I had my first appointment a couple of weeks ago with Dr George Hopkins and am booked in for my gastric sleeve surgery on the 25th February 2014. I am so excited to begin my new life but at the moment I am really worried that my application for early release of my super will not be accepted. I am applying for the full amount and just hope I have all the information needed. Please let me know how you have gone with applying for your super, if you have had the surgery and how you are going or if you are having the surgery, please share your thoughts with me. I was thinking of starting a blog but decided I would prefer to post my progress on here where others are or have gone through what I am doing. Has anyone had gastric sleeve performed by Dr Hopkins?
