On the 12th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to me Twelve Drummers Drumming

Will people automatically know I’ve had Bariatric surgery?

Is it tattooed on my forehead? No

How can people tell if you have had surgery?

I’ve had a Gastric Band now for a number of years. Although we appreciate greatly, patients giving testimonials for our website and word of mouth is absolutely the best recommendation we could ask for. I want you all to know, you don’t have to tell people. You can keep it quiet if you want to. People won’t necessarily know, unless you choose to tell them.

Bang on the drum – loud & clear! I’ve had bariatric surgery to lose weight......... No thank you, you don’t have to tell people.

I like staying under the radar! I’m really pleased that on the outside no one knows, unless, I choose to tell them. I don’t have a tattoo on my forehead saying “I have a gastric band”.I eat less yes, I eat slower yes, I do more exercise yes. I buy more clothes and underwear! I have had so many compliments from people about how well I have done, not just for losing the weight but for keeping the weight off!

I am so much happier with myself, I have so much less daily pain. I finally feel that I can pay myself a compliment rather than not looking in the mirror, or rather than looking in the mirror saying “what do you look like” to myself.

Most importantly I am now living my life rather than just existing.

If you are in doubt, if you have any questions.... call the Bariatric Group and have a chat. They understand exactly where you are coming from and where you would like to get to.

Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year. Make it a New Year for you.........a New Start. X
