  1. Hi. New here.

    I think I'm going to get my gallbladder removed at same time. Would hate the thought of complications later down the rd

  7. Hi. New here.

    Thank you guys. I was turned down by the NHS. They don't fund it in my part of the uk. We don't have private insurance here. My surgery is taking place abroad so i will not meet my surgeon till the morning of surgery. They sent me preop diet to follow 2 weeks prior to surgery. Not much follow up care but am hoping my gp will help me with that.. good to hear about the waking up part. I will read away here to gain much needed knowledge. Btw. This is the first time I have ever written down and shared my weight with others. So big step right there.

    Thank you all.....I'm self funding this operation myself after being turned down by my nhs. I live in U.K....I'm 42. 3 children , great husband but feel like my weight (330lbs) is holding me back....I want to be healthier for my family. I've never had an op before so first anaesthetic....scared I won't wake up. Scared of afterwards and how this will change my family dynamic( we are big eaters)...just a lot of fears really. Really need info on foods afterwards, vitamins etc. Im enjoying reading all these posts. Thanks
