need to talk

Hi Samantha

Not surprised you need to talk, at any age finding out you need surgery or having something else wrong is a shock and you will need to time to get your head around it. What type of procedure do u need to have? Sure there is bound to be someone on this site who has had or is due to have the same thing. We are all here to help each other.

Alternatively if you need emotion support you can contact Anne, the young persons project worker i am sure you will be able to help and advice. Hope this is of at least a little help to you.

Anne's contact details for you - / or

Take care

Hi Samantha

Do you have a timeframe for when your op may take place? I don't have the same condition as you but am in the South West also - will you be having it done at Bristol?

Hey Aaron,

If you don't get an answer on the helpline leave a message and someone will phone you back.

There's also teen stuff here

There is also a thread folk who want to chat on msn.

What surgery do you need?
