Edward – Gastric Band surgery patient*
Edward is a Streamline Surgical gastric band patient who after years of failed diets and in order to minimise future health risks sort extra help.
“I had spent many years of dieting. I managed to lose weight but then I would put more back on. At the time, I was not suffering any health issues but felt that if I did not do something soon I would be at risk.
“Having lost over 37kgs, I feel I have got my active life back. I walk a lot more, go on a couple of ski trips every winter and continue to play cricket through the summer. I even sleep much better. I can now buy clothes off the peg without having to use specialist shops.
“The biggest changes in my life after gastric band surgery are being active again, no aching knees and eating sensibly. Losing 37kgs in four years and not putting any on are my proudest moments since having surgery.
“My experience has been first class! From the initial consultation, the surgery, through to the continuing support I received over the years, I could not have been treated better. The surgery was fitted in to my busy calendar and any follow up consultations have always been arranged at my convenience. All my expectations were exceeded. Nothing is ever too much for Streamline Surgical.”
“My new goals in life are to be active and play sport and ski until I’m 80…at least”
We asked Edward what advice he would give to anyone considering gastric band surgery:
‘If you are obese and you have tried everything and cannot keep your weight off…do it.’
