Hi there, I had my sleeve done by Dr Kow and she is amazing! I was sleeved on 29th March and no complications with sleeve at all.

Hi. Hope you don'tmind me asking some questions. How long was it from the time you seen Dr Kow to having surgery? Was the process hard? And how long was the pre liquid diet?

Hi there, I saw Dr Kow approximately 5 months before surgery and the process was easy. I was on Optifast 2 weeks prior to procedure then liquid diet 2 weeks post surgery, purée food for 2 weeks, soft diet for 2 weeks then gradually introducing other foods (protein) into diet. My starting weight was 125kg and now I am 87kg.

Hi. Well done thats amazing. Did you have to see their GP and dietician?
Is that why it took 5 months?

Hi I was sleeved 21st August by Dr Teague at Ashford Hospital. He was awesome and the pre-op and post care was fantastic. My costs were $3000. I cant happily say I've lost nearly 40 kg.

My first appointment was at the end of June and we booked in the surgery on my second appointment.

Getting sleeved was the best decision I've made in my life.

Good luck with your surgery.

Sounds like an easy process? I'm curious about ASHFORD. I'm looking at RNY BYPASS on the website says $4000 is that the only costs or did you have to pay for Dietician or anything else?

40kgs in 3 months? That's amazing how long was pre-op diet?? I'm leaning towards Ashford as they have their own GP and seems like easy process.

I have BMI of 42 plus other co morbidities.

I don't want to have to jump through hoops
