Went for my consultation 3 weeks ago after thing about it for years, booked the next day for my op which will be 22 jan, spoke to a lady today who had the same op with the same surgeon, now I can't wait, why did I book it so far in advance?? Would go in tomorrow if I could. I've decided not to tell anyone about the op.

Went for my consultation 3 weeks ago after thing...
Had my op 3 days ago, am now at home, and walking...
The hospital (Spire in Bristol) was lovely all the staff were friendly and the surgeon very professional and answered all my questions.
When I'm allowed I'd like to join the gym and go at least 3 times a week, when I went years ago once I got into it I enjoyed it and I need to get that feeling back. I'm also looking forward to buying a pair of trousers that will fit both my tummy and hips.
I'd really love to talk/meet others who have had this surgery just to see how they have progressed and to share experiences.
Have only met my consultant once and he was very nice, very calm answered all my questions, good eye contact, and didn't make me feel rushed or pressured in any way, when I spoke to Mr Wilsons secretary she has been lovely, answering my questions, and putting me in touch with a former patient. Will add to my ratings after my op.
