  1. I had an ESG in Oct 2018, at first it seemed fine, then I stopped feeling restriction put weigh back on, an endoscopy in Feb this year showed that most of the sutures had come undone or loosened. I had a sleeve done in March. Almost at goal weight now. An ESG leaves a stomach that is larger than a surgical sleeve and the expected average weight loss is lower than the surgical options. I chose the ESG initially because it was non-surgical, less invasive, reduced recovery time but I wish I had gone with the VSG in the first instance. I would have saved a lot of time and a lot of mon
  2. Given that it is photo-shopped it is difficult to know if the look can be replicated by fillers.
  3. That's great, well done! Sounds like the wallet will be in for a beating with all your new clothes
  4. It sounds like you need to put some financial distance between you and your parents as soon as you can. Paying off the loan with your parents as soon as possible would go a long way into establishing financial distance. I don't know the situation with the renting from your parents, but if it's at a reduced rate because you are their daughter they will always have (and attempt to exert) perceived financial control over you. I imagine your father would have had the same reaction if instead of the cosmetic surgery you were intending to go on a luxury overseas holiday or were wanting to bu
  5. I remember your original posts. It is wonderful that you sought help and even more wonderful that it has helped you. I hope your book writing goes well, it is good that you can share your story. I am pleased you didn't have unnecessary surgery on your face because of spiteful and hurtful words from internet strangers. You actually have a lovely face with a great smile. Keep up the great work!
  6. Is that even legal? Illness or injury in the context of personal leave isn't what people think it is. If you are unable to work due to having elective surgery you are entitled to personal leave. I had eyelid surgery, entirely elective, I had one week personal leave (could have been two I can't remember). If your surgery was fairly recent I would be contacting fairwork australia or your union to ensure the annual leave is reversed and personal leave used.

  7. People come and go from forums all the time, life and other activities take over, they have over things to do. Can't presume/assume anything, particularly can't assume that Shellymee moved on and didn't post photos because something bad happened in surgery or with the surgery results. And I certainly wouldn't be reluctant to progress my own surgery because someone doesn't post on a forum anymore or didn't post photos.
  8. What does your doctor think it is? ycreams you have tried are they over the counter or prescribed by your doctor?
  9. Hi You may get more of a response if you ask for information about a particular surgeon(s) rather than a clinic. You may also find some information from the reviews tab on the top of the page, its the fifth tab along.
  10. If you search for Lanzer in the search box on the top right hand side, you will find all the posts where Lanzer is mentioned.
  11. Hi Mel, thanks for responding. You are brave to come out with your story, particularly knowing what some people (including the likes of me) would likely say or question. It's clear from your outcome (and others) that the surgeon had no ethics nor the skill to do your surgery. It's great that you made recovery from the bad outcome and have moved on from it.
  12. From the article copies it is apparent there are issues around Dr Mooney's surgeries/actions, but I don't understand why anyone go would through surgery without properly consulting with the doctor/specialist at all?
  13. I assume you are responding to Diana..but you did get me thinking. I have good health insurance which includes weight loss procedures and while I pefer a non surgical approach for weight loss (the ESG not covered by medicare or health insurance), if my preferred surgeon recommends one of the surgical approaches as the best option for me I will probably opt for the recommendation, and I will finally get some use of my health insurance. Good luck with your application! Sounds like you are going for it at the right time. The government review on early release of super on compass
  14. SIPS bypass looks interesting, I hope it goes well for you. The drawcard for the ESG was the fact it is non-surgical and only a day visit to the hospital (though some surgeons prefer to keep you in overnight).
