A Gastric Band Surgery Testimonial from L Donald
Gastric Band Surgery September 2013Due to a sporting injury I could no longer exercise to maintain a steady weight, so I attempted a bunch of diet plans unsuccessfully. I then purchased diet pills from the internet, again, unsuccessful in maintaining a healthy weight. The time had now come to look at the surgical option. After days and weeks of research I found the Gastric Band France website. More research followed to dispel any concerns I had and eventually made contact via email initially and received a call from Tullia in France. She fully explained the process from start to finish. There was no hard sell, the decision was mine alone and I felt totally at ease with the whole approach. Furthermore, I contacted someone who had previously had gastric band surgery a few months prior and they were most helpful and fully endorsed going to Le Harve. The cost for gastric banding surgery was more than half the UK cost which considering everyting which is included :-
- 4 star hotel for 2 people. (Client and Companion.)
- All operation costs and hospital stay.
- Taxi’s to and from your consultation pre-op and post-op.
- A visit to your hotel by the Consultant post op.

Gastric band Surgery testimonial from Wm. HowardHad surgery on the 11/September/2013 My weight was 119 kilos 18 stone 10 Pounds. I have been over weight from my teen’s, always about two stone overweight. Three years ago I gave up smoking for my health, as I am in my late sixties. Like many people this caused me to gain more weight as a result. I went on the usual diets, boring, and still gained weight over time until in the end I got to 18 Stone 18 Pounds weight. Just by chance I found the web site for the Gastric Band Surgery clinic in France. I got in touch with them and received a phone call from Tullia who got the ball rolling and organised the Hospital and the gastric band surgery for me. After only three short weeks since my operation I have lost four Kilos. As yet I have not had my first aftercare appointments which is not due until the end of October 2013, but I am pleased to say I have lost four kilos, which is better than gaining four kilos. Thanks to every one’s help at the Hospital and to Tullia for organising everything . William (bill) Howard *“Results are not guaranteed and will vary from person to person”
l have to date lost 32 kgs.l have dropped 4 dress sizes and look amazing. My confidence has gained, and look forward to next years holiday where l aim to be even slimmer. When I went on holiday this year l wore clothes that l would not have worn before the operation. My eating habits have changed dramatically as i now eat more healthier and feel a lot better for this. Having the Surgery in Le Havre was a challenge in itself and I would like to thank Dr Bernard B. and his staff for my new life, which is overwhelming, and thanks to Tullia for her support throughout. If anyone is thinking about this operation for themselves, then, I personally give a high recommendation. kind regards Lisa Brown (Mrs) To read the initial Testimonial which Lisa sent to us shortly after her operation please Click HERE to read it. *Note:- “Results will vary from person to person”
Well, I spent over £1,600 and lost only 14 lbs!It did nothing for me, like all the other diets I have tried, and l really wanted to believe in it,. Many other women are waiting for a miracle: Well, l have just had my Miracle ! l must have read every story on You Tube, watching all the interviews, and I knew this was my time – So I went into “google” and put in a search for “gastric band surgery” and there were loads of results. One stood out to me which was just across the water in France , and I knew that France have some of the best Doctors and Hospitals in Europe, and the price sounded great, so I filled in the inquiry form on the website and emailed it off!… The next morning, while checking my mail, there was a reply – a very nice reply, and some details for me to go over and check the doctor out, the hospital, and even the hotel, all of which l did. I was very pleased and just needed to tell my partner Chris. I knew he wouldn’t be happy and not want me to go though with it. So that evening I sat with Chris and explained everything, showing him all the bits of footage that l had put on my desktop and from YouTube, plus all the paperwork that I had been sent by email from France. I explained to Chris how unhappy l was with myself and had been for many years, and if I did not do this now, I would be still moaning in twelve months time and regretting it . The Next day Tullia, from Laser Clinics (France) Ltd rang me giving me more detailed information and filling in more areas of concern that I had, and answered further questions as we discussed further aspects of the operation. It all appeared too good to be true. Tullia phoned me and then emailed me a choice of dates, which were in August, the end in fact, just before the bank holiday. I was so excited. l paid my deposit and l had decided to have the travel package which was being offered, so my total charges would be £3200.00, which l thought was fantastic. The months of June and half of July passed. Tullia gave me a follow up call just to remind me to pay the remaining balance, of which l did within 2 hours ….that’s it l thought, no turning back now… Just out of the blue l thought l would give one of the testimonials a call and her name was Gabriel – Gabby for short – we had a great chat and she told me how she had lost 7 a stone since October and how wonderful the service had been etc – I felt a thousand dollars and I couldn’t wait! I wanted to go now …not in 3 weeks …… Tuesday the 20th August arrived and l would be there tomorrow – my flight was 6.45 am on Wednesday the 21st August. l left home at 3.30am, drove myself to Liverpool airport, parked the car and off l went. I had never flown on my own before, butterflies in my tummy, but very calm, and the flight was on time. Within an hour, I was off the plane, through customs, and for one split minute l thought …no body will be there! WRONG… they were waiting, card in hand, with my name in BIG letters, l think l split my mouth smiling so much. The guy took my bag and showed me to the people carrier, off we went ..the sun belting down on the beautiful green countryside, I could not believe that this was Paris .. There was another lady passenger who was French, so friendly, so pleasant and when we stopped for a break, we sat and drank coffee. She was lovely and she gave me her email address, but l lost it, and I was so upset, as l would have liked to have kept in contact with her. When we stopped, we also picked up another English girl who was with her father and she was also having a gastric band operation. She had come from Manchester and missed us at the airport for whatever reason – but straight away assistance was at hand. Arrived!! Well what a beautiful hotel, very modern, and as you walked in, you were welcomed by very warm and friendly staff. The receptionist couldn’t do enough for us, she was fully aware of who we were and had all the information from Tullia, and said that our taxis would be with us by two o’clock. l got my key and went up stairs just to drop my case off and wash my face …….l walked into my room …WOW it was great, there was a huge bed, so clean and I was over the moon – better than l had expected …… Phone rang TAXI HERE !! Off l went to this huge hospital. l was so glad that l had taken the chauffeur package, l didn’t have to do a thing it was all in place. I got there and went through to reception, stated my name and they told me where to go – it was very easy and proceeded down the corridor to a waiting area, I gave them my name, and within minutes l was in the room with doctor B ….. He weighed me, took my height, sat me down and went through all the procedures. There was no turning back for me, we shook hands, and he said see you tomorrow with a very welcoming smile. l had nothing to fear or worry about at anytime. Next was the anesthetist and again a great guy who spoke of what would happen during the next day and reassured me that there was nothing to worry about. We then spoke about England, had a laugh, shook hands and both said ‘see you tomorrow’. Next port of call was with the nurses who were going to carry out my blood test…again so pleasant, so helpful, and all other tests were carried out including my heart monitor, and other remaining questions were answered.. I walked back to the front of the building down to where the taxi dropped me off and there waiting was the taxi to return me to the hotel . l spent the rest of the evening in my room and the following day was a day of leisure, which l spent going round window shopping, down to the beach and just relaxing. I spent the evening in my room again and had a nice evening meal – an omelette, salad and fries with ice cream to follow …wonderful ! Off to bed ,up at 6 o’clock as I had to be at hospital for 6.45am. Couldn’t sleep and phoned home very excited ….this is it, my next chapter of my life and the best one l have made – should have done this years ago …… Phone rings ..wake up call …showered and went down stairs to wait for taxi, the guy at the desk smiled ‘hi the taxi will be here any minute’ and he arrived and away we went. Holly ( (who was also having surgery) was sat in the taxi behind me, and when we arrived at the hospital he dropped us both off, we walked through to the ward where l had been given instructions to go and Holly followed. The nurses were expecting us, and showed me to my room. The nurse asked me to sit down and said that someone would arrive shortly. A tall smiley nurse came into the room and asked me to remove my nail polish (something for you girls to remember) DON’T WEAR NAIL POLISH!…. l removed the polish and then she gave me a bottle of brown liquid and asked me to shower and use it to wash with. Afterwards, I put on the gown and returned back to my room … gosh my tummy was now turning upside down …! I had my shower and returned to my bed. Within minutes, two guys came through and took me to theater. This is it l thought, it’s going to happen – I’m not dreaming, I’m really here, I’m really going to be thin for Christmas and I am so looking forward to it .. Off we went, l didn’t say much, got down to the waiting area, the porter could speak good English as he had lived in England for a few years and went back regularly. He asked if l was ok and I chatted away as the doors opened into the theatre – the surgeons were all there, my tummy was making noises and doctor B came over and said ‘ are you ready and ok?’ Yes let’s do it. A drip was put in the back of my hand, my feet and my calfs were bandaged up. The anesthetist was behind him chatting with me and he asked if l was ok as it was time. He held my hand as he knew that l was rather scared and he told me to start counting – I could feel the anesthetic flowing into the drip at the back of my hand … the next thing l remember was being awake in my bedroom … I felt very tried and if l had been kicked by a horse. The next 12 hours came and went, of which I slept for most of them and the nursing staff were fantastic, they kept me topped up with my pain relief treatment, my fluid in my drip, checked my blood pressure, temperature and well being… Morning soon came, Doctor B came round and did his checks, looked me over and spoke with me. He said that he would come to the hotel the next morning to give me my injection to stop any blood clotting and also to check my wound. He asked me to go down to X-ray and afterwards it would be ok to go back to the hotel . A porter collected me and took me to the X-ray dept, to ensure that the gastric band was in the right position. The X-rays were given to me in order to take back to the ward . When l got back to the ward, the Doctor came back, and had a look at the X-rays and gave them back to me, along with my first ‘fill needle’ and said l would need to take them with me on the first ‘fill’ which Tullia would give me the name of the doctor who l should contact when l got home. I was now ready to go to the hotel and the hospital staff ordered a taxi. The doctor would see me tomorrow. I got dressed, thanked everyone and made my way to where the taxi picked us up two days earlier and within ten minutes the taxi arrived. Back at the hotel, the staff at the desk asked if l was ok and if l needed anything just to call down. Got to my room undressed and got into bed ….. Hours passed . I woke to the sound of the phone ringing it was Tullia just asking if l was ok and if there was anything she could do. She had ordered some soup and yogurt for my tea and advised me to try and eat some, but to take it easy. I said goodbye and returned to bed. I wanted to sleep as much as possible, l had always been told that you heal while you are asleep…… Woke up, took a shower – still felt like a horse had kicked me , but what else could l expect ?? .. I had just had gastric band surgery !!! Knock at the door, it was my dinner which Tullia had kindly ordered for me – The soup was yummy and so was the yogurt. But I could only eat a few mouthfuls. Again the phone rang, it was Tullia just checking that all was OK and reminding me that Doctor B would be there at 9am in the morning. We said goodnight and l returned to bed . I woke up at 8am, had a shower and was a bit nervous about Doctor B coming and giving me injections and also the fact that I had to inject myself when I got home – but he was great and I felt easier about what I had to do. A knock came at the door, and he arrived on the dot – ‘ morning how are you?….Sore l replied …’You will be’ he replied as he got the injections out. l told him that I was worried about the injections. He reassured me that all would be fine and he held some of my stomach flesh in his hand and before l knew it, the injection was done! I didn’t even feel it. We spoke about being careful of what I should eat and what happens if anything got stuck etc. We shook hands and l thanked him for changing my life, we both smiled and said goodbye. Tuilla rang about 30 minutes later to tell me that the taxi would pick me up at 12 noon for the airport.

This is Jessica’s Gastric Sleeve story.
Having been big for as long as I can remember, and having tried, every diet that has ever been invented, I’ve managed to lose some weight but have never been able to sustain it for more then a couple of years, with it slowly going back on, and then some.
I’ve always been tempted to have weight loss surgery, but was scared of the dangers of having the operations, but over the years these operations have got more successful and safer.
Then about a year ago having suffered bad knees for the last couple of years or so, plus aches and pains in my back I decided it was time to visit my doctor, something that I’d been putting off for a long time, as anyone who is over weight dreads doing, because we all know that no matter what is wrong, our weight will be the issue.
So taking the plunge with my husband in tow, we were ready for battle, and to my surprise we saw a new doctor who was more then sympathetic, she suggested that I join a weight Loss Programme with the intention of having weight loss surgery, rather then sending me home with a diet sheet.
I walked out of her surgery with more hope then I’ve ever had before, and within 3 weeks I had joined the group and was led to believe that I could be having gastric surgery within a year.
My husband knew how depressed I was feeling, and was looking on the Internet about weight loss operations privately in the UK, and to try and think how we could afford one.
Then happened to notice one advertised in France and couldn’t believe the price they were offering to do it for, and we could actually afford it, so I completed a contact form, and within 24 hours I had a phone call from a lady called Tullia Law in France.
Tullia asked few vital questions to make sure I qualified, and told me she had a special offer on weight loss surgery, and had a free date 7 weeks later, we said we would think about this because she wanted the money up front, and were a little skeptical, but after doing some research found Tullia Law to be genuine.
Next day, as promised, I received all the info via e-mail, including the name of my intended surgeon, after checking him out we were very impressed.
We rang the NHS at Derriford Hospital to ask how long I might have to wait for bariatric operation, and was told it would be at least one year, so I decided there and then to go ahead with Tullia.
Tullia was amazing, she organized the whole package perfectly for us, and we organized our own travel arrangements.
On arriving in France the hotel was expecting us, all the taxi’s to and from the hospital, which Tullia had arranged, went without a hitch.
My original plan was to have a gastric by-pass but the surgeon advised me because of my previous operation for gall stones, plus my size, that a gastric by-pass might not be possible and he may have to do a sleeve gastrectomy instead.
As it turned out this was a sleeve which he did and I’m more then happy with the result, with gastric sleeve operations you suffer none of the side effects of by-pass surgery and all is going extremely well.
I had the operation on the 17th July as planned, all the nurses and doctors where wonderful.
So far I have lost 1st 9 lbs in just over 3 weeks, with no nasty side effects.*“Results are not guaranteed and will vary from person to person“
