Hi. I am 6 stone overweight BMI of 39 with PTSD, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, mobility problems and sleep apnoea. I saw the weight loss clinic for Glasgow and Clyde 18 months ago where I was told I was not eligible for surgery as I did not have diabetes or a heart problem. Their advice to diet and follow their weight loss program. I previously did this for a year when living in Ayrshire and gained weight!!!!
I have now been working with a private dietician since February and in that time I have managed to lose half a stone which is the first weight I have managed to lose in several years. However it is not enough nor is it at a rate I am happy with.
I am desperate for surgery. The system does not allow for a referral to the surgeon directly you have to get past the nurses first who are convinced I must be doing something wrong.
Does anyone have any advice for me?
