Hi , I was a lower BMI , I put on a few kilos before my appointment, which wasn't hard to do with polycystic ovarian syndrome ! I just stopped trying to lose weight! My BMI was 32.5 . I have lost a bit over 20 kg now and my periods are every 28 days which has never happened before in my life , so basically my PCOS symptoms have disappeared . I rarely got my periods before this and I needed fertility drugs to get pregnant (hence the twins in my second pregnancy!), apart from my fourth child when I worked super hard to lose weight and fell pregnant naturally !
The first surgeon I went to only offered me the lap band , so I saw another surgeon and he was happy to go ahead with it .
I was very stressed that I wasn't going to be able to get the surgery too.
