Patient ‘G’ (quite understandably she asked that we protect her anonymity) was a 50 year old lady who had battled her weight for years. Clearly a very well researched lady she had explored the gastric band but wasn’t sure it was right for her. The band is a great procedure but you have to feel you can work with it.
’G’ was 14 stone and had a BMI of 34.1. Incredibly she has now dropped to a BMI of 26.9 and lost 42 pounds in less than a year. She’s at a weight she is happy with and got there in about 9 months only.
We spoke to her and asked some questions about her experience with ESG. Hopefully you’ll find these helpful.
How has your eating changed since having ESG?
I eat much less than I previously eat and don't ever feel hungry, before I felt hungry all the time. Now I have reconnected with food and have a much healthier attitude toward it.
How much weight have you lost?
I have lost 3 stone and dropped 3 dress sizes. I can fit into clothes that I haven't worn for 9 years!
How has the ESG improved your health and or general quality of life?
I don't feel tired all the time now and I feel better when I exercise, it's not as hard as it used to be
How uncomfortable was the procedure and how would you describe the recovery period?
The procedure was uncomfortable for the first day, I was very nauseous. However that pretty much disappeared overnight and the next day I was able to do everything I normally do and the nausea had gone
The results we have seen for ESG patients have been excellent. ‘G’s success is not at all isolated. Most impressive is the speed of her recovery. This could not be expected of a surgical procedure.
