"I no longer drink alcohol and I can fit into standard size clothes"

100%Reviewed 17 Jan 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
I am a 48 year old man and had a gastric sleeve in November 2015. My surgeon and consultant was Mr Hamouda and I had the surgery at the Nuffield Hospital in Tunbridge Wells. I decided to have a gastric sleeve to help me manage my weight and to reduce the rising risks with high blood pressure, skin damage, joint pain and potential diabetes. I had tried and failed on diets and even exercise was not having the desired effect. My starting weight was 23 stone 3 pounds and two months later I am now 18 stone 6 pounds - so over a 4.5 stone weight loss. I chose a gastric sleeve because it allows me to eat a normal diet and doesn't need the level of maintenance the band requires. I accepted the fact that my eating and drinking habits would have to change and that it is not a panacea to all ills. I paid £8.5K for the sleeve and it is the best investment I have ever made. My physical and mental wellbeing have improved enormously and for the first time in years I feel confident, positive and hopeful. Having this operation has empowered me to take more control of my weight and I have lost many of the hunger pains that inexplicably used to be with me every waking hour. I have to manage emotional associative and comfort eating (watching a film, after a hard day or on a cold wet Sunday) but the physical limitations on food intake have helped me achieve this. The first few weeks is not easy and I wondered if I would ever eat solids again but honestly that soon passes and the initial discomfort is worth it. Do as you are told and this is not a difficult transition. As your body shape changes and you take more control of your dietary intake you will feel a freedom that you have probably not had before - freedom to eat sensibly and healthily without the physical urges to binge. I view this procedure as excellent value for money. I am saving a fortune on my food bill, I no longer drink alcohol and I can fit into standard size clothes without looking for specialist providers. My positivity also means that I am more sociable again and I feel more confident and ambitious at work. Its changed my life.

I shopped around and although there were price differentials the key factor for me when choosing a supplier was the quality of initial information and the track record of their aftercare. I was also looking for a hospital setting that was known for good quality care and support. I have been hugely impressed by Mr Hamouda and his team. From the start I felt like I could do things at my pace and that my wellbeing mattered. With some other clinics I immediately felt on a conveyor belt where getting the money out of my pocket was all that mattered. Throughout my journey with the Pembury Clinic the care I have been shown has been excellent. There was a real understanding of my situation and I felt my individual needs were important. I have never felt judged and always felt respected and supported. Mr Hamouda is an excellent surgeon and consultant and I would recommend his services to anyone. He is considerate, patient, informative and judging by the lack of scaring or pain I have experienced he is a very accomplished surgeon. The team at the Nuffield were brilliant and I sent a letter complimenting their services to the hospital. They saw to my every need when I was an inpatient but let me do things for myself when I could. That was important to me and speeded up my recovery. I am receiving helpful expert dietary advice which gives me choices and doesn't restrict my lifestyle. Rooted in practicality the dietary advice is sensible and helps me achieve weight loss whilst managing my expectations and not restricting my working or personal life with unmanageable eating regimes. I eat better and am loving my new diet. I eat less of course but haven't felt physical discomfort because I have followed the instructions. I still cannot manage the required fluid intake per day but I get down what I can and my dietician has not been worried about this. Take your own time and follow their advice you will be fine. I would happily recommend the Pembury Clinic and I would recommend the Nuffield in Tunbridge Wells.

"I would not be where I am today without having this procedure"
100%Reviewed 29 Mar 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
The struggle with my weight had taken over the past 20 years of my life. You name the diet, I tried it. Some worked, short term and some didn’t. I could easily point the blame in different directions but at the end of the day it really was down to me – my life style, my choices, most of which were the wrong ones. But that has all changed. I have had and continue to have the support of my husband to take back control
My health was suffering and would only get worse if my weight issue was not addressed. My confidence was at an all time low, in fact I hated myself physically and mentally.
After long heart felt conversations with my husband it was he who suggested surgery and it was he who encouraged me to research the different options. That’s when I found Mr Hamouda. After 3-4 weeks thinking time I finally found the courage to pick up the phone and arrange a consultation. That was in May 2015. Mr Hamouda was very professional from start to finish. He was easy to talk to and he listened. He explained in great detail – the good the bad and the ugly. We discussed everything and the conclusion was that a sleeve gastrectomy would be my best option. The operation was performed 24th June 2015.
My top weight at the beginning of my journey was 122 kilos and would have probably kept rising – but today, March 2016 my weight is 84 kilos, and decreasing. I was given invaluable dietary advice both verbally and written, which I constantly refer to to and expert advice is only a phone call away should I need it.
This is not a quick fix solution, you have to make changes for life. My changes have resulted in a healthier and happier me. I still have a little way to go but I know I would not be where I am today without having this procedure.

From the moment I was admitted to the moment I was discharged I received the best possible care and support from all concerned, and still do at my follow up appointments with Mr Hamouda. Everybody has been amazing. Mr Hamouda and his team have given me back my life.

"I don'e ever feel hungry after gastric sleeve"
100%Reviewed 22 Nov 2015 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
On February 11th 2015 I had a Gastric sleeve , the main reason I decided on this procedure was years of badly controlled Diabetes.
After the operation I was in no pain or discomfort only feeling sick,after losing approx 4 stone in weight I no longer have to take the 5 shots a day and I do not take any medication at all for diabetes, I feel and look so much better and will never look back, the best decision I have ever made. I don't ever feel hungry and don't have that constant what can I eat next feeling.

All the staff at Nuffield were fantastic, explaining everything that would happen during the operation and afterwards, during my stay, there was not a thing I could fault with anything . Mr Hamouda was very clear what to expect during and after the operation and himself and staff always very helpful, and only a phone call away if any questions. Myself and family are 100% happy with the results.
