Gastric Bypass Surgery in France
Date of Surgery 10th December 2014
Hi, my name is Kendyl. I am 16 years old and I live in England.
I have struggled with my weight since I was very young. I have tried dieting and everything known to try to lose weight, yet nothing was happening. I used to comfort eat a lot due to bullying about my weight until I reached my biggest weight of 131kg.
This is when I realised it had to stop.
I searched online for weight loss surgery as a close family member had also had it done. I realised that due to my age I could not get the surgery I needed in the UK until I was 18. In my eyes this meant I would have to wait 2 more years to just get bigger and bigger.
This is when I came across a hospital in France that would happily perform the surgery for me.
Within 3 days of the gastric bypass surgery I was heading home to England.
In Just 3 Weeks (30th December 2014) I have already lost 9kg. I am already noticing the difference in my face and my shoulders. I am looking forward to seeing the progress continue as I gain my confidence back.
