PATIENT OF THE WEEK *David Phillips*

Phillips  David preop

Many patients want to hear from other patients. One way of achieving this is to highlight patients in our new ‘Patient of the Week’ blog. Time allowing we will ask many of you to share with fellow patients some of your keys to success.

Club New You (CNY) Are you happy that you had bariatric surgery?
DP “Best thing I ever did! Changed my life!”

CNY Would you recommend this to your friends and family?
DP “I have and will continue to do so.”

CNY Have you told your friends that you have had surgery and what do they think about it?
DP “Yes. Everyone can’t believe the difference it has made.”

CNY Which procedure did you choose to have and why?
DP “Sleeve, I wanted something safe and permanent.”

CNY What is the hardest lifestyle change that you have had to deal with?
DP “Nothing, been the easiest thing I’ve ever done and that’s the truth.”

CNY Are there any foods that you have trouble eating?
DP “None so far. If anything something dry and stringy.”

CNY What foods, if any, do you miss eating?
DP “None.”

CNY What types of activities do you do for your exercise?
DP “Treadmill.”

CNY Any words of wisdom for our present patients or for people thinking about surgery?
DP “Don’t think twice. Get this done. It’s an investment in your life. Don’t listen to the horror stories. If you are hearing one, someone was not following the rules.”

CNY Thanks! Keep up the good work!
