“Since having the operation I can now go into any shop and buy the clothes I love, rather than the clothes that just fit my size. I could never have imagined buying a size 10 before. The operation has not effected my social life in any way.”
“My experience of Mr. Agrawal was very positive, he was very positive about doing the surgery, he was very relaxed and I was very confident in him. I would definitely recommend Mr. Agrawal.”
“Mr. Agrawal, that’s a lot of fun, absolute brilliant guy.”
“I was a bit scared going to see him, I’d brought my husband with me, in case I forgot what he said. Having someone beside me was very useful. He explained the procedures and types of procedure, and which one I could go for. He was very down to earth and straight forward, I found it very pleasant”
Mr Agrawal has been excellent from start to finish! He was very clear and informative which allowed me to make an informed decision. Everything has been faultless, from my first appointment to my discharge from hospital post surgery! It is clear he has his patients best interests at heart.
I have been extremely happy with the care I have received from Mr Agrawal while having a gastric sleeve. I found him to be kind, straight talking and focussed on making the operation as safe as possible within his control. Although anxious about the operation I felt reassured by his experience and manner. Two month later I am pleased to say I am losing weight and have had no problems or complications. Mr Agrawal's team are superb, and I have felt very well supported by the after care package. I have no regrets and feel positive about the future.
Mr A and his team are angels without wings! I cannot thank Mr A enough for his care, honesty and professionalism from start to finish. After researching the gastric sleeve since summer last year I decided to take the plunge for health reasons. I'm 49 years old and was 21 stone 4lb before surgery. I made an appointment to see Mr A and all the risks were explained including some that related to my own health conditions. I went ahead and booked at The Rivers in Sawbridgeworth. I had my surgery on 7th May 21. The rooms are lovely.
The staff went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and well looked after. They were encouraging, and approachable and nothing was too much trouble. Mr A visited me every day while I was there to check on me too. I've had no pain, just slight tenderness from the stitches and I've already dropped 33lbs (including LRD) in 5 1/2 weeks. The decision I made to have this surgery has been so worth it. My weight is dropping, my confidence is returning and I'm happier in myself already! Best decision I've ever made! Thank you Mr Agrawal and the whole team at The Rivers for such wonderful care!
Sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve surgery is a type of weight-loss surgery where the size of your stomach is reduced by removing the lateral 2/3rds of the stomach (approx. 75-85%) with a stapling device, shaping the remaining stomach into a tube or ‘sleeve’ so that you can only eat small meals.
A sleeve gastrectomy can help you to lose weight by restricting the amount you can eat and reducing your appetite. Like a gastric bypass or band, gastric sleeve surgery restricts the amount of food that you can eat by reducing the size of your stomach so that you feel full faster.
Gastric sleeve surgery is generally safe, but there are always risks when you are having an operation. You will need to discuss these risks with your doctor before deciding if the procedure is right for you.
Gastric sleeve surgery requires a long term approach for successful weight loss. Your journey towards your target weight will begin before the operation, as you prepare for sleeve gastrectomy.
