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

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?

So she tricked me? She said Weight loss surgery made the cover go to top?

I'm with medibank top hospital cover and all I had yo pay was my gap which was $250. But they only covered about $600 of my surgery costs from my surgeon and anaesthesiologist. My total out of pocket expenses was about $6000.
But in saying that it was the best $6000 I've ever spent!!!!!!!

I feel like there could be cheaper cover out there. I've got 27 days to find it. She did say that I'd be refunded whatever the cost of the surgeon was over the Medicare threshold but couldn't tell me what it was.
