LOOK ALIVE IT'S FRIDAY!!!!

I have my first appointment with a Endocrinologist on 9th Sept to start the ball rolling on my Lap band Surgery. He will assess me to see if there are any other barriers to me losing weight(other than gorging and stuffing my face) like thyroid & diabetes,which I do not have by the way.

He will also put me on the dreaded Optifast diet prior to having surgery, they do this to reduce the size of the liver which makes the surgery easier and of course less weight lessens any complications with the anaesthetic

I've decided I'm going to start a new blog for this new journey and give you all a blow by blow account - warts and all of my experience. I've decided to do this so I have a record of this and maybe it may help other people decide if this is the right thing for them.

I have a surgery date of 21st November, so fingers crossed all goes well for me to have this.

Hiya Kerry. Good on you for going with your Dr's recommendation to have the lapband put in. I've also decided to go with WLS (but gastric bypass), but my surgery won't be until December or January I imagine, so it will be interesting to watch your progress. I will have to do the optifast thing for a few weeks prior - not looking forward to that!

I have just recently visited my endocrinologist and I have to have a colonoscopy. Joy... good thing they are putting me out for that thing. Perhaps I should inquire about a lap band myself. Keep us posted.
