    Thinking About It
  1. good luck jodi on your surgery , i got a phone call from the royal brisbane hospital today they wanted a few more detail as they have another patient with the same name date of birth but lives in brisbane , so i gave the the address so they can process my refferal as i told them i have never lived in brisbane .
  2. found out last week my gp did not send a refferal to royal brisbane hospital saw him on wednesday did the refferal for me and he also put a letter in from my arthritis doc as well to put the weight be hind his refferal . found out the recieptist never handed a message about it to him at least it has been done now.
  3. i rang my arthritis doc he has asked my gp to send the refferal too the royal brisbane hospital had not heard from then rang my gp he for got to send it but is working on the refferal. have to ring back early next week.
  4. hi helen yes i am on face book my real name is stephanie sloan so you can add me as a friend. yes it would be good to talk about the lapbanding process.
