Hi Kaela
nice to see a new newbie here as well. Just wondering when you are going to see your surgeon and how much research have you done
on the sleeve?

Hi everyone!

My name is Kaela, I am 21 years old, I am 165cm tall and I weigh in at 108kg. My heaviest weight was 115kg. I am booked in for gastric sleeve surgery on the 30th January. (NOT LONG!!! :)) I am so excited!!!

I have been overweight my whole life and have tried many diets and have failed and I am fed up! I feel like my weight keeps me down, I never want to do anything, I just want to stay at home and hide from the world.
Can't wait to live my life to the fullest!!!! SO MUCH EXCITEMENT :) 

I have having my surgery done by Dr. Victor Liew on the Gold coast. I have heard he is fantastic and he ALSO does not charge!!!! All my fees are being covered by my private medical, my out of pocket expenses will be less than $1000.
He believes it is wrong to charge extra as he would rather the patient spend it on supplements, personal trainer, equipment etc. He is such a lovely surgeon! I only enquired about it yesterday after getting a referral from my gp and I am ALREADY booked in after a phone call with surgeon Victor Liew!

Can't wait to share my journey with you all and see your journey as well!
