Hi folks, I just wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Alex and I hoping that within the next few weeks I will find out that I have been successful with my bid for WLS via the NHS!
I had my pre-assessment 2 weeks ago but I was told at that appointment that my PCT had only just brought in a stipulation that stated patients needed to show that they had attempted weightloss at least a year beforehand. They are back dating this to all those who were referred from April onwards. My GP wrote my referral letter on April 1st!! I was devastated, my surgeon said other than that I was a prime candidate (I have diabetes, PCOS and a BMI of 45. not to mention all the other ways my weight affects my life) and if it were up to him I would have been under the knife withing 8 weeks.
The team say that there is still a chance though. With that being said I am trying to stay positive and really hoping that I will lucky!
