Subscribing as DD is on the waiting list for tonsils/addenoids. I saw the ENT privately but he has a public waiting list at 1 hospital not too far away and said the wait is usually around 6 months. I'd love to hear how you go and what worked/didn't. I haven't given it much thought as I figure it is at least 4 months off still, but I should be at the ready as I imagine I won't get a lot of warning once a spot becomes available.

Bumping this thread as DD has her date now (just under 2 weeks away!!). Did the suggestions work? Any other ideas? I'm also stressing about keeping her healthy pre-op since she's on yet another course of antibiotics for her tonsils right now.

Advice on DD's operation
I had surgery with my private surgeon last year but in a public hospital. We had to pay all costs up front and you can't claim anything back from Medicare until after the surgery. You don't get anything back on the hospital bed but you get some back for the anesatist and surgeon, can't remember what the percentages are though.

Advice on DD's operation
I'd love to know what the 'intermediate' costs were? Would most offer this service? The lists are huge. We were rejected from the mater because they wouldn't be able to see us within 12 months. I don't get how 'oh, we are required to see you within 12 months, but we wouldn't have any spots, so instead we will reject you' is the better option.
