I was 24 when I first enquired about gastric band surgery. I had heard great things about The Hospital Group and their aftercare – it was proved right. Fab!
I felt comfortable from word go. No pressure and Rachel was lovely. The surgeon was lovely and made sure I was happy. All the staff at Dolan Park Hospital were great. The aftercare has been amazing.
The surgery has made a huge difference to my life. My PCOS has improved massively and I am now confident and happy. I have been so lucky with the level of support I have had from my friends and family. Some thought it was the easy way out but now they’ve seen me work so hard they know otherwise.
In all honesty, it’s the best thing I ever did. I would say if you feel you need a ‘tool’ to help you achieve the life you deserve then go for it. Ignore the horror stories and do it for you, nobody else. I am still the same person but the smile I wear is now real! Follow all the advice and aftercare and you will succeed!”
