    Booked in with Dr Hopkins, Holy Spirit Hospital 29th June. Looking forward to the next chapter in my life and a new me!
    Well after nearly three of the gastric sleeve and then starting to gain weight even after going to the gym five days a week.
    In January of this year I opted to have the by pass and find the after effects very different to the sleeve.
    But happy to say in the space of 6 weeks I have lost nearly 9kg.
    So my target weight of 70kg is looking a lot better.

    I had Dr George Hopkins do my surgery on 26th June 2011, he is a wonderful man and very good. I had this procedure done at the Holy Spirit Hospital, Chermside.

    Hi Nikkita,I am looking in to the sleeve..I had the lap-band back in 2007 by DR layani and Intiially lost 54kgs in the first 7 months! but unfortunately I have gain a lot of that weight back on..due to sabotaging the band..also the down side of the band is the puking,food getting stuck and depravation of food has all contributed to the band not working for me.I am at my wits end and scared this is it for me! I am hopping to get in to see DR Layani and ask about the sleeve and why that was never offerd aswel as the band..I hope that you can tell me a bit of your story and how the sleeve is going for you! cheers

    Hi there
    I had spoken to a lot of friends at work that had the lap band and they all informed me of the problems they are having or had in the past and the fact they have cheated and put on weight. I wanted something that I wasn't able to cheat with and didn't have to spend so much time going for follow up appts. When I first went for my appt I knew really what I wanted and it was the sleeve, the Dr agreed with me about the down falls of the lap band. He has completed so many of these and hasn't had any problems. I have lost 8kg in the 2and half weeks of having my sleeve and feel great. I have my follow up appt with the dietician Weds so I will keep you posted on that one. I hope all goes well with you and with what you decide.

    Hi Grover,I had the lapband done by Dr Layani back in 2007 and lost 54kgs in 7 months but have now put almost all of it back on and have never really been happy with the band.I am waiting back for Dr Layani's office to make a date to go see him about having this band out and the sleeve done.How long since you had the sleeve done and how have you found it.I just want to find out as muh as I can and hear lots of stories as back when i was looking at having the lapband done every one was praising it and now 4 yrs on I'm so over this band..

    One thing I learnt is at the beginning of your weight loss - don't buy expensive clothing as your weight loss changes quickly and you need to buy another pair!!! But I am sure you will look great.
