So it looks like I won't be going through the surgeon in Wollongong but will be sleeving with Dr Mosse too! I went for my surgical consultation with him last week and have my dietician appt at the end of next week but have been told I can book in my surgery date whenever I am ready...its becoming pretty real now!!

I am also in Canberra and went to the the info session at Canberra Bariatric on 24th October. I will be meeting with Dr Mosse on 8th December.

Has anyone here accessed their super to fund the surgery?

Chew ice...

It helps with the need to chew and it also helps with your hydration...

I'm from Canberra too! I'm getting a sleeve done with Dr Mosse on the 26th of June. Just going about my business at the moment drinking Optifast shakes, Water and eating lovely stir fried vegetables and salads.

A question though: I take a women's Multivitamin every day at the moment. I can't remember whether I needed to take an extra Calcium tablet now as well as post-op?

(I know it was a chewable brand I'm meant to grab, but just not sure when I'm meant to start).

Extra calcium will be post-op as you can't get enough through food then. (Probably a couple of weeks after.) You're already getting extra now through Optifast.

My time is NOW!

I know this is an old thread, but I'm interested in chatting with people in Canberra. I'm having gastric bypass surgery in Washington DC in February 2019, and I will be moving to Canberra on a long-term basis in September 2019. I would love to participate in a local support group (if one exists) and I would also like recommendations on a doctor for my follow-up appointments in Canberra.
