Cheryl had her operation at KIMS and is full of praise for KIMS and Mr Siddiqui!

IMG_20170109_190008322_HDR I started this journey 2 years ago, when I reached my maximum weight of 21st 5lb, I had had such bad health I had a huge hernia that needed repair but surgeons would not consider surgery as I was such high risk because of my weight. I was at the end of my tether so decided the only way was to have weight loss surgery. I consulted with Mr Siddiqui who told me my only option was a gastric sleeve as I had a lot of bowel problems in the past. I jumped at the opportunity to have the surgery at KIMS Hospital in Maidstone. I was nervous but was looked after so well at KIMS and it transpired that I was one of the first people to have this surgery there, it was the best thing I ever did.

I can honestly say I have never had a problem since having the procedure. I lost a stone a month for about 6 months then still continued to lose weight steadily every month thereafter, I have not had one gain. The aftercare I receive from KIMS and Mr Siddiqui is second to none and there is always someone on the phone ready to help if there is a problem. There have not really been any major challenges as the surgery takes away that hungry feeling so is a huge help in being able to stick with the plan. Just being able to eat smaller portions and enjoy healthier food is wonderful.

I am enjoying life with my husband and my family and I can’t stop buying new clothes now (such a terrible problem to have haha!) to date I have lost just over 9st and I weigh 12st 4lb and am a size 14/16, 2 years ago I was wearing a size 30. I also was suffering from high blood pressure and am now off all Meds. I cannot recommend this type of surgery highly enough to anyone with severe weight problems, you will never regret making the decision and it will transform your life.
