Re-watch Sammy Usher Mr Rishi Singhal and Van Patel live Q&A on YouTube

LIVE Q&A with Sammy, Rishi and Van (The Dietologist)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

You may have seen Healthier Weight patient Sammy on Channel 4’s Shut-Ins: Britain’s Fattest People recently, and we had the pleasure of welcoming her to a live Q&A with her surgeon Mr Rishi Singhal. Sammy’s story is another amazing example of just how much weight loss surgery can help you rediscover your life.

Mr Rishi Singhal on Shut Ins: Britain's Fattest People

Sammy had been suffering from a number of weight-related health problems including Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH) and was 31 stone as a result of her eating disorder. She decided that weight loss surgery was her best chance of being able to see her first grandchild grow up, and after consulting with Mr Singhal, they decided that the gastric bypass was the right procedure for her.

“My advice to anyone is to never give up! There’s always someone out there who’s willing to help!”

We were also joined by specialist bariatric nutritionist Van Patel, otherwise known as The Dietologist. Van is the UK’s leading private weight loss expert for clients who have undergone or are planning weight loss surgery and knows everything there is about eating correctly after life-changing surgery.

It was great to catch up with Sammy and to get an update on her journey so far. We also welcomed live questions that Mr Singhal and Van were able to provide comprehensive answers to. They covered a broad range of topics including the differences between the procedures, why aftercare is so key to your weight loss and the relationship between weight loss and gallstones. Watch it at any time here, it’s a great insight into weight loss and weight loss surgery.
