    Living in a remote area?

    Hi Freshstart, I had to travel from Alice Springs to Adelaide for all adjustments and follow ups. I had the exact questions as you do, firstly take the adjustments really slow as you don't want complications secondly if you have a real emergency RFDS should be able to evac you to Adelaide. Listen to you team and your band and you shouldn't have any problems. Good luck :-)

    Darwin doctors and cost??

    The crowd from Adelaide Obesity Clinic comes up and does the surgery and follow ups every 6-8 weeks, they have a fantastic team, a little more expensive than the other Dr in town but all follow up consults including fills for the life of the band are included in the price. They provide excellent flow up including dietitians, psychologists, excercise therapist plus available anytime for help via email, txt, phone, Skype etc. I'm originally from Alice Springs where if I had any problems with the band I had no one in town available. I've had my band two years and yes it's been a slow process but I have found Dr Bessell and his team very helpful and friendly, I would recommend them to anyone. All I can say dont just look at the price but see what services are available if something goes wrong and what team is available to you. Good luck with your decision. Cheers :-)

    Hi Sarah, I have been claiming everything from PATS from day one, it saves so much money with the travel. Where did you have your surgery and who by? Cheers

    Had my first official Ralph this morning

    Isn't it funny I had my first one last week but it was a strawberry I didn't chew. My god the saliva was worse than my dog ( he's a bullmastiff ) and when it came up it was a projectile object. Never again do I want to experience that again. Lesson learnt must chew strawberries. Lol î•

    Any banded in the Alice?

    No Probs, just let me know when you are free and we can arrange a time to catch up. Seems your travelling to Melb to have the surgery are you using PATS to help with your travel costs? Good luck with your op.

    Dr Justin Bessell: Adelaide Obesity Surgery

    The staff at Adelaide CLinic and Wakefield are fantastic, I was banded in nov 2010, and have no regrets at all. Keep in mind everytime you go back for a band adjustment you pay nothing!! I suggest you listen to Dr Bessell and his team as they work well together and really know what they are doing. Good Luck
