I’ve been overweight since I was 9 yrs old. My weight crept up and up with each year that passed until in 2014 I was over 24 stone or 144.6kg. I had no quality of life I could barely get up and down a flight of stairs without becoming breathless. Buying clothes and underwear was a complete nightmare that I tried to avoid at all costs.
I would just like to say I had my operation on 25th February 2017 and my whole experience was amazing from Prof Senapati and his team they could not do enough for me.
My name is Wendy Minshull my weight loss journey started on 6/1/16 where I was placed on the 3 tier system for bariatric surgery, It was recommended I lost some weight and attempted to do exercise for mobility purposes when my operation date came I was surprised to learn with the help of Salford Royal dieticians I had lost 3 stone.
My story starts the same as everybody else’s, I’m very very overweight. It started young and in my adolescence I had to work out 7 days per week just to maintain a good weight.
This was my life pre surgery which was 30/07/16. I was topping the scales at 30 stones. I lived on my bed, totally reliant on everyone for food, bathing and toileting. I only left the house for hospital appointments. My doctors appointments were done over the phone. I honestly thought I was going to die on my bed. I'm now currently 15 stones. I've just re applied for my old job as a bus driver yesterday.
I’m a Bariatric Surgery Patient. I had a mini Gastric Bypass performed back in July 2016 and can honestly say – It’s the best thing I could have done for my health since I gave up smoking back in 2000!
