Hi All, I am about 4 months into my research and I am completely overwhelmed. I am look at having the sleeve done but I am at a complete loss as to which surgeon I should go through. There are SO many! At this stage I am planning on going private at this stage and have been looking at Stephen Watson, has anyone used him? My major concern, which I know is going to sound completely ridiculous is showing the surgeon my body (-.-). I have severe anxiety and the thought of it just makes me panic. At the initial appointment, could someone advise what actually happens. I feel like I need to be prepared to what I am going to walk into. Thanks all!
I'm sooooo excited to tell you! So Medibank have changed their policies and only cover weight loss surgery on their top cover for about $120 a month. I just joined with PEOPLE CARE who cover gastric banding and plastic/ reconstructive surgery on their MID LEVEL HOSPITAL $500 excess for only $20 a week ($80 a month) for a 25 year old single!! They are also honouring the waiting periods I've served, which for me means peace of mind post banding should anything happen. It also means I'm not paying for anything I don't need!
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
