Good evening

Good evening everyone, it's been a while since I have put anything onto my blog, so I thought I would update you on a few things.
I have been to my Gp's and have asked him to refer me for a Gastric Banding. Well to be trueful with you all, I went about 6 weeks ago, I have been waiting to hear from them and got a letter the other day to say that they had recieved the letter, now they would be writing back to my Gp for him to refer me the the Primary Care Trust. (PCT)
I rang them up asking how long it would all take and they couldn't really say. Once the PCT hear from my Gp they then refer me to a dietation and I see them then they go to the PCT and talk about me, then I have to go back to the dietation and we have another chat then they refer me to the consultant. All in all it could take up to 6 months.
When I do get to see the dietation I will tell them that I need this operation so that I can have the other surgery on my sternum. Which I am willing to wait for if they can do this for me.
I have got 2 very close friends (Michelle and Sue) that have been there for me and listening to me when I get down in the dumps. Sue's son's girlfriend had it done just after christmas and has lost 4 stone in weight. I just hope that I don't have to wait to long. I hate looking like this and am trying so hard to loose weight myself but it just doesn't seem to want to come off. I have managed 6lbs but now it just seems to be on hold. I will keep you all informed of how I get on.

What a LONG time! I'd be tempted to contact your local hospital PALS (Patient Liaison Team) to see if things can be speeded up - that's a ridiculously long wait.

Hi Sally, my sister in law had one fitted last year and has lost a fair bit of weight. Keep you chin up and hope you don't have to wait to long
