INTERNATIONAL PATIENT EXPERIENCES
Obesity Surgery Testimonials
In January 2005 I came to India for my gastric bypass surgery. I am very happy with the results of my RNY Gastric Bypass weight loss operation facilitated by Forerunners Healthcare Consultants. I was very confident of the world-class quality healthcare available here. The email contacts with Dr Dheeraj Bojwani were very prompt and provided very good and detailed information on all of my queries. I had access to the bariatric surgeon both by telephone and email. The surgeon helped me prepare for the procedure, and he promptly addressed all my concerns. The surgery went very well. I was very happy and comfortable with my surgeon and the surgical team. After the surgery and recuperation, I enjoyed visiting the city. I went on a sight seeing tour and shopping with a Tour2india4health Consultant’s representative. I enjoyed our 24-day peaceful recuperation in exotic Goa. After my surgery, I lost a lot of weight, and I felt very good.
Then again in April 2006 I visited India for my Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift surgery, this time I was accompanied with my husband. My husband and I were met and greeted by a Forerunners Healthcare Consultants representative at the airport. We were provided with a cell phone for emergency contacts, and we were given access to an international call facility to keep in touch with our family and friends. A SUV transferred us throughout our stay. Forerunners Healthcare Consultants coordinated all the arrangements and made sure we were in the right place at the right time.
A Forerunners Healthcare Consultants representative visited us everyday during our stay at the hospital and the hotel to ensure that we were comfortable. Forerunners Healthcare Consultants arranged for the medications, packaged juices and they even arranged a three days Henna (temporary Indian Tattoo) training session in the comfort of my hotel room.
We were always in touch with our family and friends back home through the cell phones provided by Forerunners Healthcare Consultants, They also arranged for an escorted tour to local markets, a handicrafts bazaar and modern malls. I am very confident of the excellent quality of healthcare in India and would not hesitate to have more procedures completed there. I highly recommend the affordable the medical surgery treatment packages available through Forerunners Healthcare Consultants.
to having Gastric Bypass
Surgery I weighed 389
lbs., suffered from Type II diabetes, sleep apnea,
hypertension and joint pain. This should have been
enough to alert me to the death cycle I was on:
but it was not. I fooled myself into thinking that
I was relatively healthy and young enough to overcome
my medical problems.
after my 31st birthday, my 7-year old son
asked me if I would live to see her children.
I asked her "what do you mean?" He said, "Daddy,
if you don't lose weight you're not going
to be around when I get married and have
children." It took these comments from
my little son to make me realize that my
life was slipping away and I had to do
something about my weight or forego the
joys of parenthood and, hopefully, grand
parenting. After my chat with my son, I
looked in earnest for a reputable doctor
to consult for Gastric Bypass Surgery.
But the cost of getting private surgery
in UK was totally out of my budget.
searched for my options in other countries and
finally short listed on the Forerunners
Healthcare Consultants in India.
I was fortunate to find Dr.
Dheeraj Bojwani and Forerunners Healthcare in
India, who thoroughly helped me at every step
to plan my surgery in India. On December 24th,
2005, Gastric Bypass Surgery was successfully
performed: I have not looked back. The recovery
was not easy, but it was as explained to me by
the surgeon and definitely it was worth it. I
went from size 60 suits to a size 40; I now weigh
170 lbs and enjoy life's little pleasures with
my son, who is now 13. I no longer suffer from
diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and joint
pain. All of my illnesses have disappeared, and
I can now say that I truly enjoy a healthy life
and a healthy lifestyle.
writing this on August 23rd,-06”--three months
to the day since I had my surgery with the Forerunners
Healthcare in India. At my last weigh-in,
I was down 68 pounds. That was in the middle of
July. I started at over 330 pounds. My results
have been remarkable and I've been very fortunate
in my recovery. I had only one bad period when
for about three weeks I was fatigued and dizzy.
It did go away, though, and the sailing since has
been very smooth. But that's the only thing I've
found that I can't eat. And I think the key to
all of my success is following the doctor's instructions.
The surgery, as the doctor will tell you, is only
the beginning. It's just a tool to help you with
your weight loss. If you want to have success,
you HAVE TO modify your eating habits. It's the
only way to get the most out of the surgery.
to the operation, I was a sweet-aholic, loved
fried foods and loved bread. Since the surgery,
I've eaten no sugar to speak of, no fried
foods and about two pieces of bread--total.
It hasn't been easy, but it's necessary.
Otherwise, you'll have had the surgery for
nothing. But the good news is, with a smaller
stomach, you won't want to overeat, because
if you do, you'll get very uncomfortable.
I've had that happen a few times, and it
reminds me not to do it again.
As far as the doctors go, I can't imagine any
better person in India than Dr. Dheeraj
Bojwani to assist you for this. And he
assured me that they'd have the best people possible
working on the surgical team to make sure I did
make it. And as you can see, I did fine! Dr.
Dheeraj Bojwani was always assisting me
both before and after the surgery and if you decide
to have gastric bypass surgery, I highly recommend
that you choose Forerunners Healthcare
Consultants in India. My experience has
been fantastic--pre-op, op and post-op. And it
was very comforting to know that if I had a question
about ANYTHING during my recovery, they were there
to answer it. If you’re ready for it, take
the step. And get your surgery with the Forerunners
