"Bariatric Surgery ongoing follow up app...."

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Quarterly outpatients app.. The Consultantref me to Walsall Manor Hsp for surgery which was done Aug 8th 08 it has been a complete success so far having lost 18st (I am now half the man I was) I have developed an excellent relationship with the Consultant and his team over the past years and I simply wanted to put on record how crucial a role he and his team play in the lives of people who find themselves morbidly over weight with apparently no way back, w/watchers isn't practicle with so much weight to lose(lt's like trying to empty a swimming pool with a teaspoon you will get demotivated first). In summary, the Consultant is the nearest thing to god on earth to me, I feel blessed to have him as my consultant. Big Thank you's JJ.
