I am about to start my sleeve journey, I have my referral from my GP and am waiting for OClinic to reopen after Xmas on 11 January so I can make my appointment with Dr Craig Taylor.
I will be self-funding through superannuation.
I live approx 4hrs by car away from Sydney and I have heard that Dr Taylor will want me to stay in Sydney for 2weeks post op, in case of any complications.
I have struggled with my weight for about 15 years, I had post natal depression after my 2nd child and went onto medication and my weight just kept piling on. It's not just the medication, I became a comfort eater and made really bad food choices.
I am sick of hating my appearance, sick of being embarrassed about how I look, sick of not being able to buy nice clothes, sick of watching everyone else swim, sick of waking up with a sore back, sick of feeling unattractive for my husband, generally just sick of myself!
So 2016 is going to be my year of taking back my life!
