My life before WLS

Before I had surgery, I used to find daily life quite difficult. I’d have to be helped out of bed sometimes in the morning by my other half because of backache as I was really struggling with a lot of joint pain.

My Tonic experience 

When I first started looking into weight loss surgery, Tonic was one of the first ones that came up in regards to Dr Sherif Awad, who I chose as my surgeon. Everything with Tonic seemed fantastic. The reviews were just amazing, and that put me at ease straight away. I had all the information I could need and they were always on hand. Any questions I had, I knew exactly who to go to.

I was back to work the week after my surgery, with minimal discomfort. The aftercare at Tonic is absolutely fantastic. There is support 24/7. If you can’t get somebody by email, they answer their mobiles. Whenever there was an email or a phone call, it certainly was at a time when I really needed them.

Life after surgery 

My life now is completely different. I have quite a manual job and I’m constantly on my feet, which is something I never would’ve done before. I can walk my dogs without any trouble and I’m able to just get up and move and not be in pain all the time. I’m no longer self-conscious either.

I would 100% recommend Tonic to anyone looking into having any kind of weight loss surgery. It completely changed my life and I would go ahead and do it again tomorrow if I could.

Chanelle Hayes Tonic journey with a gastric sleeve

“Before weight loss surgery, I couldn’t cope with doing anything strenuous and I couldn’t spend time with my children in the way I wanted to. My eating was out of control, and I had been yo-yoing. 

A year out from surgery, I’m a completely different person. Last year, my body fat percentage was in the morbidly obese category. Now, I’m in the healthy weight category.”
