I went to the Rochdale clinic on Manchester road, it was a nervous experience on the first day of the surgery. The staff were amazing and put me to ease and always asking if I am Ok. However, I was dreading the surgery of gynecomastia, when entered the surgery Dr Amr Khalil was really good and told me everything will be ok and it will hurt at first and then I wouldn’t feel anything and it will all be over.
I will be delighted with the outcome, therefore when the surgery took place I had something cover my eyes, as I didn’t want to see the surgery, I could feel some pain at the beginning and it was ok after the anaesthetic had been injected in me. Furthermore, after about 2 and a half hours I heard Dr Khalil say it’s all done and I will be happy with the result, I was happy that the surgery went well and the surgery was finished, Dr Khalil said to go home and if any problem to get in touch, the aftercare team was not in place to tell me what to do or what should happen after, Geri was the person giving me a brief insight on what I should do and she was amazing in helping and giving me that peace of mind, on the other hand when I came home I was in so much pain, it was the worst pain in the world and kept feeling light-headed when I woke up in the morning I noticed something wasn’t right looking at my chest one side was bigger, the right side, I immediately got in touch with Dr Khalil and he told me to come in that same day, I went back and he explained that he needed to clean it out and I had a clot.
I was devastated as I did not want to go threw the surgery again however Dr Khalil was amazing and he put me to ease and it was painful but it was all done within an hour, it was really good of Dr Khalil to see me straight away and deal with the outcome that I was facing. He said it should be perfect now and I should recover for 2 weeks I will see the difference.
I am still waiting to be healed as it has been 10 days and take off my compression vest, and see if it is a normal chest again like I have been told by the signature clinic, I will keep you updated.
