    Intermediate patient anyone? Wait time is hard!

    Good on you for being proactive about your health. I have been struggling with my weight my entire life so for me it feels right. I have done ooodles of research and feel like it is the tool for me to change. I did consider self funding but am a bit concerned about the after costs if I need follow up surgery (although I have read about people being admitted to public hospitals for follow up care). Wishing you all the best & I can't wait to hear how it all goes for you ;)

    Yes, thanks this is a good point. In my mind I feel so ready but there is always more to learn & prepare for. I guess I have waited this long, 11 more months isn't that long.
  3. Hi everyone, I am very excited to say that I will be sleeved in November. I have private health insurance but dropped my level of cover which took out gastrics. So, I have increased back up & now have to wait 12 months. Boo to that!! Anyway, I don't think I am going to be able to wait!! Has anyone out there been recently been treated as a private patient in a public hospital? My surgeon requires PHI but I would consider swapping if I could be sleeved sooner! How do I cope psychologically when you have to wait 12 months!? Sohealthy (soon to be..)
