Gastric Band Surgery Date 17th April 2013
For about 20 yrs now I have struggled with my weight and over the last year I have put on even more weight. About 2 yrs ago I was about 17 stone and by March 2013 I went up to 19 stone as I am now a wagon driver.
I’ve tried most diets going, and I could not stick to them as many people cant, they are hard as you all may know.
I had heard of a gastric band and thought what the hell, I want to lose weight and be a lot slimmer like I used to be when I was in my 20’s. In Those days I looked good, felt good and was never out of breath not like I am now.
I searched on the internet for gastric band and French Cosmetic Surgery came up as well as others. I compared the prices and saw that its cheaper in France then anywhere else.
I phoned up the number from the Website and spoke to a Lady who seemed very nice. I told her about myself and what I do for a living. After a few conversations, in which she called me each time, I ended up paying
her around £3000 to Book my gastric band surgery date. Yes I was a little worried as I have never done this before. However the Lady phoned me back to confirm everything.
I booked ferry ticket to Le Harvre and arrived on the 14th april 2013. I was little apprehensive as I went to the hotel and asked at reception if there was a reservation in my name, (I thought if it wasnt then I would have beed duped), but yes, there was a room in my name.
The lady called me at the hotel to see if I had arrived there OK and to explain what would happen over the next few days, and basically it all happened as she said it would.
I went to the hospital where I met the gastric band surgeon who was very nice and spoke better English then me. My stay in hospital was on wednesday 17th April and the operation done early that morning the Dr’s and Nurses were all fantastic people, very polite and considerate and really did look after me. After the gastric Band Surgery Operation I went back to the Hotel mid afternoon on the 18th, where again all the hotel staff were fantastic. I rested there and Friday I caught the Ferry back home.
The lady I am talking about is called TULLIA, who really did sort things out for me. She is lovely speaking
and caring and will always phone you and make sure things are ok.
I will add some pictures as soon as I can, I dont look 19 stone but I can assure you that I was. At the moment I am now 18 stone so in 2 weeks I have lost a Stone in Weight. I can feel it and see it in me. I am ashamed to have to buy 42 inch waist trousers now and I need to try to go down to 34 or 36 inch waists. No More 3XL shirts and jumpers for me !! I am going to do this for myself and my health. LOL
TULLIA, many thanks, and I’ll be in touch soon.
Lots of love
PS. If you are in England and are reading this and would like to talk to me on my mobile Phone I will be more than happy to talk about my GASTRIC BAND in France.
