Hello, I know you probably think this is just another testimonial and trust me I was once where you are today.... wondering should I, what the consequences are having surgery, will things turn out how I want them too? I can't promise perfection, however for me life couldn't be better!
Prior to having the Gastric Sleeve surgery I had high Cholesterol 340 to be exact and weighed 236lbs prior to coming to Jerusalem Hospital. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, and my surgeon was the best! Upon arriving to Jerusalem Hospital I was skeptical, nervous and wondering if I made the biggest mistake of my life, but in speaking with the other patients they all had fellow friends and relatives that have had procedures performed here and was successful. That gave me a sense of relief....
After the surgery be prepared, as they make you walk! :o) They encourage a lot of exercise, and the only bad thing, just giving you heads up, is the liquid you have to drink in order to ensure no leakage and all is healing properly.
I wouldn't trade this experience for the world because as of today August 15, 2012 my cholesterol is now 220 and I weigh 175lbs. Everywhere I go people cannot believe how good I look, and I can't believe I actually did it! I went from a size 22 to now size 12/ 14.
It's normal to be skeptical and nervous about making this life changing step, however just know that several thousand people too were once in your shoes and today we couldn't be happier with the results! I wish I wouldn't had procrastinated so long and had this done sooner THANK YOU JERUSALEM HOSPITAL!
