I had been struggling with my obesity all my life. I would lose weight; gain it all back and more. After the third attempt at losing weight and failing, I decided to look into bariatric surgery and was really amazed to know the benefits. I had developed sleep apnea in my early twenty’s. Then as I got older, I developed hypertension, hypothyroidism and borderline diabetes. i decided to meet Dr.Kapil Agrawal again as he had removed my gallbladder a couple years ago and I was very impressed with how easy it went. I underwent bariatric surgery in feb 2015 and i began to experience its benefit in a couple of weeks time. My energy and stamina levels began to increase and i could walk for 3-4 kms continously. After losing 35 kgs ,today I weight only 64 kgs and the journey of my weight loss has been very smooth and with the continous supervision and guidance of his team , i feel my life completely transformed. My constant problem of joint pains, high blood pressure and sleep apnoea have completely disappeared . I would like to extend my thanks to Dr.Kapil Agrawal and his team for giving me a new lease of life and would definitely recommend him to anyone who is interested in bariatric surgery or looking for a laparoscopic surgeon.
