I am 36 years old and single. My elder brother and father were Type 2 diabetic. Therefore, I had my blood tests analyzed every year. However, I realized that those tests have showed tendency to deterioration in past 3 years.  I thought that I should defeat this adverse course, since occurrence of insulin resistance was highly probable and I may become diabetic in the rest of my life in the light of test results. I immediately decided to undergo obesity surgery to lose weight. 

 Next, I visited Prof. Alp Gürkan, M.D., Obesity Surgeon, at Medicana Çamlıca Hospital.  After I discussed this surgery with Prof. Alp Gürkan, I underwent surgery intently on my birthday without need to search for any other healthcare facility. I preferred my birthday as it would be my best birthday present.  Although the first night was really difficult, I felt very good when I woke up in the next morning and I was happy that I underwent it.

Although I had no difficulty in my social life due to being overweight, I lost weight and got rid of health problems at the same time with this surgery.   Now, I feel very good and continue my work life as head teacher of kindergarten.
