    Are you April too Deeishere22?
    It's been suggested by my doctor that I go see someone to talk to... so I've booked in for that, i'm not really looking forward to that.
    I also asked the surgeon about my scar and he said it would be fine, and he will just work around it. So that's a weight off my mind

    Hi Katiapoos, the surgeon said I don't have one of the reasons to access my super ie - my weight is not life threatening, I don't have acute pain and I don't suffer from mental illness. I went back to my GP today and laid out all my cards and all my thoughts and feelings on the table and she sent a letter back to the surgeon and he is signing on the basis of mental illness (I do suffer from depression, but I don't like talking to therapists and due to a suicide attempt when I was younger I refuse anti depressants - so it is true, I just suffer in silence). It is all go now, I just need to do the paperwork and leg work and I am booked in for April.

    Thank you both, it has been emotional the last few days too with the initial consult and some issues there but finally booked in for April 2018. So excited!

    Hi Ez!
    I haven't yet, but am planning to go through super for my surgery. Fingers crossed there's no issues.
    I'd also love to see replies of people that have done it and if it was relatively straight forward...

    Hi all,
    I've been stalking this page for a few weeks now and finally thought I would introduce myself.
    I have been dieting and exercising for about 5 years and have lost 50kg, but in the last 2 years, I put on a lot of weight... I had so much happen in such a short amount of time - to give you an idea, I went to 5 funerals and had a miscarriage in the space of 18 months -  I lost my way and my motivation. I have found that I cant get myself back on track and I am falling further and further behind. I feel like this surgery will give me a kick to get back on track and help me find myself again.
    I have only told my mum, brother, husband and 2 friends that I am having this done... my husband and best friend both told me not to do it... it's really hard to feel like I'm doing the right thing when I don't have the support of the people around me.
    I also have quite a big scar right across my stomach and we still want to have more children. Does anyone know if these things will affect the surgery at all? I'm going to ask the doctor too.
    Anyway... I have my initial appointment with the surgeon on Tuesday, so wish me luck!
