getting under control, I did speak to Loxwood and they reassured me but said to contact them if it continues. I am feeling better thank you and do not regret having this done, although my hubby bought fresh crusty bread yesterday and I found myself sniffing it, I am not hungry but the look of things that I used to love plays with my head. Cooked sausage stuffed chicken breasts wrapped in bacon with new potatoes, macaroni cheese and salad with coleslaw on Saturday ans although I looked at it lovingly the smell of cucumber was the worst thing. I did stick my finger in the macaroni cheese sauce though, bad girl

    That’s all entirely normal. It’s such a hard habit to break – eating when we are not even hungry. As I type, I have a plate of toast that had been sitting there for over an hour now as I would rather have another brew than eat the toast! I will eventually get round to eating it but not until my thirst has been quenched fully. Tea is a total lifesaver for me as I can drink it all day without guilt. It also comforts me more than anything else in the world. I gave up sugar in my tea 6 months ago so that I could drink more tea without having to worry about my teeth with all the sugar I was having!

    Slow and steady wins the race. Not just the sprint at the beginning – the whole entire Marathon!

    Thank you, the weather on holiday was absolutely amazing. Average of 34C every day. Being to lizard I now am after wls (always cold) it was bliss to be so warm!! I had pistachio ice cream every day and still managed to lose 5 lbs! It must have been all the swimming!

    Hi Doodah,
    Glad you had a good holiday, great to have you back,
    I am in a bad way and not doing to good, since I had my band emptied by Mr Chris Pring to stop the awful symtoms of regurge and pain and sickness, it has made me so hungry I am eating so much and have put on a stone in just 3 weeks I cannot stop eating, I am still having pain but just because I am overdoing it but can not stop. I tried to phone st richards today only it was so busy i did not get a answer on the phone, I have been given a letter for a revsion to gastric by pass and I am at a tier 4. I believe this still means a long wait, I am not sure what to do I hate myself and the way I am begining to look again. I wondered if chris pring would fill my band again until i can have the revision, he said the band was on my oesophagous .! sorry needed to spill, i cannot stop crying and that makes the cycle worse.
