PostSubject: Dr Ticked Acute/Chronic pain instead of Life Threatening. What should I do.   Fri 14 Oct 2016, 3:21 am

Hi All,

I've finally trying to go ahead with accessing super to pay for my wls having gone through all the tests requested by my surgeon.  My question is: My surgeon has filled in the forms stating I have a life threatening condition, but my GP has ticked chronic pain, as she does not think a BMI of 37, with comorbidities (hypertension and high cholesterol) is life threatening (go figure) yet these are the conditions she has written to support chronic pain???  Should I put in the two forms, or should I got to another GP and hope they select life threatening, very disappointed, as I thought she was pro-surgery. I'm afraid that having two contradictory forms stating the same co-morbidities will work against me  Confused

Any advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks
