Despite visiting a number of hospitals and doctors in her country, there was no improvement. She finally decided to travel to Sagar Hospital, Jayanagar as a last resort.

First, under the guidance of dietician Veena, the Cameroon resident could reduce her weight by 8 kg (she was now weighing 108 kg). Then, a specialist team headed by Dr Niranjan (Consultant General, GI, Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgeon) conducted bariatric surgery and helped her reduce three more kgs. Thankfully, now, her blood sugar level is completely under control. Dr Niranjan said, "There are many who undergo cosmetic surgeries to reduce fat.

I also thank Dr Kala for taking the bold decision of travelling from Cameroon to India for weight reduction and she is completely fine."
