Mr Rink has given me back my mobility and health. For that I am eternally grateful. I had a gastric bypass at the end of June 2016 which has been life changing. I have lost 78% of my excess weight in just six months. My heaviest weight was 20st 4lbs and I now weigh 12st 4lbs Mr Rink and his team Bryony, Hayley and Viv are so supportive, kind, caring and non judgmental. Thank you all for your continued help and support.
What can I say thank god for my sleeve. Mr Rink and his team are amazing. Mr Rink said it would be better for me due to my size to go down the path of having a balloon first as the antheastist was worried about putting me under for such a long time I weighed 189kg at this point so I had the balloon fitted 21/01/16 I lost 41kg by the time I had my sleeve 28/7/16, I have lost 74.8kg upto today 3/1/17 i'm very pleased with my progress as is Mr Rink and his team. I would also like to thank them all very much for the support they have given me. Any problems they have been at the end of the phone or email giving me the answers and if they don't know they will go away and find out, and nothing is too much trouble Big thanks to Mr Rink, Viv, Hayley and Briony geat team.
Mr rink is one of the nicest man I have ever met. He's down to earth and very caring. I was a unique case and Mr rink never gave up on me. He took many risks and after many attempts I had my sleeve. This man saved my life and I owe so much to him
