Naturally I have lost 2 stone. From the surgery I have lost 4stone 10lbs. My dress size was 22 and yesterday I bought a size 14.
Having this operation has been life changing for me, I have a whole new lease of life and feel like I have found myself again. My confidence has increased ten fold and everything in life is easier without carrying around the extra 8 stone. I now love to shop and have gone down from a size 18/20 to a 12.
Having made the decision to take control of my future, I searched online for information about weight loss surgery. I found Professor Senapati and his team based at BMI Cheadle and from the first contact with his secretary, they couldn’t have been more helpful or reassuring. After years of being embarrassed about my weight , the whole team were non judgmental and just positive about the way forward. Following pre-op consultations and tests, it was decided that a vertical sleeve gastrectomy was best for me, and my surgery was booked for mid April 2021.
Back in March I finally decided to bite the bullet and get my sleeve operation booked.
After many years battling with my weight an trying every diet/shake/pill/injection to help me loose weight I decided to have bariatric surgery.
Had my bypass on 28th July under Prof Senapati and the care and attention I received was second to none. The room was lovely, very comfortable and spacious.
My name is Rachel Binns and I had a gastric sleeve operation performed by Prof. Siba Senapati on January 8th 2021. As you can see from my photos I was extremely overweight and this has been something that I have struggled with all of my adult life. For me, the surgery was the best way forward and I have never been happier.
Thank you so much again for all the support and for changing my life!
Like so many people I have been held back by obesity for most of my life… I struggled through the difficulty of losing a small amount of weight, then to only regain it quickly plus more, again and again. I became depressed and my health began to suffer, my joints especially, as I got older. I had considered surgery for many years but with the extremely long waiting list, the costs for private care and the fact I had never been in hospital before and was scared for surgery, I never did anything about it until 2 years ago. I got a little inheritance and just decided enough was enough, it was now or never.
Since having a sleeve gastrectomy on 30th December 2019 my quality of life has increased tremendously.
