I am due a consultation re-By-Pass surgery as soon as possible (me thinks, and hope they will consider me).
Now, I had the Gastric Banding 2007 when I was 17stones. Bad move. I lost weight initially, but found I could not even swallow my saliva.
Because I had it done privately, the NHS refused to help me when I got into difficulty. They did say-the Band had slipped out of position
or had been placed incorrectly. In 2009 they agreed to deflate it- so I have ballooned to 20+stones.
I am now prepared to have this bypass and hope this is the end of the ferris wheel.
I am 73 years old. Too old some may say. But I want to die slim!!
