Patient: Ms Farida

Doctor: Dr Ramen Goel

My life has changed completely. I am a new person thanks to Dr. Ramen Goel and Wockhardt Hospital.

"I weighed 122kgs, I had asthma and used to snore had intense acidity and could hardly walk. I felt all the time tired and could not perform much activity. I made up my mind to undergo bypass surgery and underwent a gastric bypass surgery 3 years back. I carried out some research but felt comfortable with Dr Goel . Before surgery quiet few people started discouraging me instead of changing decisions I preponed the surgery. The journey after surgery had been magical. I have lost over 50 kgs. I don’t suffer from acidity. My energy levels are high. I always wanted to take action. Bariatric surgery has given me wings to achieve my dreams. My life has changed completely. I am a new person thanks to Dr. Ramen Goel and Wockhardt Hospital."

It’s a landmark surgery for me. I am starting my life renewed. A new and improved me

"My journey started in 2016 Feb, I did not realise how much weight I was carrying on myself because I felt ok. I was 127 kgs at 47 years of age and BMI was 47. I had a family history of obesity. I started feeling numb and I was going downhill. There was a point when I felt that now a silly straw broke the camel’s back. I don’t remember what it was but my response was enough. I had been toying with the idea of losing weight and had achieved 15-20 kg loss. I was tired of sermons on disciplines and self-control. I was tired of being judged, off being written off, insulted and of being depressed. I was just tired mentally, emotionally and physically with the predicament I was in. I visited Wockhardt Hospital at it changed my life. Dr Raman Goel a very experienced bariatric surgeon along with Dr Madhu Goel , Shefali and Shireen together guided me through this process and took me through this journey. They are my guardian angels. It’s been 5 months now and I have lost 35 kgs. I underwent a sleeve gastrectomy surgery and today I am a much happier person. Bariatric surgery had improved my life immensely. I will continue to write about my experience."
