Hi Robert,

I discussed the issue of access to bariatric surgery under the Public Health system in NSW with my GP a number of times over the last 6 years or so.

It is my belief that there is currently no public list for bariatric surgery here, like exists - I believe - in Victoria.

I eventually accessed some retirement funds and paid for it myself on May 3rd, two weeks ago today.

If you find anything to the contrary please let us all know as I kept an eye out for years hoping I could go public but in the end I couldn't wait any longer,

Good Afternoon

I am new here and I am seeking advice on how I go about getting the Gastric Sleeve Surgery? I have been on a number of diets and meal replacement diets but they only to work until I am no longer following them. I continue to eat salads and grill chicken or fish but this does not stop the weight from going back up.

I am now using the Optifast replacement meals and this is slowly working. I am determined to make it work and I am feeling positive about it. I am unable to exercise at the moment because I have a severe back injury and I am waiting on surgery for my back. I am hoping that this will take place in the next six month. After which I am lead to believe that I will be able to exercise and this will help with the weight loss.

I would love to hear to from anyone who can point me in the direction of a doctor or clinic that will allow me to go through the public system. I am happy to wait for the surgery but I would like to start this process.

Thank You
Robert
