|| I have always been overweight, from a very early age. I continued through my teens into my forties and finally got to my heaviest of 415 pounds at the age of 50. My doctor had already warned me that I was borderline diabetic, had high blood pressure, and a hereditary weight condition, and I was classed as morbidly obese and that if I didn't lose weight I could be dead in a couple of years. I had tried every diet in the book throughout my life. Things finally came to a head when I realized drastic action needed to be taken, as only being married for six years and now blissfully happy, I owed it to myself and my husband to lose the weight.
I researched the website for information on the laproscopic gastric bypass, and found Forerunnershealthcare.com. I received the relevant information and the initial form for completion online. This I immediately returned. I was then offered a date for the operation.
On arrival in India, on a Monday, I went to the clinic for the initial tests. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly, and the clinic itself was extremely modern (not like in the USA). Tests completed, I then made my way to the hospital. I met Dr Dheeraj Bojwani who sat and explained in great detail about the operation. (My husband was also staying with me in the same room, which was company for me) and received five star treatment. Next day, I had the operation, and apart from a little discomfort felt extremely well and my life had been preserved for some more years to enjoy things that I have not done or could not do in the past due to the excessive weight.
My life was now on a new path. I sat wondering about being able to get clothes to fit and that now I would be able to eventually bend over to tie shoelaces, and the way my life would alter. After spending the night in ICU (no problems, just precaution) I returned to my room to rest and recover. Next day I was up and about and doing some gentle walking down the corridor. I was told by the Dietician what foods to eat and what to avoid, and was discharged from the hospital on Saturday. And then I decided to get the treatment of dental veneers. Once I saw through computer imagery what my smile could look like, I never thought twice about getting porcelain veneers. Dentist explained the process thoroughly and I'm very pleased with the results. I spent a further couple of days in a hotel in India with the view of doing some sight-seeing, I would like to thank Dr Dheeraj Bojwani for his support, and continuing contact with me, Forerunners Healthcare Consultants and his surgical team for the professional care, knowledge and expertise with this medical procedure, and for changing and saving my life.
