Tony Singer, USA
Sleeve Gastrectomy

I am Tony Singer from USA and I came for my sleeve gastrectomy in India through Forerunners Healthcare Consultants. I have been obese all my adult life. I do have health problems but mainly I over eat. I had a very uneasy relationship with food always viewing it as an enemy that I had not bested in thirty years. I had thought about surgery to help with my obesity at odd times over the past few years but never gone any further than that. India is having a vast resource of excellent surgeons and medical professionals with the best and the world class medical facilities for lap band surgery in India. India has excellent hygiene norms with the best patient and doctor ratio.



 

 

I had an appointment with the specialist after having a series of test, with his recommendation I decided to undergo sleeve gastrectomy. Once this decision had been made I set about changing my diet immediately and gradually the procedure starts to go in a direction, for the first time I really thought that this is going to work. I read widely on the internet to settle on the exact procedure I felt I should go for and after talking to the specialist who operated in India, Belgium and Czech Republic picked Cosmetic Bliss.

The support from Forerunners Healthcare Consultants helped me through every stage with ease. Still, when I left for India to surgery I was very nervous and questioned myself as to whether I was doing the right thing. Every unfit piece of the question began to make sense. The hotel was efficient and clean and the following morning our taxi arrived to take us bright and early to the clinic for tests and to meet the surgeon associated to Forerunners Healthcare Consultants.

Doctors were very polite who showed me nothing other than professional, compassionate and first class care answering any questions and making every effort to ensure I understood what was happening at every step of the way. The hospital looks a little dated on the outside but once into the ward areas they are new, clean and pleasant with rooms that hold two or three people at a time and each with its own bathroom containing a large shower, toilet and hand basin, all kept scrupulously clean. It was easy to communicate with the nurses; I had a great team of professional helping me to get better quickly. I felt uncomfortable and sick the day of the operation, but was walking around the next day and all drains where out by two days after the operation, everyone reacts differently to medical procedures and pain. I think the best way to sum it up is say that all I needed to make me as comfortable as possible was done. Forerunners Healthcare has kept in touch so that I have no worries over anything that happen post operation.

It's what has happened since my return home that has been the biggest revelation to me. Over the past three decades I have always felt hungry on my seemingly permanent diet and really never got anywhere. Now after following the strict diet for the first few weeks after the procedure I find I can have a meal of say two sprouts, half a carrot and a tablespoon full of Mushrooms (I'm a vegetarian before any meat eaters start to worry) and I'm full ! No kidding, no exaggerations, no japes - the strangest thing is knowing that although my brain seems to react to smells as before , my stomach doesn't tell me I'm hungry and need to eat. It’s a sheer delight at not being ruled by my appetite anymore. All thanks to Forerunners Healthcare for their help and support for my Sleeve gastrectomy in India.
