    How did you all adjust how you cooked meals at home? I can imagine that would change? How would you decrease how much you cooked?

    I still cook as per usual I just have a smaller serve on mine. I don't use a big plate... Just a bread and butter plate. I have mostly the protein bit... A tiny bit of veg and occasionally I will have a bit of carb too if we have that. Depends how I'm feeling. Early on I wouldn't have the carbs or even the veg really cos I needed the space for the protein.

    I just use leftovers for my work lunches usually so I still cook the same amount unless its things like sausages or steak where I can choose per item... I just freeze the ones we won't use.

    Thanks :-) I saw him 5x today. He's in a ward at the hospital I work at. He's a bit down and headachey but they didn't put his cpap on. So thankful for such a great surgeon and anaesthetist and my awesome colleagues who've looked after him so well

    I have tried to lose weight through diet and exercise but it just hasn't worked me so I then thought about surgery but I think I might try some non-surgical procedures first to see if they have any effect. I found this this Brisbane cosmetic clinic that does non-surgical stuff like fat freezing. Have any of you ever tried that? Does it last? I worry that they just take the "after" picture one day later when it looks good but then in a month or two you're back to normal...

    I saw something on that on TV a while ago, it was some sort of doco thing like Louis Theroux (though I don't think it was actually him, but LIKE his stuff anyway)... they were saying it's mostly for people who have like, only a few kg to get rid of. Skinny people, with a tiny bit of belly flab or something. And yeah, it comes back if you don't change your diet and exercise plans dramatically anyway.

    Hi all

    Sorry if this has already been asked but cam anyone tell me the rough cost out of pocket for gastric bypass or sleeve? Besides my health insurance payment each month would the cost of the surgery be the only cost I'd be paying? Or would I also be paying daily costs of the room/bed? Each day I'm there? Do u get back money from ur phi for the surgery?

    I got put on the public waiting list but it's 3 yrs wait!!! And the surgeon told me that because I need my band out first that I'd be better off getting a gastric bypass because I'd then have to wait again for the sleeve. I'm 35 and I don't think I can leave my health like this anymore. I want more kids and it's difficult as it is. 3.3yrs and still not pregnant again. I'm thinking I should decide now cause I have to wait one year anyways.

    Please help with advice on what to do.

    My surgery was quite a few years ago. It cost 6600 out of pocket with some of that back at the end of year in tax.

    The cost varies from surgeon to surgeon. Bigger cities are cheaper than rural.

    Phi varies on what level of cover and even if they cover it all.

    You can access your super via APRA to pay for it.


    I would check out the gastric sleeve support forum as they would have more up to date info.

    DH just had his sleeve 2.5wks ago. Think the total oop is $5k. I'd seek out a bariatric surgeon who may be able to remove band and do sleeve in one op. Good luck
