Today I completed two full months of no diabetes. I was insulin dependent and used to take 65 units insulin 3 times a day. A surgery and proper diet guidance, helped me A Lot to improve and to keep away my 10yrs old diabetes.

Thanks to Dr. Neeraj for the best surgery and Meena for tireless diet follow up and proper diet guidance.. I’ve have changed my life style with 1 he walk, half an hour gym/yoga and ‘easy to follow diet.’ Thanks to all the Doss team. Lost my 25 kg weight. But more than that I became free from diabetes.

As per Dr Geeta mam’s advice. All patients discussed about weight related issues. But what about diseases Diabetes type II, Abnormal blood pressure, Abnormal lipid profile etc. As i was suffering from all these issues. I was done bariatric surgery (gastric bypass) on 23 Oct 2015 by Dr. Satish Pattanshetti. From that day to till now. I am totally medicine free and healthy. Miracle done by Dr. Satish Pattanshetti.

This surgery is just miracle. Yes i am voluntary brand ambassador of this surgery & DOSS.

नमस्कार मित्रांनो, मी बालाजी जालिंदर आवारे, रहाणार बार्शी, आपल्या प्रेमाने आणि डॉ. निरज वासुदेव रायते,पुणे. यांच्या प्रयत्नाने माझे वाढलेले वजनावर(115kg) Baritric Surgery पुर्ण होऊन मला डिस्चार्ज मिळाला आहे माझी तबीयत चांगली  झाली आहे. हा मेसेज तुमच्या वजनाने त्रस्त मित्राला पाठवा.

Mr Kelkar

माझाच या result वर विश्वास बसत नाहीय्ये की HbA1c प्रथम 12.7 ईतके भयानक होते .व आत्ता 5.4 ईतके नॉनडायबेटीक रिडींग येऊ शकते.
हा एक चमत्कारच वाटतोय. सर्जरी पूर्वी मला एवढा चांगला रिझल्ट मिळेल असं अजिबात वाटलं नव्हतं. वजन कमी झाल्याच्या आनंदापलीकडील हा आनंद मला डॉसने दिला. आभारासाठी माझ्याकडे शब्द नाहीत..

Karate Champ Knocks Out 41 Kilo Excess Weight with Bariatric Surgery

Mr B V Awre Before and After

This is a true story of one of our patients Mr Awre who turned around his life. We are grateful to him for candidly sharing his inspiring story with you all. Over to Mr Awre:

I was a karate black belt who taught martial arts in my younger days.

An accident I had in 2010 triggered rapid weight gain due to my limitations for physical exercises after the mishap.

This turned my life upside down.

I had to give up my passion- my Karate teaching. How could I train my students without being able to perform myself? It was agonizing, embarrassing and I had reached the tipping point from where I could take it no more.

Every day was a burden. Every moment a struggle. Every social event an embarrassment. I couldn’t move easily, couldn’t sit on the floor and had several other limitations. Obesity was ruling my life.

At functions, when called for a meal, I would decline saying that I had already eaten, to save myself from embarrassment, as I couldn’t bend or sit on the floor.

Being from rural Maharashtra, I had no knowledge about how to overcome obesity.

Luckily, I attended an Obesity Camp being conducted by DOSS at Solapur. Discussing with Dr Pattanshetti and Dr Rayate gave me great clarity and reassurance; and I made up my mind to go in for obesity surgery. My every query was answered with great patience and my every fear was addressed.

Initially I did not tell my wife and family members when I decided to go in for Obesity Surgery because I did not want them to discourage me from under going surgery. I was clear that I wanted to put an end to the agony of being obese and the Bariatric surgery was the best option. However, my Doctors advised to involve the family members in the decision making and it was the right thing to do.I was operated in 2016 at MGM Hospital Pune.

Within a day, the doctors asked me to walk and I was discharged from hospital within 48 hours. Apart from a few adjustments in my diet and meal timings, there are absolutely no side effects of the surgery.

During my short stay at the hospital, personalized care by DOSS team was such that I felt more like a guest staying at a close relative’s house than a patient admitted in a hospital.

Back in my college days, my weight was 70 Kgs. At the time of my surgery it was 116 kgs. Now after a year, my weight is reduced to 75 kgs.

I feel so young and so light again.

I have resumed my karate coaching with great passion. I participate in every function without having to tackle any embarrassment. My energy levels are high and I am able to lead a normal life. Also, I am able to dress in fashionable clothes which is just fantastic.

I am a member of the gram Panchayat and able to execute my responsibilities efficiently. I feel confident. I feel great.

I truly am grateful to almighty who prompted me to attend the camp in Solapur. And I am so thankful to my Doctors for recommending this procedure to me. I have acquired a new life because of them and  I couldn’t be happier!
