    Hi Kate. I tried to send you a message but I'm unable to.

    The group that I'm a member of you need to be invited by a member. If you are happy to give me your email address I can pass it on to the admins of the group.

    I am also happy to answer any questions. I had my surgery August last year and it was the best decision I've ever made.

    Hi girls I'm looking at having surgery I've booked in app with obesity clinic in Adel. I just can't decide what way to go. Sleeve or band. How do I make the decision?

    Band is... Soo unpredictable monnie. Tbh it wouldnt even be a consideration ever. If it was my loved one asking me... Id not let them go the band.

    Totally agree; my DH had a sleeve 10th feb this year, lost 47kg, so much more energy. Was definitely the best decision for him.
    Best thing to do is just discuss options with the surgeon and ho from there

    I've been looking into this for my husband and have come to the conclusion that the sleeve is the better option.
    Eta-pink popsicle that's an awesome result. Dh has over 60kg of excess weight according to bmi.

    DH is expected to lose 90-100kg in total; I think he shocked himself at how big he actually was.

    Im really impressed hes done so well.

    Dh is 6ft3 and currently weighing just under 150kg. He got down to 115kg two years ago but the expense of the gym, trainer and food was over $500/fn. With two hours of cardio a day plus 3 1hr weights sessions a week he struggled to keep it off. We also had a tough couple of years which triggered emotional eating and loss of motivation.

    His main problem is poor food choices and portion sizes. His weakness is mainly sweets, which from reading, I understand can be curbed with the sleeve as the section resected is responsible for cravings? I may have interpreted it incorrectly. With the money we spent over 12 months we could've paid for GS.

    My mum had a bypass 7 years ago and lost 75kg and has kept it off.

    I wish your husband well with the rest of his weight loss journey.

    Eta-What is the recovery like? How much time would one expect to take off work?

    Nah they dont remove whats responsible for cravings they remove the thing that tells the brain you are hungry.

    Hunger feels different now. Hunger feels like an empty gurgle but it doesnt nag at you anymore.

    You detox big time in the pre and post op stage so essentially you dont crave stuff once its gone from your system. But im 3 years out and i got sick of eating high protein and i got pregnant and ate sweets and now its hard to get rid of.

    Its a tool but not an answer or a problem fixer. If there is emotional gratification to eating the wrong food, that doesn't go away. I lost 57 kilos and its been great but 3 years out and it feels like i never had it done. The wrong foods are called slider foods and you can eat heaps of them. So you can still consume more than you should. And gain weight. After being in such restricted calories for so long, your body adapts and 18 months to 2 yrs out if you havent lost the bulk of your weight then you wont get a huge amount further. How can you reduce even further when your body has adapted to 800 calories being your normal?

    The head needs to be fixed in my opinion.

    No regrets here tho.

    Thanks ZE. :thumbup:

    Eta-I've tried to get him to see a counsellor but he doesn't seem to think he has an issue. I've just made him an apt at an obesity clinic where counselling is mandatory. Hopefully he goes through with that part at least.
