Case Study 1:

My name is Andrea. Before my journey began I weighed 130.7kg (BMI of 51.1 kg/m2), I am 42 years old, married with a 6 year old daughter. This is a picture of me before my laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. At this time I had tried every diet and weight loss medication that was possible. I had lots of problems due to my obesity i.e gestational diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome and aches and pains. My GP suggested i try weight loss surgery and this is when my life changed.

I met Mr Ammori in August 2008 who made me feel at ease with this scarey procedure I was about to go through. He was very kind and made me feel like a person and not just a name. The time between seeing Mr Ammori and having the surgery flew by very quickly.

This is me 6 months following my gastric bypass surgery. I weighed 90.4 kg (BMI 34.5 kg/m2) The difference was amazing. I can play with my daughter without feeling exhausted, I feel more confident, my periods have returned to normal, my aches and pains have reduced dramatically. I am feeling great and well on my way to reaching my goal of 11 stones.

This is my current picture. My life has changed for the better. I currently weigh 71.1 kg (BMI 27 kg/m2)). I have reached my goal. I run several times a week and do so many things I would only have dreamed of doing before. I thank Mr Ammori and his wonderful team who have taken care of me throughout this process. I feel amazing.

Case study 2:

Mrs. MM is a 32-year-old woman who suffered with obesity since her teenage years. This has been associated with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and high cholesterol levels. As a result of her PCOS she was unsuccessful in getting pregnant despite several attempts at drug therapy and artificial insemination. She and her husband explored IVF and were advised that this wouldn’t be considered until she loses weight and reaches a BMI of 30 kg/m2 or less. She weighed approximately 21 stones and had a BMI of 43 kg/m2. Her eating profile indicated large meal portions and excess sweets; she therefore elected to undergo laparoscopic gastric bypass. The surgery was carried out in April 2006 and she was discharged home the next day. Within 6 months of surgery she reduced her weight to 88.6 kg (BMI 27.6 kg/m2). However, her weight loss very much stopped at that stage and to everyone’s surprise we discovered 9 months after surgery that she was 6-months pregnant! She and her husband were thrilled when she delivered a normal healthy child (please note that we advise that women avoid pregnancy during the initial 12 months after bypass surgery). She currently weighs 72 kg (11.4 stones) with a BMI of 22.5 kg/m2.

Case study 3:

Mrs. CN is a 44-year-old woman who suffered with obesity-associated health conditions including type-2 diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure) for 16 years. She was both a volume-eater and a sweet-eater. Having failed to achieve sustained and meaningful weight loss with diets and medical therapy she elected to explore surgery. Her pre-surgery weight was 103 kg (16.3 stones) with a BMI of 37.8 kg/m2. She underwent laparoscopic gastric bypass in September 2006. Within 6 months her diabetes specialist was able to discontinue the medications for diabetes and hypertension. She currently weighs 70 kg (BMI 25 kg/m2) and is awaiting an apronectomy (tummy tuck).

Case study 4:

Mr. GD was 36-year-old when he underwent laparoscopic gastric banding in May 2003. Prior to surgery he weighed 138 kg (21 stones) and had a BMI of 43 kg/m2. He suffered with type-2 diabetes, hypertension and osteoarthritis of the spine. Over four years since his surgery he has lost 56% of his excess weight as he currently weighs 107 kg (17 stones) with a BMI of 32.5 kg/m2. This has been associated with cure from diabetes, and marked improvement in his blood pressure control on therapy and arthritis.

Case study 5:

Mr. IG is a 39-year-old man who has been obese all his life and gave a strong family history of obesity. He suffered with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), hypertension, and severe osteoarthritis of his back, hips and knees. He tried several diets over the years with limited, short-lived success, was unable to tolerate Xenical (Orlistat) as it gave him diarrhoea and sever bloating, and found that Reductil (Sibutramine) did not suppress his appetite. He used to have large meal portions, snack between meals and indulge in sweets. He weighed 240 kg (38 stones) before surgery (BMI 69 kg/m2), and underwent laparoscopic gastric bypass in February 2007. He has now lost approximately 80% of his excess weight as he weighed 117 kg (18½ stones), his OSA resolved, his arthritis of has very much improved and his blood pressure has come under better control with a decrease in medications.
