Couple Gains Family from Min-Sheng Hospital's Weight Reduction Surgery
Stephen and Susan knew that Bariatric Surgery could help with their weight problems. At the time they chose to have their weight reduction surgery procedures they did not realize how much it would change their lives.
Stephen is 32 years old and lives in Taichung. For business reasons, he needs to frequently drive to Taipei or to Taoyuan and return the same day. The long drives and lack of exercise were factors that fueled his weight gain. His weight reached 107 kg with a BMI as high as 36 (normal BMI ranges from 18-24). Hoping to improve his health, Stephen decided to consider surgery as an option. Through extensive research on the internet, he acquired direct knowledge from actual patient experiences, as well as media reports about weight loss surgery, and even learned the quality of surgical equipment needed for these procedures. Finally, in 2005, Steven decided to have endoscopic gastric bypass surgery at Min-Sheng General Hospital, Taoyuan, Taiwan. The surgery was performed by Professor Wei-Jei Lee, the leader of surgical weight reduction in the Asia-Pacific area who has performed over 1900 weight reduction surgeries.
With her weight at 95 kg and BMI values as high as 38, Susan from Taipei, had been limited by her weight problems for years. Her weight made day-to-day life and work difficult and had not been able to attract a boy friend. She tried many different methods to lose weight, but none of the methods had been successful. In 2006, Susan chose Min-Sheng to receive weight loss surgery and started a different life.
In Susan's return to the hospital for aftercare, she met Stephen, who has experienced the same weight reduction surgery. Similar recovery circumstances became their favorite conversation topic and also triggered the growth of their romantic relationship.
As Stephen's and Susan's life-long partner, Min-Sheng General Hospital continues to provide support and instruction after their surgeries. Both of them attended the post-operative follow-up for a year. Stephen's weight has decreased from 107 kg to 75 kg and Susan's decreased from 95 kg to 60 kg. Their health has greatly improved and their lives have changed.
In May of 2007, surrounded by family and friends, including Dr. Wei-Jei Lee, Stephen and Susan got married, and Susan will be a mother in the summer of 2008.
