My life before WLS

Prior to my surgery, I was nearly 25 stone and I was ill. I had diabetes, sleep apnoea and I’d need an extendable seatbelt every time I flew. I was a girl in my 20s and I wanted to go travelling and see the world but I really felt my weight was holding me back and it was embarrassing. I had tried various different weight loss programmes and diets – you name it, I’d tried it!

My Tonic experience 

I had a gastric sleeve in June 2019 with Tonic and so far, I’ve lost 11 and a half stone.

My surgeon met my family and me prior to going ahead and he explained everything fully. One thing that I really liked about him was that he didn’t judge me and he made me feel like a person.

Life after surgery 

Since having the surgery, I no longer have diabetes or sleep apnoea. I don’t need an extendable seatbelt, so no more walks of shame. I don’t wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and just hate myself.

I’d absolutely recommend Tonic Weight Loss Surgery because I know what it’s like googling and looking for a clinic. You don’t know how much you need a really good one until maybe something goes wrong. It’s then that Tonic are able to provide so much support. I would go to Tonic 10 times over. Absolutely, no regrets. They have saved my life!

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.”
