Hi JemJem, I saw a nutritionist in Hobart prior to banding. She works in conjunction with Wilko. She seemed to really care. I went once and did not go back again. That was a personal choice I made as I felt that with the support on here and from GP etc I could get all the support I needed. I can't remember her name Susan ? I can find out if you like. I know there is a dietician at the Royal also.

Susan Mcleod is lovely, I have seen her a few times since having my band. Not judgmental at all.

Courts, I read Tuffy's comment on another thread about your dietician having said something about the '20/20/20' rule. Would you mind explaining it to me or pointing me to the thread where you discussed it? Thanks.

Hi,

 

I am a private dietitian based in Devonport and Burnie and have experience with banders.

Also with the help of GP Esther Papas will be starting a Lapband Support Group in the New Year. The aim will be to provide support and share experiences and information. This is not a medical group and will not replace your normal medical care with your surgeon. 

 

First meeting will be on 9th January with following dates yet to be decided but aiming for a meetings once a month on a Thursday night.

 

Date: Thursday 9th January

Location: Latrobe Family Medical Practice, 45B Gilbert Street, Latrobe (access to meeting room from rear door)

Time: 6.00pm until 8.00pm

Cost: Free, (tea and coffee gold coin donation)

 

All Banders, people thinking about getting a band, partners of Banders, or those who have had sleeve, bypass or other bariatric surgery are welcome. 

 

For more information you can contact Esther on 0467 452 887.

 

Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Depends on where you are! In addition to Sophie (ShannonDietetics) in Latrobe, my husband was initially referred to Seaport Practice (Launceston) but we ended up going with another out of Sheffield - Diane Fletcher-Way, who we were both impressed with.
