    Melbourne Group

    Hi guys, I live in Brunswick and have been banded a little over two years. I was wondering if there is anyone nearby who'd be interested in meeting up or if there is any support groups in the area or nearby? Bree
  2. Hi everyone, I've decided that I want to get sleeved - only thing is I don't have private health and I don't think I can mentally handle waiting 12 months! So the two doctors that are willing to see public patients are Paul Burton and Andrew Smith at CBS (http://www.lapbandaustralia.com.au) I was wondering if anyone has been sleeved by either of these surgeons and if you're willing to share your experience. Also, I hope I'm not asking too much but if you have self funded your sleeve preferably in Melbourne, I'd love to know how you went about it. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi guys! Its my first time posting here but have been reading for a little while now and wanted some suggestions. I'm 8 days post op and am feeling overwhelmed (will probably have to do a separate post for that haha) and am unsure of what to do for a dietician. I thought I would have things under control after I had the surgery but I had never really looked into specific nutritional value of things and the intake i should be getting, but i was more focussed on meal ideas and getting my head around portions (or trying to at least). I had my surgery with Prof Paul O'Brien at CBS in Melbourne and they suggested I see a dietician (i think her name is Helen Burzon?) but I think that was more just for her seminar. I was wanting to find a dietician that I can have along this journey to keep me on track and was wondering if anyone had some suggestions. I'm in the western suburbs of Melbourne but I don't mind travelling if it means I'm seeing someone that will be helpful. Cant wait to chat with all of you!
  4. Hi, I am looking into having lapband surgery and have spoken to my health fund who said that I would be covered with a private doctor in a public hospital, has anyone been in this situation? Can anyone recommend a doctor in Melbourne who does the surgery in a public hospital but as a private patient? Thanks heaps Jo

    ParkRun

    Hi guys, I've just done my first ParkRun today. I did it in 29:49. Woot woot!! I did the Maribyrnong course and it was just amazing. I just can't believe how far I have come. This time last year I was morbidly obese: now I'm slightly faster over 5km than the average for women my age. Anyone else out there wanting to have a go? If you go to the Maribyrnong event send me a message here: I can't go every week due to work but if you want to meet up so we can fist bump on the finish line, let me know!

    New Melbournian!

    Hey, I am new to all of this and i am taking out my PHI in a fortnight. I am planning on going with medibank, what have others thought of this PHI? Also, apparently there are doctors that have gap cover which means that you are not out of pocket (only the excess) has anyone gone through this way? I also heard you can access your super in order to pay for out of pocket expenses, has anyone done this and succeeded? thank you and sorry for so many questions. I just want to make sure I have my fact rights!
  8. 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
  9. HI, Im new to the forum. i have been thinking about weightloss surgery for sometime. my BMI is 48 and so from what i have read a sleeve would be a better option. I have basic hospital with people care which doesn't state obesity surgery as restricted but it doesn't say its covered either. I've called and no one seems to know without an item number. anyone know the item number ? Also i currently live in point cook and would like advice on a surgeon this side of town as they all seem to be based in the S.E suburbs. TIA

    Hi..newbie here!

    Hi everyone Just wanting to introduce myself. My name is Samantha and i will be having my lapband surgery on the 1st May 2013 by Mr Jason Winnett. My heaviest i have ever been is 176kgs which was 3 years ago. I lost 42 kgs on diet tablets then i fell pregnant and gained most of it back. I have been on the shakes for one week now and my starting weight was 162.8kg and ive lost 7 kgs so far. Im so excited and cant wait for the shakes to be over and done with. This is my time now!!!
  11. Hi All, I just thought I should give a formal "Hello". This site is just wonderful and I am really grateful to everyone who shares their stories - good and bad! I wont bore you too much with mine though - same old yo-yo dieting, Personal training injuries, fat genes, and have decided to pull my head out of the sand! I have had enough of beating myself up about my weight and wearing fat frumpy daggy clothes. So banding it is! I have to say though - even with all the stories and knowledge and information - I am getting a little bit more nervous each week, and with each step I take. The chat with the doctor for a referral, getting the bloods and urine done, and the next step is meeting the surgeon - Stewart Skinner in Melbourne (has anyone been banded by him??) - on December 4th. I don't think I have really sat down for a decent length of time and talked about how fat i am and how unhappy it makes me. Im not looking forward to it - but at the same time I am! Anyway, I have some questions about time frames. How long from your initial meeting with the surgeon was it before you got banded? Did you have to wait long? Does everyone do Optifast and if so, for how long? Also how long was your stay and can you describe the whole process from arrival to getting home? I am hoping to prepare myself for the journey, so any information will be appreciated. Good luck to you all!

    Where to start???

    Hi All, I am very new to this and at the early stages of research and booking into information sessions. I currently weigh 119kg and have BMI of 42. I am looking for a service in the Melbourne / Northern suburbs areas. I don't have any private health insurance and am looking to self fund the surgery and follow up services. Upon doing my research I am having difficulty finding aproximate prices for the surgery and all follow ups. I would greatly appreciate if anyone can give me an idea of what I should expect to pay for the entire service. Any advice that I should consider before making any commitments? Iwould love to learn from your experiences. Much appreciated Sina
  13. Hi All, Im really happy to have found this site. Its cold in Melbourne at the moment (who would think that) but it has been a time for me to source some info on this topic that has been on my mind for years...and I mean years!!!! I refuse to spend another summer hiding away and have really run out of excuses for not attending all those beautiful social events, BBQ's, swimming pool invites ect. My kids have grown 10, 7 & 5 and I no longer can use the excuse that someone is sleeping, im feeding (all those that you can use when they are babies). I no longer want to miss out on the beach/camping adventures. It was only last week that a fellow camper said to my husband...."oh I thought you were single. I didnt know you were married". This has "shocked me" into action....some people do not know I even exist but thats my fault. I no longer want to "hide away". I want to live life to its fullest. Now is the time to do it. Im not scared. Just angry, that I have allowed myself to get to this point. Bring on summer 2013; a new, fun, adventuous mumma will be born.
