    I was told from other bandits that is the safe way. Re 2 ops.

    On the Australian forum their is a whole section on people going from bands to sleeves.

    My mum said something to me today and I'm afraid she's right but I don't want to hear it. That I want the weight to just come off without any effort. Her friend's friend died from stomach cancer. That it was caused from being so morbidly obese. Apparently they couldn't find her cancer because of all her fat and she died before her first chemo treatment.

    I am worried about myself and worried that I will get cancer from being so overweight. I want to do it. But I can't stick to anything. Even if I didn't have my son my own self worth should be enough to want to lose weight.

    I think most people who get WLS do it because they have tried and failed at losing weight on their own

    Yes you're right (sorry!) I checked at work today. Also some surgeons request barium swallows and pre-sleeve exploratory surgery to decide if its going to be doable

    Would $103 per month be a reasonable amount for phi for weight loss surgery? No extras just got it purely to get through the 12 mth wait. It's with Latrobe valley health. I was told u have to have top cover to be covered for this surgery. $500 excess and they refund you any gap fee payment. Does that sound right?

    Actually have seen removal of band and then progress to sleeve in certain patients.
