I began my journey in July 2021 and had a sleeve gastrectomy in early September 2021. In a little over 6 months, I had lost 50kg!
I followed all the advice given while catching up with both Patrick & Merril at the recommended intervals.
I chose to have my surgery with NEWLS because I found Patrick was patient, honest and professional.
Patrick has never rushed through an appointment. He always takes the time to educate and explain everything in detail. He discusses all options, answers any questions that may arise and importantly, he never made me feel pressured into proceeding with the surgery.
Many things went through my mind prior to making my inquiry.
My two main concerns were permanency and my age. I questioned if I was too young and I was worried to have a procedure that couldn't be reversed.
However, once I finally had the courage to book my initial consultation, I raised my concerns with Patrick who was quick to provide reassurance and put my mind at ease.
Having weight loss surgery was the best decision I've made and it's changed my life for the better.
For those who are unsure, speak with others around you. Discuss your thoughts and options with friends, family, previous patients, etc.
Write yourself a list with all of the pros and cons of weight loss surgery and I'm sure you'll find the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
