Gastric bypass surgery – Mary’s story | Spire Healthcare


♪ [music] ♪ I’m Mary. I’m 56 years old now and I can honestly
say that I’ve struggled with weight all of my life. I’ve tried every diet, probably. Most of them quite successfully,
lost lots of weight, but then put the weight back on again with
a bit more, as well. Which had an impact because I didn’t
really want to do any physical activity. I would drive everywhere. So I had gastric bypass surgery
almost four years ago. So I’m quite a long way down the line now
and absolutely no regrets. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made
in my life and it’s now given me so much more energy to do things that I wouldn’t
have even contemplated doing before. It’s given me confidence because I don’t
feel the need to shy away and be in the background and not want to be noticed. It’s changed my life in so many different
ways, all in a positive way. This is obviously quite a big
life-changing event and it’s very important to do research properly. I really wanted to go on word of mouth so
the fact that I knew somebody who’d been there and had this same procedure that I
had with the same surgeon, that was just worth its
weight in gold to me. ♪ [music] ♪
