Well I called the clinic and they said all my paperwork has been reviewed by a Professor I've been registered with at Leeds General Infirmary but they can not get me an appointment for upto 13 weeks!! It's gonna feel like the longest 13 weeks in my life :( it'll all be worth it in the end though :) xx

Im not sure how long... it depends if you need to stretch the skin to fit the implant. In my case, im not getting a large implant so my surgeon will just put the implant in at the same time... shes taking a couple different sizes in though to test it out

Ahh right I see.

I found some info last night on how to do the rice test, I know it's not the same as trying implants about but I suppose it's a way for me to try and determine a size. My bf (bless him) told me to go buy some MORE!! chicken fillets thinking that would be easier than do the maths (I hope I'll be alright coz I work in accounts) but he didn't understand they really don't work in that way, lol.

I suppose I'll just have to make sure when I'm closer to consultation, I include questions about sizers/enhancers for my surgeon should he mention it. Deep down I just want to rush in there already and just get the implants fitted but I know and understand all of my surgeons advice is in my best interests.

When is your op? Sorry if I've already asked lol. Where abouts are you from?

My bf also wants to have a chat with my parents before my consultation (his friends are talking crap basically lol) to make sure that I am doing this for the right reasons and no matter how much I tell him I am he still wants to hear it from my parents. I don't know if he's over reacting or anything but I suppose I can understand?? Would any of you?

I just want my consultation through so I can book in for surgery and hopefully have the op by Xmas and then hopefully start 2012 a new woman!! Fingers crossed!! Xx (sorry for the essay) xX

not sure if you're talking to me but im waiting to have my pre op.. then it'll be 2 weeks after that i have my op. Im from New Zealand :)

I do understand that he'd be questionable but he should really trust your decision then having to go to your parents.

I keep telling him he should trust my decision but he wants to hear it from them himself. I suppose having a 10 year age gap makes him think a little deeper too? Lol.
2 weeks isn't too bad, do you have them replaced with implants straight away after removal or is it separate ops for each?
Sorry to ask so many questions I just want to understand everything properly before I meet my consultant and can make sure I ask the right questions!!
Good luck with your op Hun xx

Well I'm meeting my surgeon on 3rd November, (not too sure what to expect as my letter says this is a consultation only?!) Wondered if anyone from Leeds area had heard of Daniel J.A Thornton? I've found his CV online and he his an author of 2 books but it is still nice to know of anyones thoughts and opinions if they are available?
What should I expect at my first meeting with him? I thought probably talking about surgery as my funding is approved but I'm not too sure what to expect as every post I read on here seems to say something different? Screwy
