Hi everyone, So after thinking about lapband and doing more research than I thought comprehendable over the last 2 years I have decided that there is no reason not to go through with it, what am I waiting for! I have an appointment on May 12th at The Centre for Bariatric Surgery (CBS) with Stewart Skinner. I have already had my blood work done and all the results were excellent! I have also sent in my patient profile etc. My questions are as follows regarding the process/payments etc: 1 - I am wanting to withdraw from my super how long from seeing the surgeon did yours get released? 2- Has anyone borrowed through MAC Credit? My debts outweigh my assets but my income covers everything with plenty to spare so I can afford to repay. (I am looking into this as backup if he can get me in before July and my super hasnt been released then i can use the super to repay the loan) 3 - How long after your first appointment with your surgeon did you have surgery?? I am unable to take leave in July/August from work and really dont want to wait until September so I was wondering if there are cases were he could get me in within 4-6 weeks of seeing him? 4 - Has anyone had Mr Skinner? If so what was the experience like? 5 - Has anyone been with CBS? Do you have to pay for your Optifast or is that included in the cost? 6 - Has anyone paid with their super or self funded for lapband with CBS and if so how much did it cost all up? Sorry for so many questions but I know how amazing you all are at helping each other out and I hope to be able to repay the favour as I go through this journey with all of you!! Thanks, Jenna
