    Hi!!
    I am new too, but not as far advanced with things as you, i have only just received funding from my local PCT and am awaiting an appointment at Birmingham hospital to come through. Can you tell me how long it took from your initial appointment with your hospital to them setting a date of the op?? And y did you choose the gastric band rather than by-pass, did you look at both options??
    Sorry to hear you are struggling with the pre-op diet, but think of what you will achieve after you have the op, i know thats easy for me to say as im not doing the pre-op diet yet! But, day 2 and nearly day 3 - a day at a time and soon you will be there, and if you remember all them diets you must have tried in the past like me were always worse day 2-3 - take care, stay in touch and let me know how it all goes as it would be great to hear your experiences, good and bad xxxBig Love!!

    Thanks for the kind remarks and support. My consultation was on the 29th March and they initially offerred me the surgery date of 15th April. This didnt give me emough time to get the money together so they then offered me the 25th April for the surgery and thats the day my new life begins. It seems like the day of the consultation, they offer you a date. I asked for one as soon as possible, and "hey presto" I decided on the 25th. This gave me time, also to start the liquid diet, after I had a couple of weeks to have lots of good few meals beforehand !

    I am sitting here, watching the clock go round, because at 3 am, I have to leave to get to Bromsgrove for 7am. I am having the Gastric band fitted at some point, during the morning, and I am feeling nervous as well as excited. I am having my last Diet coke:cry:before the 'Nil by Mouth' comes into force, so I will talk to you all soon. x
