    Hi Sue, I never had the op so I can't help there. I just wanted to say I know how you feel and welcome you to the board. There are loads of people here who will be able to help you though. Good luck.

    all about W8
    Hi Sue,
    I have just started on very low calorie diet 'all about W8'
    have you heard of it?
    before starting I decided to cut my calorie intake way back, this helped get the headaches over with. so from Mon - Wed low calories then I started the W8 programme yesterday. shake for breakfast, soup for lunch, chick noodles for tea, another shake for supper.
    I have dropped 9lb already all of which im sure is fluid. this morning im in Ketosis and that should mean I will start to burn fat for energy.
    check out others statisics on the W8 section here.

    good luck

    Hi and welcome. Have a look at the Surgical Weight Loss section and you might want to post your question there
