In theory, I consider myself a super pro on weight loss, on losing and gaining weight J It’s because I struggled with my being overweight for 15 years.Läs hela historien
I gained and lost weight dozens of times: losing 10 kg, gaining 15 kg. I knew very well how to lose weight by using diet and sport. And I knew how to hold it. But my problem was laziness. As soon as I lost weight, I failed to hold it: to celebrate the loss, I ate a lot and gained weight back.
It was 7 years ago, when I heard first about the stomach reduction surgery in a TV program, where there were very fat people. For them, this surgery was vital.
I made a final decision to go for the stomach reduction to lose weight in this way in 2013, after I met and talked to a friend who had undergone this surgery at Dr. Kaur’s clinic.
After meeting her, I signed up for a consultation with Dr. Kaur. I was 26 then and I weighed somewhere around 125 kg, although I’m pretty tall, 180 cm.
The surgery was appointed on 13 January 2015. During the New Year night, I certainly ate well, but after that I told myself to stop. Enough. And since 1 January, my new life has begun.
What in this entire saga helped me a lot in making a decision was the communication with people, who had already undergone this surgery. I also read all the forums and all the information on this issue on the Internet.
A month after the surgery, I lost about 10 kg.
As a result, a year and a half after the surgery, I have 47 kg off and I feel wonderful!
Today I’m not a full-figured girl looking at slim guys and dreaming. Now I’m a beautiful and slender girl, doing sports!
Now, when I am eating, my eyes play a major role. I know visually how much food I can accommodate. So I eat accordingly. If I eat a little more, I feel bad: food gets stuck in my throat. But this happens rarely – I get used to it. I eat whatever I want, but bit by bit.
If earlier, under stress, I immediately sat down and ate, now it’s the other way around. I do not want to eat.
Frankly speaking, my fondness for sweets persists. But today 2 to 3 candies are enough – I just don’t want more.
I’m very happy that I decided to take this step and underwent this surgery! I can wholeheartedly advise it to everyone, who has extra weight and who tried all the other ways.
Recently had a mini gastric bypass under Dr. Ilmar Kaur. I found Dr. Kaur to be an outstanding surgeon. The treatment I received well under his care was excellent. I can not recommend him highly enough. From my initial contact with Kaire the coordinator, I knew I was going to be in good hands. I traveled from Ireland and was in Estonia for 5 days. The first night was spent in a nice hotel in the centre of Tallinn and remaining nights in a private room in a private clinic. I was met at the airport etc. Dr. Kaur speaks fluent English and checked in on my twice a day during my hospital stay. Outstanding.
I am 10 days post bypass revision surgery and l cannot thank Dr. Ilmar Kaur and his bariatrics team enough. I traveled on my own for the surgery and they took incredible care of me. I cannot believe how well l feel after surgery and traveling home was painless. My scars are tiny and even after 10 days almost invisible. I cannot recommend him highly enough he is at the top of his game as far as surgeons are concerned. Superb, from start to finish.
I recently had bariatric revision surgery in Tallinn, Estonia, organized through Bariatric Services. I chose this company to go with because of the speedy response to my initial inquiry and then the very professional and organized way in which everything was dealt with. Merle answered every question in detail in perfect EnglishLäs hela historien
explained what the different procedures might be and arranged for my mother to stay in the hotel while I was in Tallinn. The hotel had a supermarket a couple of minutes away and was only a few minutes walk from the Old Town for sightseeing. Merle met us at the airport as arranged and we were taken to the hotel for our overnight stay. The following morning we were picked up and taken to the hospital.
The surgeon Ilmar Kaur was there to greet us and explain exactly what would happen and when. His English was extremely good as were one or two of the nurses so there was no problem in getting information at every point. I had a private room and with the exception of the endoscopy, all the various tests were carried out in that room. Once he had seen what surgery was required it was carried out in the late afternoon and Dr. Kaur telephoned my mother immediately afterward to let her know how things had gone. He came in to see me at least twice every day and I could not fault his manner or his expertise. Additionally, because I had the malabsorption surgery he explained that in the rare event that I did not lose the expected amount of weight he would perform further surgery for me at no extra charge.
I was extremely happy with everything and am very grateful to Merle and Bariatric Services for arranging things for us so competently. I highly recommend them and would be happy to chat with anyone considering this service if they would like me to.
Fantastic hospital, great staff, a brilliant surgeon and Merle was there to make sure everything ran smoothly for us.

I contacted the surgery coordinator sometime around June 2017. I was able to arrange for two surgeries for my dad and myself. He had his surgery at the end of August and I had mine at the end of September. It was a great experience for both of us. The quality of care is outstanding. The doctor and the nursing team is great.Läs hela historien
I liked my hospital stay and was very appreciative of an amazing nursing care. I work in the healthcare and know the crucial role that nurse play in the patient’s care. This is world class standard.
There are a lot of parts of the process: initial consultation, travel and surgery arrangement, arrival, pre-surgical screening, surgery, post-surgical care and post-surgical screening which does not end after the departure. And each part was done smoothly, basically, we were dealing with a very competent group of people who know what they are doing.
I am very grateful to Dr. Ilmar Kaur and his team for everything they had done for me and my father. I am in a great physical shape. My quality of life, as well as my health, is improving dramatically. I would highly recommend them.
Thank you very much.
My history began 5 years ago when I was 30 years old. Early in life I was an active man and went in for sports a lot. There was nothing to pay much attention to except athletic injuries. My height is 199 cm and weight early in life was just about 105 kg what was ideal in view of the height.Läs hela historien
Since my 30 years, problems with health began to arise little by little. The first symptom was an increase of blood pressure and weariness. During the following couple of years, the weight gradually began to increase and health got worse. When the weight came to more than 125 kg, I decided to do something in order that the weight would decrease. I went to a doctor of diabetes. After a realized analysis, it had been found that blood sugar was out of norm and an urgent treatment was needed. It was 3.5 years ago and I was prescribed the peroral drug therapy. However it did not achieve expectable results, the health got worse still more, the weight increased and there was severe fatigue. The blood sugar was not stable, it varied all the time within the limits from 8 to 15. During those three years, I additionally tested various diets, significantly changed my customs to take meals but everything was useless.
A year ago the matter went so far that I was diagnosed diabetes of the second degree and prescribed insulinization. At that time I thought that there was no more salvation and everything went to death. I had to administer injections of insulin with various actions 5 times a day. Volumes were astronomical. During that year the weight reached more than 145 kg. Variation of the blood sugar forced to eat and the health did not allow it to continue in that way.
I gave up everything as lost and lived with the attitude “I live until I live” as some doctors told me.
I met with my good acquaintance and friend who told me about the operation which yielded very good results in case of such a disease and such symptoms. I got to know that bariatric operations were made in Tallinn and decided to go to a consultation. Having listened to a doctor, I quickly made a decision. I thought that I was given a new chance; there was a sensation of beginning of the new life hope for which should be seized.
My operation was carried out by Dr Ilmar Kaur in Tallinn in the beginning of 2017. From the moment when I emerged and got to know that everything was OK, I had not to be disappointed with anything. When I had the operation, I weighed 143 kg and administered the injections five times a day as before. From the first day after the operation, I had not to administer the injections any more and take other medicines (reducing blood pressure) except vitamins. The blood sugar was within the limits from 4.2 to 6.3 what is very good showing and at present the weight has been reduced up to 120 kg. I feel well and it seems as if I were born again. Helpings of my meal decreased noticeably but quality, undoubtedly, became better. I can eat so frequently as I want and the blood sugar does not force me to eat any more as it was in the past.
I visited my doctor of diabetes. After receipt of answers to new analyses, he said me that I was healthy and had a wonderful improvement! It seems to be a wonder but it is my reality. Everything seems to be excellent to a person who reads this letter but it is a matter of fact. For the present moment, I am very happy and satisfied with this result.
Once again, I would like to thank the medical man, Dr Ilmar Kaur, who was my surgeon and advised me this operation. I thank everybody who encouraged me and helped me. You should believe, wonders are not disappeared and chances are always available.
I wish You every success!
Jeg begynte å lette etter slankeoperasjoner for en stund siden og til slutt tok jeg initiativet til å besøke min lokal fedme klinikk for å bestilte en time, samt å få snakket med leger, anestesileger, ernæringsfysiologer, osv. Alle som skulle være involvert i operasjonen. Inntrykket jeg satt igjen med etter et møte med fedmeklinikken var mer eller mindre som en ku i en slakteri, men allikevel bestemte jeg meg for å ta operasjonen der basert på den informasjonen jeg hadde der og da. Når jeg ga opplysningene til min fastlege om dette var det han selv som anbefalte meg å ta operasjonen i utlandet.Läs hela historien
Jeg kontaktet forskjellige steder rundt om i Europe, til og med i Bariatric Services i Tallinn Estland. Merle (pasient koordinator) svarte på alle mine spørsmål og hvor hun ikke hadde svaret så fikk jeg dem dagen derpå. Når jeg gikk tom for flere spørsmål fattet jeg beslutningen min med å ta gastric sleeve hos Bariatric Services i Tallinn.
Merle hentet meg på flyplassen og kjørte meg til hotellet. Dagen etter kjørte hun meg til sykehuset hvor jeg fikk mitt egen rom inkludert bad, wifi, tv, osv. Sykepleieren tok blodprøver og jeg fikk treffet Dr. Ilmar Kaur som var min kirurg som gjennomgikk alle detaljene for inngrepet både de gode og de dårlige. Noe som gjorde meg trygg var at jeg bestemte meg for å ta operasjonen i et sykehus (Nord Estland Medisinske Senteret) og ikke i en klinikk, dette i tilfelle noe skulle skje og jeg måtte fraktes til et sykehus.
Sykepleierne tok så godt være på meg. Hver gang jeg trengte hjelp var de der med engang og jeg hadde aldri noe problemer med språket. Selvfølgelig har de aksent, men det har jeg også! vi forstå hverandre uten problem og det var aldri noe misforståelse på grunn av dette. Jeg ville understreke at Dr. Kaur besøkte meg hver eneste dag opptil to ganger om dagen for å se hvordan jeg hadde det. Jeg fikk også møte bariatric sykepleier (som er spesialist i slankeoperasjon) Kristen Janvest, hver dag mens jeg var der og hensikt var å få gode råd på hvordan jeg skulle forandre spisevanene mine, hun ga meg en mat plan som jeg skulle følge de dagene og ukene etter operasjon samt resten av livet mitt.
Til tross for at det har bare vært veldig få uker etter operasjonen min ville jeg gjerne gi min sterkeste anbefaling for Bariatric Services. Merle fortsetter å være en god kontaktperson samt sjekker og reporterer til legene på hvordan jeg har det og svarer på alle spørsmålene mine. Jeg ville også peke at mine medisiner har blitt redusert og blir sikkert fjern om noe uker maks en måned.
Jeg er takknemlig for hele erfaringen som jeg har opplevd samt vært én av de beste beslutninger som jeg har tatt i mitt liv.
Da jeg fant ut at jeg skulle ta Gastric bypass da var jeg usikker for det var så mange å velge i mellom på nettet og forskjellige priser. Men til syvende å sist så valgte jeg Tallinn etter jeg hadde sendt flere mailer og fikk positiv tilbake meldinger,bestemte jeg meg for å dra.Läs hela historien
Da jeg kom til Tallinn da blei jeg møtt av ei veldig hyggelig dame som het Merler og hun kjørte meg til et kjempe fint hotell rett ved flyplassen som jeg skulle overnatte til dagen etter.
Tirsdag morgen da blei jeg henta og kjørt til sykehuset,der fikk jeg ett eget rom meg eget bad og flatskjerm,veldig bra standard. Etter en stund fikk jeg hilse på kirurgen Ilmar som fortalte meg om hva som skulle skje.
klokka tre blei jeg kjørt ned for å opereres og alle var veldig hyggelige. Da jeg våknet opp da blei jeg kjørt opp på rommet mitt igjen og fikk beskjed om hvis jeg hadde no vondt så måtte jeg bare si fra så skulle jeg få smertestillende. sov til dagen etter og da var jeg i utrolig fin form jeg var øm men ingen uholbare smerter. Kirurgen var innom 2 ganger daglig og prata med meg. Jeg var der i 4 dager og betalte 50000 kr og det var verdt hver eneste krone. Hvis noen leser dette å vurderer å ta Gastric bypass så anbefaler jeg å kontakte Bariatric Services i Tallinn. Bra sykehus og veldig flinke leger. Etter jeg har kommet hjem jeg har vært hjemme i 9 dager og jeg har verken vært dårlig,ingen smerter. Hvis du lurer på no og trur at jeg akn være behjelpelig så send meg gjerne en mail:
Etter mye frem og tilbake, og mange tanker, samtaler med leger, forskjellige sykehuser bestemte jeg meg for en gastric bypass operasjon. men da jeg har for liten BMI og ingen følge sykdomer, måtte jeg betale det selv. Så gikk det litt mere tid til å google sykehus i utlande som tilbyr denne operasjon. Og hvilke prisklasser de hadde. Etter mange mail frem og tilbake til forskjellige sykehus,falt valget mitt på Bariatric Services. Og jeg har ikke angret.
