I considered weight loss surgery with Professor Senapati due to the fact that I was unhappy with myself I just wanted to gain back my confidence again.
Crying myself to sleep, refusing to go out with friends, sore knees, sweating, constantly using an inhaler, buying larger and larger sized clothes and not wanting to go on holiday for fear of the aeroplane seatbelt were many of the constant thoughts going on in my head.
Having been overweight for most of my adult life I think I had tried every diet out there and while I was successful in losing weight, each time I stopped dieting not only did I regain the weight I had lost I always gained more.
I had a Sleeve Gastrectomy 11th August 2018, my new life began the moment I woke up from Surgery. I had no issues at all in regards to trapped wind or pain. I had a bit of discomfort but that was about it. Professor Senapati and his team, Helen and Debbie and the others were amazing, they gave me support and advice whenever I needed it.
Dear Prof. Senapati, Thank you so much for the bariatric surgery (gastric sleeve) that you did for me on 23rd August 2018.
Prof Senapati and his team are truly wonderful. The patient care and understanding have been superb from start to finish. Everyone is incredibly professional, kind and it was a pleasure to have the treatment (Gastric Sleeve)
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!
