My story is no different then others, I think. I was struggling for years with diet and gym trying to lose weight. Mostly because I was trying to do IVF and I had to lose weight so it can be successful. I met Prof Senapati beginning of this year and he answered all my questions.
Just over a year ago I undertook bariatric surgery which has resulted in a significant weight loss.
I was so depressed at the beginning of my journey. The scales had crept to 15 stone. I knew something had to be done to help me. I struggled with losing weight for so many years due to health reasons and not being able to exercise. This was 4 months ago and it is honestly the best decision I have ever made. I am 3 stone lighter and am already feeling fantastic and much healthier. This has given me a whole new life and I now look forward to my future. I still have 3 stone to lose but I know I will get there soon and best of all keep the weight off. I couldn’t recommend this surgery anymore!
I have lost 6 stones in weight since I had gastric sleeve surgery in April 2017, and my health is so much better and I have more energy compared to before I had it done. My blood pressure and hba1c is back within normal range, and one of my medications has now been reduced. I also have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and my monthly cycle has finally returned after not having for quite a long time!
I had a gastric sleeve done in may 2017 by Professor Senapati. I cannot thank him enough! I am now 7 stones lighter and feel amazing.
I met with my GP early July 2016. I was feeling dizzy and generally unwell at this session my GP made it clear that although I had many attempts to lose weight if I don't do so I should expect a shortened life expectancy and also to have type two diabetes.
I have always been big despite undertaking classes in boxing and Muay Tai, however I struggled significantly with my weight whilst undertaking my Pharmacy degree and then working professional career. Being a healthcare professional I was and am aware of the long term consequence of obesity and the impact on ones quality of life in their later years.
Although anxious prior to my operation I must say how well and how easy my sleeve gastrectomy went. My only problem was that I woke up with a severe headache, which was sorted promptly. I’ve been amazed at just how my taste buds have changed for the better following my sleeve gastrectomy. I have lost modest amount of my excess weight, as I wanted to. Without doubt I eat healthier and 18months later I still feel that way.
I've struggled with my weight from childhood, and it seems as though most of my life has revolved around dieting. Before surgery I tried all different types of diets, but my willpower wouldn't last long and I was soon back to my old unhealthy eating habits . I tried diet pills, weight loss counselling and hypnotism only for them all to be unsuccessful.
On 6th February I had my Gastric Sleeve operation, I’d thought long and hard about it for many years and I’d watched all the TV programmes about weight loss and Gastric surgery.
