Sorry Jacqualine,

I have a friend who is being sleeved there beginning of June and know she would be interested to know too.

She is having the greek sounding doctor I cant remembr his name!

Good luck, think there may be a post in this topic somewhere about him already too :-)

I am having my sleeve done at Lake Macquarie by Dr Costa, I would be interested in your experiences, so please keep us updated. I am at the early steps on the rd., just having all the tests done

After reading all the posts on this site we are doing the right thing but it is a bit scary.

Veronic,

Dr Tim Wright from Newcastle Obesity Surgery at Charlestown does sleeves and bypass and bands at Lake Macquarie as well. He is doing my bypass there on 20th November. He has been my band surgeon for 5 years now. I have heard no bad things about either surgeon, and the hospital is unreal!.

Hi All,

I am booked in on Tuesday 6th November (Melbourne Cup) at Lake Macquarie Hospital with Dr Tim Wright. I had my pre-op appt last week their & all went well. The nurse was very informative & said there is a new wing which is purely for Bariatric patients. They have thicker more comfortable bed matteress & they are also wider to. She said that they also have a recliner / loungechair in the rooms as some patients prefer to sleep in the chair as they can be more comfortable when trying to sleep after the first couple of days after surgery. I will update after my op too :)

Hi Annieglassey,

I am booked into LMPH as well, but am having my op the day ofter Mel Newcastle, on the 7th Nov ( only 9 days and counting ).
My surgeon is Costa Karihaloo and he is located across the road from LMPH in the specialists centre. He is lovely and very easy to talk to.

Can't wait for the op....
