"Weight magement"

About: Salford Royal

I feel very let down by the weight team ,after doing 18 months with rochdale weight team ,I find out wot I had done was wrong ,so when I went to solford I was told that I would not have to start again with them and the time I had done would be taken in to accout ,I did ever thing I was told ,lost 4stone ,went to the surport meetings ,so when I met the first docter who was very nice ,we had a good talk I told him ever thing how bad I felt ,about all the things wrong with me ,and was told that ever thing would be good and he would put me forward at the meeting ,and the funds were there to get it done ,so that was me made up ,so he made me a new appointment ,but said I could get a phone call before that to come back ,top job and of I went told the wife and ever thing ,then ever thing went down hill no phone call went to my second appointment ,this docter started back trcking so when I told him about the last docter had said ,cos I could see were he was going ,he then all so said ,o no problem ever thing will be ok ,and again he would put me forward in the meeting and made me anew appointment with a dietician, did not think a lot of it as was told it was just about how to live with and after the opperation ,but when I got back ,she started going on about how I have to lose more weight and do this and do that ,ever thing I had already done and all I was told I would not have to do again so I was not happy so I came away ready to dump it all ,any my next meeting came up but I was not well so could not go ,then I get a letter saying my appointment with the docter had been moved to well into the next year as it was 2014 ,which just pushed me over the top ,they new that my mobility was bad and getting down there was very hard work as I have a lot of things wrong with me ,I just feel that just capos I was not as big as most of the overs I was dumped to the bottom of the list ,and they went back on ever thing I was told ,I may have been daft cancelling it but I was so angry and upset ,I was thinking of who're was in front of me ,my joints are bad so I just wanted to lose wot I had put on and make sure I did not put any more on ,but I got the feeling I was just a number and not fat anoth and very ery let down
