Approaching one year anniversary for the surgery. Pre-Surgery weight was 270 Lbs.
using the conventional, contemporaneous methods of control including pills, drinks, hypnosis, excercise regimens, gym memberships etc.. The first several months post procedure, the weight fell dramatically @ 10-15 lbs per month for several months and then tapered off some as diet and general eating habits accomodated and adjusted to the Sleeve. Today's weight that has been maintained, essentially without effort, for the past 8 months is around 210 lbs or 95Kgs. Resulting in a to date consistently maintained net weight loss of approximately 60 lbs. or 27 kgs.

Criticism relates to the post operation phase and then limited to a crowding circumstance that led to some marginal hygenic exposures in the 24-48 hour post operative visits to remove tubing and redressing of the effected the surgical areas. This is a grave concern with potential severe consequences. However, this was nearly a year ago now and adjustments of this kind may be assumed to be corrected over time. The impression then was that the operation was to be moved to a new facility which may have remedied these issues.

The staff, from the orderlies to the physicians were excellent. They really put their "heart" into the service for the patient. This surgery was done alone and in confidence with no notification or advise to others unto this day and as result could be regarded as a great personal risk. Nevertheless, the treatment received from the Hospital and Staff was nothing short of a Visiting Dignitary. Professionalism was unparalleled.

This decision is regarded as a "LifeSaver" in that failing this election to proceed would have in all likelihood lead to much dire health consequences. Beyond the "fitting in clothing properly" and the general positive aspects associated with life at an acceptable or normal weight level, Blood Pressure, Colesterol levels and many other vital aspects have returned to normal levels without requisite medication. Those that find themselves in similar circumstances should find this Medical Tourism alternative as an exceptional, viable and very real consideration.
