Prior to my gastric bypass surgery on the 23rd March 2019, my diabetes was almost uncontrollable. My daily blood sugar levels were between 9-12 and my HBa1C was 96, despite being on Metformin, canaglifozine, nova rapid insulin injections 3 times a day and levimire insulin at night. My insulin doses kept rising to try and help combat my high blood sugar levels. In the end I was on 32 mg of nova rapid 3 times a day and 58mg of levimire at night.
Prof. Senapati is my hero. He has changed my life so much and in so many different ways. I have tried multiple variations of diets from well-known names to unknown. At first I would lose weight but gradually I would gain again. I wish I would of had Prof. Senapati’s help years ago, because as of now he has helped me get my life back on track.
I am now nearly 8 months post surgery (gastric bypass) and have lost an incredible 7 stone. The bypass has completely changed my life for the better. I found out just before surgery that I had diabetes, but this is now been eradicated. I no longer have back pain or struggle for breath. Nothing is an effort anymore and I am continuing to lose weight every week.
I had my surgery 5 months ago. I have lost 6 st in weight and feel amazing. It has changed my life and my family’s life. I have not needed to use crutches since before Christmas and my mental health has improved 10 fold. My only regret is that I didn’t have this surgery sooner.
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 life has gone from strength to strength, as soon as I was able and with the words of Prof Senapati
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!
