PostSubject: How will I get through the next 51 weeks?   Tue 14 Sep 2010, 11:29 am

First topic message reminder :

Hi guys,

I have only JUST taken out PHI last week and it's driving me nuts, knowing that I can't have my sleeve surgery for 12 months.

Are there a lot of you that had to wait this long? How did you cope?

I am going to try Tony Ferguson (again) in the meantime, but every time I try, I don't end up sticking to it.

Woe is me lol

Thanks lovely xx

Kel congrats!! It will go super fast! What I did was try not to think about it too much until around the 6 month mark and then when I had 5 months left, I started with all the pre op visits etc.

Where in Melbourne are you Kel and have you decided on what surgeon you're going with?

What a fabulous thread! I just took out my PHI. 364 days to go, lol! This thread is such a good idea. I need to wait the 12m for 2 reasons - firstly, I think it'd be good to have in case of any complications and secondly, the kids dad is about to start a new job, and won't have enough leave accrued to take to care for the kids post op for a while yet. So, it makes sense. I'm as impatient as others though. Seeing the amazing results in this forum is beyond inspiring, just amazing.

Nearly there lovely!!!

Well I am now officially SLEEVED!!! I am so gutless haha

It still feels so surreal ... but I'm now 4 days out and feeling pretty good. If you want to read my long winded op journey, check out my diary link below this post :)

Thanks everyone for being so supportive of myself and all the others in here that are having to wait so long for their PHI xx

Hi all,

Well I got the confirmation back from Australian Unity and I had misread the paperwork that came through and I am definitely covered for the sleeve after 12 months......how exciting, so all paperwork is done, now its time to talk to the surgeon and do loads more research on here I guess......
Jamie good luck for the 19th I am very interested to follow your jounrney......

Opti sucks, I can't wait to just have normal stuff again lol. You are doing well, ahhh wish I was on day 13 lol.

Dinner tonight is going to be a bunch of allowed stir fried vegies and a splash of Oyster Sauce ... I need something with some taste!

Yep bell, 11 days OMG lol

Cyclone I hope all went well last night!

I think I'm getting used to Opti now or should I say I'm getting used to that very empty hungry feeling lol. Day 4 and I haven't cheated ... the only thing stopping me from having a sausage last night when I was cooking dinner for my family, was the thought of my surgeon going to operate on me and realising that my liver is too fatty and has to stitch me up and send me home with no sleeve lol.
