“If I hadn’t had the surgery, I probably wouldn’t be here today. I hated the way I was before. I was so depressed – my weight really got me down. But weight loss surgery has transformed my life. I’ve got my confidence back – I can do so much more. I’m a totally different person. I feel happy again. It’s absolutely brilliant.”
“I had a gastric band done in Cromwell hospital. It sounds quite clear and simple, however if you or a loved one is going through what I have been through before I had the gastric band done then you will know how big and vicious cycle it can be without having an end at sight.”
“I had gastric bypass surgery about 6 1/2 months ago and I have since lost nearly 6 1/2 stone. Has this surgery changed my life? I can honestly say that it hasn’t but that it has done even more – it has given me back my life!”
“One year later, I have lost 35 kilos, dropped from size 22 to size 12, definitely not pre-diabetic, have lots of energy and am full of confidence!”
“I would recommend the surgery by Mr Ahmed wholeheartedly.”
“They say that life begins at forty but as I approached that special birthday in August 2009, my future appeared very bleak indeed.”
Dr Ahmed is clearly extremely knowledgeable and an amazing surgeon. All of my interactions with him made me feel extremely confident in my choice in choosing him and the Bupa Cromwell hospital.
I chose Mr Ahmed Ahmed specifically because my partner had similar surgery performed last year by him at the same hospital. I had seen Mr Ahmed’s approach and patient care and felt extremely confident that the outcome would be excellent.
Both Mr Ahmed and the anaesthetist (who’s name I sadly don’t have to hand) were able to put me in an excellent state of mind for the procedure as did all of the ward staff.”
