Hi dear Forum, I am Kathrin and originally from Bavaria/Germany. I live in Australia since 06/2012 and I am loving it! :-) We are moving up to Brisbane next year and building our own house and pottery workshop. All is perfect, but not my weight. I am struggling all my life with my overweight. And now I have reached a weight which makes my life very miserable. I am 170 cm and my weight is 108 kg :-( Last year I had a heavy pulmonary embolism after an old thrombosis, apparently in the left leg, broke up and travelled up to my lungs. I am having heavy legs every evening and so son and so son. Today I was visiting my GP and asked him for a lap band surgery. I was refered to Dr. John Jorgensen in Kogarah. I will call tomorrow and try to get an appointment. Unfortunately our private health insurance excluded weight loss surgery. Not sure if I get help from Medicare because I am not for very long with Medicare (before I was on a Business Visa 457 and now perm resident since June 2014). Does anyone has any eperience with Dr. John Jorgensen? Can anyone please explain me how it works with funding via Supa? Thanks for any info. All new for me and I have to research a lot of things :-) Thanks, Kathrin
