Anyone from Canberra



Recommended Posts

Hey Pure Darkness,

I spoke with two ladies while I was waiting an hour to see Dr Mosse- one lady who was being sleeved in July sometime and another who was there with her grandson, she was sleeved 12 months ago and had lost 38kgs. The only other people I remember from the waiting room was a lady in her 20s maybe with an older lady with her (maybe her mum) and I think she had already been sleeved. What time were you girls there? ☺

There is a a private Facebook page for people from Canberra who have had their sleeve or who are having. It is a good support page - we meet once a month at someones home. People going are at all different stages in this journey. If you would like to join please friend me on Facebook - I am Maureen Tolley. I just need to introduce you to the group and need to know if you have had it or planning to have the operation.

Cheers

Maureen

Thanks!!

Hi! I am a Canberran who will be getting sleeved in the school holidays between term 1 and 2 this year (at this stage) in Wollongong. Means I can stay with my parents during recovery :)

Would love to be part of the FB group too...even though I wont be a Dr Mosse patient ;)

I'm in Qbn...

Sleeved by Dr Mosse in Feb last year...

Your best bet would be talking to whichever surgeon you're going with and seeing what they say...

They may be able to give you a date now...

I dunno how it works but I've no doubt they will...

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
