Like many people who suffer from weight problems, which I have done for maybe 20 years, and although I just got on with everyday life as normally as possible, the problem was always on my mind. Gradually I became more and more conscious of my size with all the associated health problems; joint pain, breathlessness, the list goes on. I became more and more withdrawn, something that was totally alien to my normal out going self or perhaps this was always just a front.
Over the years I, like everyone who has weight issues, tried every diet imaginable with varying degrees of success and indeed often failure. Eventually and after my health started to suffer, I took to the decision to consider weight loss surgery and after trolling the internet and speaking to other providers came across NOSC. After looking at their website and reading reviews etc. I gave them a call. This was the best decision I have ever made! Right from the word go they were helpful and gave me all the information I required to make my decision and proceed with my surgery.
The process was simple and every step of the way was explained to me. I attended the hospital for my initial consultation with my surgeon, again with the same friendly and helpful manner. My surgery was then booked and although I had to change the date at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances this again was dealt with fantastically.
The date of my surgery arrived, and like all the steps before, reaching this point was made easy. The whole process in hospital was effortless and after the surgery was over, I was released home following an overnight stay with everything regarding medication, aftercare and the early stages of my weight loss journey explained in detail, and with the reassurance that NOSC were only a phone call away if I had any concerns.
That was on the 20th December 2016. The assistance and support from NOSC has continued and as I write this some 6 months later, I have now lost 9 stone. None of this would have been possible without the help and guidance from NOSC and all their tremendous staff and the staff at the hospital.
Don’t get me wrong, this was one of the hardest decisions of my life but has turned out to be one of the best, all made better with the assistance of NOSC both before I made my decision and indeed still on-going. The only regret I have over all this is not doing this sooner.
Finally, what I would say to anyone who is considering the option of weight loss surgery, go for it and with NOSC by your side your choice will be life changing, just like it has been for me.
