I had my 6 month check up this week. My bariatric nurse as I stood up said "oh wow" - which, given she sees patients every day, was a lovely boost. I was suffering with light heads and dizziness after 3 months. I was told to up my (good) carbs and from that day on I havent had any dizzy spells or any further problems. I showed her this picture and I asked if I could give something back. See - I didn't pay anything for my surgery. I had it done on the NHS, so I've offered to volunteer and speak at local seminars for patients considering surgery. They want to use this picture - I just wish I wasn't pulling a silly face at the start now haha.
