I had lifechanging Bariatric surgery september 3rd 2013.
In the next ten months, I quickly lost 12 and a half stone. It feels amazing to have been given the chance to start again, to reclaim my life!
I started a You Tube Channel to document my journey to help others in the uk and abroad who are going through the same thing.
Unfortunately, after loosing such a huge amount of weight, I have been left with huge amounts of excess skin on my stomach arms and thighs.
I get sores in the folds of skin, It gets sore and uncomfortable. I have to tuck my skin into my clothing. It makes me feel very down and insecure having so much skin 'flapping' about.
At the moment, the NHS doesn't cover follow up procedures for extreme weight loss, so the only options I have are to find the money or live with it.
I am finding living with it very difficult and depressing. I don't show it, but I feel horrible under my clothes.
I am hoping to raise funds to help me to achieve my dream of having surgery to remove the excess skin on my stomach.
I have had a consultation and need a procedure called a Fluer de lis. This will cost £6,600
The excess skin causes alot of emotional and physical difficulties and would mean the world to me to have this surgery. After fighting for 5 years to get the surgery and permanently changing my life so drastically to be able to lose the weight, I'd love the chance to be left with a body that fits!
