    Just got back from the hospital. The surgeon I saw commented 'you've lost nearly 6 stone' so of course he was asking questions. I mentioned CD expecting the condemnation we've all heard but he was 'tell me more about it, I've got a couple of patients with BMI over 40 and can't shift the weight', that I'm doing really well and he wanted to put them onto CD. So I talked him through it and referred him to the CD website and my CDC.

    So :D :D

    18 weeks wait till my op thought, unless they can squeeze me in... :(

    Thanks Charlotte; I hope so because I can't do any serious exercise until four weeks after the op, and I want to get down the gym asap...
