    Thanks Mini. I've been talking to his coordinator, who has been very helpful. My reservation with Dr Draper is the cost -- an extra $5k gap is significant. If they are very good, it's worth it of course.

    They quoted me that too. But it didn't end up costing that much. I think they prepare you for the worse.

    Hi Pip, Good to know as i have to have exactly the same thing done. Band removed and then the sleeve. My only hold up is $$$$. I was told about $3000 to get the band removed then $7000 for the sleeve. Does that sound about right?
    I have been having problems with the band after 8years and now it has almost no fluid in it anyway so its not helping with my weight but it is still stopping me from eating good things like lots of salads and apples and such.

    Thanks for sharing that news

    Hi sugasweetpurple, I just had the sleeve almost a month ago on the Gold Coast. Surgeon's gap $3,000, Anaesthetist $500, Hospital Gap $500 plus pathology and X-rays approx $800. Hope that helps. I read some other posts on another forum that Bunbury had some surgeons that were less than that.. Im not sure what the revision will add to the mix.
    All the best in whatever you decide.
