Hi Both

The email that Frederick sent to me said that he did 2 packages - one for 4000 staying at the Campanile and one at 4500 staying at the Crowne Plaza.

He copied Dr Chris into the email also, so now I am totally confused, but I too thought it sounded too good to be true.

Hi Jiggy
Yes I got the same E-mail as you from Frederick. I have E-mailed him back telling him I will be making my own arrangements due to the price being incorrect.
Im glad I didnt cancel my hotel reservation before I E-mailed Dr Chris otherwise I may have ended up not having anywhere nearby to stay.
I too thought it was too good to be true!!

Hi
This is the exact information that Dr Chris E-mailed to me....
The Financial forfeit will be 3950 + the package for ECFS this is probably 600Euro. You have to pay 400 Euro in advance to the account of ECFS and 395oEuro to me the day before surgery at my home consultation. ECFS will collect the remaining 200 Euro at the hotel with you.

Hi Thanks for that - out of interest - how much is your room in the Campanile costing doing it yourself, and how many nights are you staying.

Thanks

Hi Jiggy
The hotel is costing 207 Euros for a twin room for 3 nights. Thats about £165.00 at todays exchange rate.

Hi, I've just been reading all the postings between Jiggy and English Rose and I have quite a lot in common with you both! I just returned yesterday from Belgium after having my band fitted on Weds(6th Aug), and I too travelled from Lancashire! I also stayed at the Campanile Hotel in Vilvoorde which is about half-way between Dr Chris De Bruyne's house (and consulting rooms where you go the night before) and the hospital. It is possible to walk to the hospital in about 20 minutes as my husband (who went with me) walked it several times! I think you'd be better getting a taxi though when you come out the following day as you may feel a little delicate( I know I did!). If I can be of any further help feel free to ask.................I don't mind. All the best, Kath.:):biggrin2::)

Hi kath,

Bet you are glad that it is now done and dusted. How much weight are you hoping to lose? And how did you travel to Belgiom? Hope you are feeling OK?

Jiggy
