First surgeon consultation time scale



Recommended Posts

Hi
Wondering if anyone can tell me what the time scale was, from first surgeon consultation until surgery date in the UK on NHS?


Hello Ellie

My name is Leanne I am 45 from the U.k also I'm from Essex and having my op on the NHS in St Marys hospital London my date is to be confirmed my whole time span will be 1 and a half years in all but that was because I had to have further tests for other things they found alone the way i.e. sleep apnea and had tests because they thought I had cancer.Any questions you have get back to me.Are your family friends being supportive of you?

Hi Leanne , I'm in Nottinghamshire and had my first consultation with my surgeon at the end of April. Yesterday I got my date for my pre op appointment which is in 9 days 👏🏻.

I just can't believe I've been given this opportunity and am so excited. It's good to be able to share experiences with others in the Uk .

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
