    Well I've spoken to the clinic I'm considering and they explained everything and said bypass is best and usually is done endoscopically which is safest and quickest recovery and I've made sure my PHI covers the item numbers i was given and everything is good to go about to sign on the dotted line after a lot of deliberation about which company to use for PHI i always make sure i do a ton of research before any big decisions... Thanks

    Everyone I've spoken to has said that the Ruen y bypass is newer better more efficient people have been doing the sleeve and band for years my mates mother was banded back in 2000 but the band's were full of issues as they could move and break etc so the sleeve and bypass are more permanent... The sleeve removes most of the stomach but the bypass does that and more by removing/bypass some of the intestine... Pretty sure that's correct... Bypass has been known recently...and that's the one i plan on getting to be most efficient and long term..
  5. I've done alot of research found the best PHI that I'm happy with top cover with allot of benefits which will cover all the hospital stays needed all the pbs and non pbs medications whilst recovering and they said if i want to pay a year upfront they will give a discount that way i can spend the next 12 month's saving for the operation and pre/post op appointments and stuff I've also decided to go with flinders private hospital in adelaide they do all inclusive cost not like another one who asked for an amount but then needed to add extras for gaps and anesthesist but flinders has one set cost for the lot from what I've found overall difference of about $1500 between the two clinics so I'm happy now just hope the next year goes quick enough obviously still need to get the right GP referral and have the initial consultation but was told they are very busy and booked up until xmas so yeah I've been reading everyone else's success stories and thought i deserve it for myself this time next year i will have just turned 35 so by the time I'm 36 I'll be a new man as I'm only about 60KG from my final goal (considering some people I've seen lost 30kgs in just 3 months in very excited) Thanks for reading....

    I think most people are opting for the gastric bypass it is the newest technology and best choice for max weight loss from everything I've read

    I wasn't sure but spoke to a lady from private hospital and she said yes endoscopy is separate operation or something or is it just simply using the endoscopic camera etc to do bypass

    Did anyone ever cheat on the preop diet ?

    This is why I'm deliberately starting my PHI later so that next year when i go for surgery or even preop diet it will be a good 4 weeks after all 3 birthdays in July and early Aug... My best mates my brothers and then mine all in a 3 weeks gap then i can rest a few weeks before i begin the fasting stage and to give my body a break from the alcohol before i diet but i may have to ask the docs about alcohol within a month before surgery and diet....
