Hi everybody!



My name is Louise and I am a researcher in bariatric surgery from University College Cork in Ireland.



Having personal experience of the bariatric journey, I was amazed by the huge psychological impact the surgery has & how much we still need to learn.


Ireland has quite a small bariatric community so I would be so grateful if you would lend your voice/experience and be apart of something meaningful.


The questionnaire doesnt require any identifying information, just your experience & will take about 15min to complete.


I am more than happy to forward you the results once I have completed it if you would like.


Here it is



https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1eDZE0cIK8ChVCeWrsX1s-QMAshk5oLErL7c7q5Sk2Kw/viewform



If you would like anymore information or the final results, my email is listed on the first page. Also, if you decide to do the survey, leave a comment & let me know so I can send positive thoughts and love your way! :D



Thank you so much in advance to anyone who contributes their experience :)

I just finished the survey. What surprised me was that it brought a lot of hidden emotions to the surface. I was expecting to just respond to the questions and then go on with my day........but now I have to reflect on how this surgery has changed so many other aspects in my life. How can I be a fairy happy person yet fall ino a dark space so unexpectedly?

So, Loulou 11, I think the results of this survey will impact me personally in many ways. Thanks for posting it.

I did the survey. Not very easy to do on mobile because the screen gets cut off.

I did it...the education is different that in the US, so I wasn't sure about that... but it was interesting... as stated... it made me "think" about things again

Thank you for your participation and your feedback, I really appreciate it.

@@AprilHansen : Yes April, it would be more comfortable in a tablet, laptop or pc. Thanks so much for doing it! :)

@@Miss Mac : I am so glad you felt this survey was relevant to you. Its such a meaningful piece of research and very much needed in the area. :)

Unfortunately this research does not receive funding to provide incentives for participating but hopefully people will see its relevency and complete the questionnaire so that the results are as representative as possible.

@@BigGirlPanties : Yes, apologies for that, it started out as an Irish based survey! thanks you so much for your input :)

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
