    Hi There.
    After Medical conditions including ME, Fibromyalgia and Depression, Caused my weight to soar beyond my control I took action and. underwent a Gastric Bypass. This was a hard choice, but as I couldn't exercise, I had to do it, to ensure I was able to be here for my kids.

    I lost 5 1/2 stone but then saw that my stomach stuck out like I was pregnant!! I was then diagnosed with Diastis Recti, which is Separated Stomach muscles. I am dealing with constant chronic pain, worsening IBS symptoms and flare ups. This can only be corrected with surgery, it is not a tummy tuck (I would have put up with excess skin, no problem. Any exercise makes the problem worse, so I am stuck with at least another 2 stone to lose. My GP, and the Bariatric team say I NEED this surgery, but The NHS will not fund it and I need it done to continue my weightloss journey.

    I Hate asking for this, but making sure my kids' needs are met, as a single mum, leaves me no option. thank you ever so much for reading and/or sharing,even if you do not donate (although I would love it if you did x)

      Another Surgeon took a look at me and again agreed that i NEED the operation. He submitted a request to funding and Just received my 4th refusal. I have even got my local MP to support me nd he is writing to them on my behalf too. I am determined to try to stay positive, but it is looking less likely to happen, without the help of kind heated people like YOU.. reading my story

      Hi, I had my story published in "LoveIt" Magazinethis week ad to be honest, I was dreading it. But not all comments have been negative, once I explained that I am not trying to raise the money for simply a cosmetic operation. But, it is for health reasons Iam continuing to eat healthily, but not losing anymore weight. I am hoping to raise this money, so that I can get more active, to shift the 2 stone minimum that I still Have to lose. Without the operation, I cannot exercise because it will make my condition worse..
