    Changes you didn't expect

    Any type of eggs and also rice! Got caught up in my new "tube" untill about 8 to 10 weeks out . Be careful to eat slow with both these foods! The pain is intense.

    One spoonful too many

    Dont panic yet ! After you recover and are back on solid food you can (i have and do) have subway. Just have a wrap now instead of the foot long. Not recommending the biscuits but you can eat... one only . Good luck on your journey, you will feel great when the kilos come off its very much worth the effort.

    Changes you didn't expect

    Ive actually gone to drinking coffee! I used to only have probly 6 a year... now im having one every night and 2 a night on weekends. Im only drinking water the rest of the time as a posed to 3 litres of diet coke before the sleeve. Still crave sweet foods but not doing to bad staying away. .. mostly .lol Some good benefits are my blood tests are now great and im hhealthier than ive been in 6 years!
  4. I was recommended by the doctor and dietitian Sustagen powder for first 4 weeks.Its one that bodybuilders and the old people have. Have it with light milk to keep the fat content down. Be careful not to drink too much as it fills your new (no stomach ) very quickly.

    Consult moved earlier

    Go with the one that has less complication and or infection rate. Ask them they are required to inform you ! There is always a risk but you can minimize it by choosing the better surgeon Good luck

    Not great news

    great news! You need to get the appropriate forms completed by your surgeon for super claim. Super will aprove due to health reasons but it will take a bit of mucking around and a 28 day wait. As stated by others you need to do it ... theres no price on health Good luck on the journey Cheers Gordon

    Newcastle Dr Tim Wright

    Gday mj I was a little different but ,After the information session (you must attend ) i had consult within two weeks, then i had a 2 month wait mainly due to needing clearance from my cardiologist (heart attack 3 years ago) but also there is a longer waiting list for Lake macquarie private hospital. Lake mac has good cardiologist incase something went wrong. .... which nothing did!! All good 5 month later and wish i did it 6 years ago, hope this helps Cheers gordy

    Gday emma I was done by mark gately oct 2017 at lake macquarie private. I prefered mark simlpy because hes younger and thought he had fresher" idea's of the 3 options avaliable but specializing in sleeves. Lake macquarie private is one of the better hospitals in newcastle and the staff are great. The information session is very good with alot of important things to take into consideration. I Full recommend the operation after a hard 6 weeks of liquid, mushy food etc. Im now 34kgs lighter and eating normal food and loving life again. Good luck on the journey Cheers Gordon

    hello my fellow novacastrians I was done by dr gately last week 20th at lake mac. All going well so far down 8kg while on my first week of fluids, i think so far the fluid part of the journey is good.. you feel gas pains (like a heart attack) for about 4--5 days then by the time your feeling okay you will start seeing and feeling results in a good direction. Cheers gordy
