Miss H: My Gastric Wrap

If there are any ladies – or lads – out there thinking about undergoing a gastric wrap, then you’re in luck! One of our past patients, the mysterious Miss H, is here to tell us all about her experiences with a gastric wrap at Secret Surgery.

What made you think of cosmetic surgery? “After years of being overweight and trying and failing on every diet possible, I had begun to get really despondent and almost to the point of giving up. I had never considered surgery but things were getting desperate. I knew that a girl at my work had had the gastric wrap and have watched her slim down and grow in confidence. I had a chat with her and she recommended Secret Surgery and told me to give Angela a call.”

Wow! And how did that proceed? “After a couple of emails and calls from Secret Surgery I decided it was right for me, deposit was paid and all arrangements made. More importantly, I’d been matched up with a surgery buddy to accompany me to Prague. I also had Patricia from Secret Surgery as my contact and was encouraged to call her if i had any questions or worries. Unfortunately my surgery buddy had to postpone her surgery so I arrived in Prague feeling a little like a fish out of water!”

Oh no; and what about when you got to Poland? “I was taken by the driver to the clinic and met by Brooke, who showed me to me apartment. Apartment was lovely, I even had two toilets, guess you can never have too many!! I was told I would be met the following morning at 7am for the big day! Only I felt so chilled in my lovely apartment bed that I nearly overslept, had to rush round getting ready so no time for nerves!!”

Did you get to meet the surgeons? “The representative Tina met me and took me down to the clinic, nerves started kicking in but Tina was lovely and put my mind at rest. I then had various tests and discussions with medical staff, I was impressed at how thorough the pre-op tests were even down to the psychiatric consultation.”

And what about the surgery itself? “I went to my hospital room had my pre-op meds and then laughed uncontrollably while 2 nurses tried to get my surgical stockings up my legs. Although their English was not perfect, they made me feel at ease. Then they wheeled me off to the theatre… I woke up back in my hospital room, feeling surprisingly good.”

Great! But what about after the surgery – the recovery time? “I was checked regularly and drifted in and out of sleep. I got up to go to the toilet and couldn’t believe I hard no pain. I had a good night and the next day the liquids started, I must admit I did have more nausea than I expected, however the staff were amazing what with the nurses and regular checks from the surgeons. I was discharged back to my room on Wednesday afternoon, however I spent the night in my apartment room being sick. I rang Tina and spoke to the nurses saying they would get me to see surgeon in the morning.”

And what happened on Thursday? “On Thursday morning I was seen and readmitted to the clinic, and I was their only patient! I got one to one treatment, which was amazing. My nausea continued until Friday morning but by Friday lunchtime it stopped, and Dr Fried felt OK to discharge me.”

Did you feel that going abroad for surgery was a good idea? “I would just like to say that although I was a lot more sick than I anticipated the level of care I received in the clinic in Prague was second to none, I have had quite a lot of knee surgery privately in this country and there was no difference, if anything I got better treatment over there. I was initially worried about the language problems as some staff were more fluent in English than others, however I would see the same staff and had a good laugh with them as felt quite sad to leave them at the end of the week, along with Tina they had become my family over there!”

Great! And how have things been since coming home? “So here I am, back in the UK already, feeling slimmer with the neatest incisions ever! I would just like to thank Angela and all at Secret Surgery – I never once doubted the professionalism but also felt that I could ask any questions and always got speedy answers.”

Any last thoughts? “I still wish I could have been out there with my surgery buddy that was one thing that really appealed and think that it is great for the company to put you together with someone else in the same boat, so although we didn’t travel together I still have my buddy to share our experience back here. So in a nutshell, I would like to thank Angela and Secret Surgery for all the professionalism and support I have received and I know this will continue in my onward journey! I would recommend this life changing experience to anyone.”
