Phew!!! Gastro Surgeon at Coventry University Hospital saw me today and has put me on the waiting list for surgery. It is a 6 month wait but Ive had reflux for 15 years and now have a 3cm sliding HH and Barretts.
I have put on loads of weight in the last 6 months due to immobility and stopping smoking as well as a limited diet so I have to do the liver shrinkage diet, 2 weeks before surgery.
I have been reading others experiences of this op and find it all very encouraging.
I would be glad of any information about the op and the liver shrinkage diet. The Clinical nurse said a calory count of between 800 to 1,000 calories a day, which is about double what my intake is at the moment.
Feeling positive that I can get my life back soon
