    HI Everyone, I am going ok, slowly but good, have lost 16.1Kgs since the Op. Had a App this arvo where i thought i would get more fill but DR is happy with where i am at! I have 5.5Mls and losing 1kg a week sometimes 1.5kg. I am starting to notice changes in my face, and had a new bra fitted today, (The boobies getting smaller LOL) Has anyone else noticed changes??

    My Surgeon was Hannes Basson, and cant fault him one bit! OP was easy with no complications and recoverey was to a T. I now see Anton Kruger at the BMI centre in Joondalup and cant reccomend him enough!!! HTH

    Your not alone, i can still eat any type of food, though i am only eating a small amount of it I feel "Normal" but dont feel "normal" for a bander as in "normal" for a bander most cant eat bread, steak etc Guess its still only early days, i have 3.8mils in (Over 2 fills) and was banded 1st Dec, not sure what size band i have, guess i should ask next app!!! Felt so guily last night, had my first ice cream in i dont know how long, since before banding! Was so hot in Perth and that time of month and needed one and then felt so bad LOL

    Dr David Yong

    Dont quote me on this but Dr Young and Dr Basson all run under the same centre so i presume would be the same costs. I have a friend being banded by Young in March and Yes she has had to pay the $1250
