Inboxed u, yes I was annoyed , wasted money. He said I would get down to 70kg with a lapband and 65kg with sleeve and he wouldn't do it cause it's to risky for 5kg . 
Dolans assistant doc and dietician said I would prob end up around 50kg because that's what they've seen from people with my BMI .that would make me 21.6bmi .

Hi , I saw dr couch , my BMI is between 32- 33 with PCOS and I am the same height as u too, but he would not sleeve me.  I got into dr Kevin Dolan 2 weeks later and 5 weeks after my appointment with him I will be sleeved . Dr Dolan said he has never had a leak too.
Let me know how you go.
