    WANTED: free optifast products, Please.

    Hi everyone, Big ask ... I'm on a very tight budget at the moment and was wondering if anyone has any free optifast products (especially the shakes) they might want to pass on? Happy to pay for postage or even local pickup (around Gawler 5371 South Australia) Thank you in advance to everyone who may reply Sarah.

    non codein painkiller

    Ibuprofen for me helped as it's an anti-inflamatory and helped reduce the swelling. But as others have stated, ask your doc- just to be sure

    Best Frozen Meals?

    I've heard the frozen meals can contain a high amount of sodium. Once a fortnight I have a baking day and divide batches of meals up and freeze them. That way you know what you put into it and you make is according to your tastes.

    Shoulder tip pain 5+months

    I'm 10 months banded and I still suffer from shoulder tip pain. I never had any issue after the operation until about 3+months in. It usually occurs when I eat too much or have foods/drinks that make me burp (especially soft drink). I've spoken to my doctor and advised me it's because the nerves that sorround the band lead up to the arm. Hope this helps
  7. Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone has spare/unwanted Optifast products hanging around at home that they'd like to get rid of. I'm mainly looking for the bars and Coffee + Strawberry drinks. Please let me know what you have and we can make arrangements Thanks, Sarah.

    claiming medical thru tax

    Hi, I'm in SA & as far as I'm aware, you can only start claiming out of pocket medical expenses through your tax when you have reached the Medicare safety net ($2,500 OR $3,000 cant remember). Hope this helps a little bit

    Donating Blood

    I have recently done my first blood donation and everything went well. The only issue now is I recently received my post banding blood test results and I'm severly anemic. So hopefully by then end of the year I can start donating again.

    GP recommendations in South Adelaide

    I skipped my local GP and went straight to Adelaide Obesity Surgery (Wakefield street). I saw Dr Helen Patroney who is their GP and got to all clear from her to contiune to process. It was convenient as I didn't need a referal to see the surgeon plus I arranged the other health professional (dietician,psycologist) appointments all on the same day.
  14. All day fishing charter today and found out i get sea sick :( PB'd 4 times and panicked slightly due to the fact of all the horor stories you hear about band slippages etc. Anyway, things settled down and with that, my anxiety levels too. Been a great day! and have some yummy SA King George Whiting for future lunches and dinners
