Hello there sorry I've been away but I'm finally back and happy to be in 2019 this is the year I will be able to have my operation once I get the 12 month mark I've been looking into different procedures and I feel the RNY bypass is my best option. I'm 183cm and 142 kg which means BMI of 42, I also suffer from high blood pressure and cholesterol and take meds for diabetes so I have all the co morbidities plus the BMI so I'm perfect candidate for this surgery. I'm single and 35 this year which this operation will be like a long overdue birthday gift to myself and for my future and health and one day start a family once my health and goal weight is achieved I have a goal of around 85-90kgs or 200lbs. (55ish kgs to lose) I have heard alot of reviews about doctors at Ashford and Flinders but I'm curious if anyone in Adelaide has actually had the RNY bypass recently I'd love to hear more about personal experiences and also the final out of pocket cash costs for appointments and operations or gaps total so I have an idea how much money I need to save ALSO how many weeks each Dr needs for the optifast diet as they do differ!! On another note I've been hearing about a Dr DONOFRIO in North Adelaide apparently he runs a smaller practice and heard good things but I need more details if anyone can fill me in plz that would be great. I need to know because I've been told I should start initial appointment's at least 6 months in advance of intended operation date.. Any one from Adelaide they can give any information or personal stories plz mainly on the RNY BYPASS PLZ reply or even send private messages thank you.
Hey all! Just wanted to see if there is anyone who will be having any weight loss surgery (the band in particular) soon with Dr Teague? My mum and I are both getting banded 2 weeks apart, I get to go first on the 17th of Feb, then mum on the 3rd of March. Just want to go through this together!
