Sara M posted a topic in VictoriaI have 10 * 200 ml Resource Protein drinks which are great for healing during the liquid phase as they are nutritionally sound. The are suitable for post band or sleeve, but not bypass as I have discovered due to dumping. I live in Point Cook 3030 if you want to collect? Details are also in the general forum. Rgds Sara
So I am in the process of getting my health care fund sorted but I have a few questions. I live in Victoria and I was wondering how much people where out of pocket with a PHI? Has anyone succeeded in dipping into their superfund for the out of pocket funds? One more question, apparently with some health funds there are gap cover doctors, which means that there is no gap in the procedure so no out of pocket, has anyone found these doctors? I cannot find the right practitioner on the list for the PHI i want to go with. Apologues for so many questions but I hope someone has some answers to these. Thank you
jen16 posted a topic in VictoriaI did something today that I normally wouldn't do... While at the hospital waiting in clinic - I saw a young guy (couldn't be older than 20 maybe younger?) with his mum who was about to start the whole banding experience. Quite frankly he look quite scared, so I approached them while they were waiting also and let them know there was THIS great support group website/forum that I have found so much help with as there is such a lack of support post banding through the public system. I told them that it's JUST people sharing their experiences, however it's great to know your not alone when certain things happen and its the first time. I told the mother "I'm sure you'll be a bit like my mum & there's so theres a section with recipes when you run out of ideas" - (as I can't physically stand long enough to make anything at the moment due to my OA and nerve damage, not even a cup of tea, mum does my food for me. She is registered as my carer as most days I can't even dress myself). I hope I did the right thing? Would you do this?
