Hi guys I'm new to the forum and just wanted to get as much knowledge and advice I can.
I'll give you my stats first:
I'm 17, 5ft3 and weigh 8st4 (53kg). I'm a size 30H/HH depending on the bra.
I saw my GP a year ago and he told me to come back in a year if it's still bothering me. So i went back and he referred me to the hospital who had me for about 10 mins and took my stats and said I should expect a letter from the surgeon? You can imagine my confusion but I was out the door that fast I had no time to ask questions!
I gather the PS is the one who will say yes or no? But is there anything you guys can help me with? Any advice? Experiences? Much appreciated !!

Hey. I'm happy for you! I've got to be approved yet :( just a waiting game at the moment! I'm in the united kingdom but I'm also an American citizen! My dad still lives there so if all else fails I'll fly over and beg haha! No the doctor did say he can't see a reason why I'm not eligible for the surgery just hope the ps sees that too!

But I do worry that it'll go against me! If it hurts now it will hurt later! Just need to convince the ps I'm a good candidate I suppose. I'll update you when I see him! A month to go!

Hi!
I just wanted to check in with you and see how you are doing? I see you have your appointment coming up soon with the surgeon. Are you excited, anxious, nervous? I am sure all the above. I just ran into a friend from high school and she said her daughter is having the surgery on Dec. 2nd. She is 18. I told her about the boards here, so she might come and on here and share her experience. It might be really good to hear from someone your age.
I know reading alot of the posts on here really helped me with some concerns and questions. I am sure you will do great and will keep my fingers crossed and prayers for you that everything will go through!!!!
Good luck and keep us posted!

Nancy :)
