Re: August surgery buddies

I have messages the moderator about changing the title of this thread to "August/September surgery buddies" so hopefully we will all soon be together! Thanks to snapdresser for the great idea :)

I'll be off the grid until Sunday but looking forward to catching up then x

Re: August surgery buddies

Yay slewmissy - feel free! I'm sure some September buddies will join you nearer the time as well! Yesterday I had my wafer fitting which was perfect.

Re: September Surgery Buddies

Hi slewsmissy

June/July buddies have a great thread and are really helpful. A few of us are gearing up for August surgery (myself included - 9 sleeps eek!) so you'll be able to see our experiences on the August buddies thread.

Good luck with your preparations x

Re: August surgery buddies

I know the feeling - I often come out of an appt and think "what about....?"!! Eating wise I did loads of planning when I had my wisdom teeth out & didn't eat any of it as I didn't fancy it.

Re: June/July Surgery Buddies

Quick query!

I'm going to be having the nose stitch to help prevent widening during my surgery.

Have any of you had it? What are your experiences?

Thank you x
