Recommended Posts

Hi there, are there any others having surgery in July? 

I am booked in for 5th of July to have the sleeve.

I'm excited and nervous!! I took out phi a year ago to cover the surgery.

What’s everyone doing to prepare mentally? It doesn’t feel real yet.

My clinic have a psychologist that they require you see. I will have had 5 sessions with her pre surgery. That is helping get my head together over it and will see her post surgery too.

Went for my gastroscopy yesterday. My surgeon requested it be done as a precaution. All clear from that. So next stop is the big surgery!

If you've been to 2 clinics and are still confused, they haven't done their job very well. The GP at the clinics should have explained all the options, what you need to do, the costs involved, a time frame for surgery and the outcomes expected. If you haven't had an appointment yet, then the GP will explain everything on your first appointment. Once you've had that initial appointment, you should be a lot more clear on what surgery might be the best for you.

Yes, go and see the GP at Dr Bessell's rooms at Wakefield Hospital, they'll talk you through all the ins and outs. Yes, it costs around $180 before rebate, but it should answer your questions. They're more thorough there than at other clinics, in my opinion.
