  1. 37 kg in 4 months amazing I want full bypass nothing less!!
  2. Hello there I'm very curious to get any more information and first hand experience. I'm from adelaide and I've been researching local surgeries and my choices have come down to either Ashford hospital surgeons or Dr Donofrio at the North Adelaide Bariatrics. I'd like to know more about the latter plz and that the latter is much more private and doesn't require such a big gap payment as I've spoken to both surgeries. I have PHI but still have 10 months wait but will need to start deciding who Im going to go with. Thank you.

    Sorry to hijack but I'm talking to others who are going through WLS and they have told me that Medicare Will give some money back for the surgery out of pocket i had never heard of that before. One lady got $1100 back off Medicare after WLS.....

    6 months and 46kgs but is that including pre op weight loss? Still that's great roughly 8kgs a month. Definitely can't complain.. What's your routine like in terms of exercise and diet do you still take protein shakes. Tnx

    I've a dilemma I want to lose weight but if I lose it before my operation in 10months I'll no longer be able to qualify for bypass. I know how to lose weight that's not the issue. Its long term weight management that I know I'll get from that new bypass they do as it stops me from absorbing much calories and to curb cravings.... I'm down 1kg ( after a couple days) by just upping my protein intake each day... So its a catch22 because I don't want to gain anymore at the same time I can't lose much without being out of the obese BMI In order to qualify for WLS...

    Hi there it's more about height than age but for reference my mum is 56 and about 160cm and i think her best weight is i think 75kgs so i think right now your weight is spot on at 75 kgs ! As i said above the bmi tells me to be 62-85 which i know for a fact that 85 is perfect for me and that i may even go to 90kgs with some muscle growth with weight training once i do lose all my weight again.

    Yeah I just did my bmi for peace of mind I'm at 42 bmi and the result says Your suggested healthy weight range 62.6 - 84.3kg but I know for a fact my perfect weight range is 80-90 so the top of the bmi range. In 2012 I actually got down to 85 and that was perfect! But after a year or so due to depression and other factors I went right back to 130+ and now I'm at 145kgs and decided my best chance for long term success is the ruen y bypass which I've got to wait 11more months as I only just decided to go with PHI.

    BMI isn't the best it doesn't take into account bone structure 70 KGS is fine

    35kgs in 5 months is great but you would have lost some pre op?

    OPTIFAST VS OPTISLIM

    Hey guys I'm very curious why are we being told specifically to use optifast only?? Also is it just two weeks preop all food is just optifast nothing else? And then a few weeks post op liquid only is that also optifast or soups etc I'm hoping to go full bypass next yr

    Thnx how long were you on pre op total 15kgs that seems insane to me? Yes I believe doing some kind of weights will help with the loose skin issues I assume you're 1984; like me what operation did you have ? Have you continued with optifast long term or some kind of protein shakes? I'm looking at going full bypass

    Just look at all the work you've done that's the main thing... Curious is the excess weight surgery skin tuck etc included in the original gastric surgery or is it a whole other surgery you will have to fund yourself or does the PHI help with it I'm very curious... I know I'll probably have to get into weight training quickly so that i don't get too much excess skin myself but i think men have an easier time with it than women i think Eileen end up with more maybe because of the male genes and muscles because i remember when i did lose 40kgs back in 2012 the skin was not an issue really i mainly need and want the bypass to help ensure longevity!!
