    hi, i am going for my first appontment with a consultant to have a gastric bypass, i am feelin sick and nervous, i am scared that they wont let me have one and i have so much weight to lose i may never do it. Does anyone know how much weight you have to lose before surgery, what will happen after today,how long before i hear if i have been excepted. this weight thing is a hideous battle, don't you think i have been over weight all my life recently turned 30, weight has got worse over the last year and i am now averageing about 24 st ( sorry cant do the pounds ). i just hope mr daley is feeling in a good mood :)

    Hi, there are a lot of people on this board who have had the surgery, I'm sure they will respond. Good luck.

    Hi and welcome to minis, its a worrying time but we have all been through what your going through....sometimes it is easy for some people to get the approval and funding and for others its a major battle, my advise would be to keep on fighting for what you want, I was turned down at first but carried on and got my funding and I am now well on the way to reaching my goal weight...xx

    Hi Anne
    :welcome: and good luck
    On the link given by someone above you will find posts from a good few of us who are at the same stage as you - all inquisitive and panicky lol ! and might i say not very patiently awaiting our first appointments !!!
    There's loads of helpful advice from others who have been through the process and if you can't find the info you need just ask, everyone is very helpful.
    Let us know how you get on

    I too considered surgery, so right now I know how you feel. Get as much information as you can, try to keep as clear head as you can and ask as many questions as you can. You can do this, you just need to find a bit of courage and the world is your oyster. :)

    Goodluck!

    Hi and welcome. You are bound to feel nervous but read as much as you can and make a list of questions to ask at your appointment. Also visit our Surgical Weight Loss section for support
