Um I have met with four surgeons now.
Plus with research I have done online too plus comparing success/fails haha!!
I just think it's what I need for long term! I know that I'm bad with food. In saying that it is just a tool etc I've been practicing my no drinking and eating at same time haha!! It's so hard 😳

I'm in the process of trying to nail down a time to see my chosen gym/pt in the time I have off after surgery. Did you need a clearance certificate from your surgeon?

OK girls. Heres reality tip number 2. I believe this is VERY important because no one EVER told me this and its a very real and LONG lasting problem. (Im sorry im yelling!!! I just wanna emphasise!!)
Vomiting; in the first few months u want to avoid vomiting at all cost. So eat very slowly. The first sign of being full; NOT ONE MORE BITE! Your stomach will not stretch to accommodate that bite. It will pile up, like a lego tower. U will feel like u have food sitting in your chest; because you do! A cough. A cough will induce a gag. That gag will have u spewing. Dont do it!!!!!!!
Now vomiting also happens differently now. You know now when u puke theres lots of disgusting liquid that comes out?
Well. When ur eating lots of dense protein (which will be the bulk of your diet after post op healing etc) and you cannot drink while eating. If u need to spew, there is NO liquid that is helping that food get back out. Because u cant drink while eating. You will have to heave a whole lot more to get it up and if it gets stuck at your throat. Its a bit of a choking terrifying moment.
I would recommend asking your surgeon what to do in that situation should it occur. This far out if i know i am gonna spew i gulp a big bit of water and then its lubrication a plenty. But i dunno if that would be ok during the healing stage.
Im sorry if that all sounds scary but no one ever told me this! And i wasnt prepared

I know a few of you ladies are still around and I'm wondering if any went through the process of using their super for their surgery. We have enough savings at the moment but I'd rather we keep that aside 'just in case'. I have a decent amount in super that surgery wouldn't put much of a dent in.

I'm not sure on how much savings you are "allowed" to have for Centrelink to approve it.
There is a great FB group for sleevers, I can send you a link if you like. They are very knowledgable with all things super related... And sleeve related too haha.

Thank you @HearMeRoar How did your GP word the part about it needing to be life saving ie;you would die without the surgery? I've read that CL can be a bit picky depending on how it is worded. Dh has a BMI of 45, is considered pre-diabetic and suffers chronic back pain from the weight.
I've considered joining that group before, I think Sassy sent me the link at one point. I would feel lile an imposter though seeing as it's not me considering surgery.
