Yes I had it put in privately and I had health insurance then but I no longer have insurance. I'm going to have to sign up again but I will check out Defence Health - and I will look at the Centre for Bariatric Surgery. Thanks so much for that!
Hi everyone - I have had my lap band for 10 years now and I'm soooo sick of it!! I haven't lost any weight at all and I'm really over having stuck moments!! I have no fill in at all and I still have dramas with it. I really regret having the surgery in the first place - I know some people have had great success with it but not for me sadly - I really want it out and I'm just wondering a) what health funds will cover the removal; and b ) any surgeons in Melbourne that you can recommend. Would really appreciate any info anyone has - thanks in advance :-)
