    oops sorry, its for an uplift! Ive done heaps and heaps on research, of course its risky but probably just the same risks as being clinically obese which I used to be! :) My mum has had the same op and her results are fine so hopefully Ill be approved, I cant wait to get my letter!! xx

    Sorry if this seems ignorant but I don't know what an 'uplift' is.

    Is it weight related? Sorry...I truly don't know.

    Whatever it is, you seem to really want it so I hope it all works out for you. You've done amazingly well so if it's to help you with the diet or anything then I fully encourage it. people need to look after themselves -life's too short to be unhappy.

    GOOD LUCK!!

    wahey! If you can get in on the nhs instead of forking out all that money bonus!!!!!!!! :D

    Although i reckon the waiting list on the nhs could be quite lengthy!

    How did you go about getting referred????? x

    I dont mind waiting if I know Ill get the eventually, if the waiting list is gonna be very long maybe I can throw another baby in the mix beforehand...haha not!

    I just went to my doc and explained how I felt, she was reluctant, but I really broke down just from dissapointment and she ended up reffering for me haha I think the list may be long, if they reject me I will just go for surgery private with my saves, but I cant justify the money with a family to look after x
