This week, we celebrate the successful Weight loss of Carol Meyer
Here’s her story:
Carol lost 10kg after she had a Gastric Balloon procedure followed by WLSA 12 month Lifestyle Modification program. Now, she’s able to move around a lot more especially with her grandson. She can run 5km non-stop and has even competed in an event since then.
Watch the video to learn about Carol’s journey so far.
Carol has worked with WeightLoss Solutions Australia (WLSA) for the last 15 years. Carol is a registered nurse who joined the practice originally to consult with patients who were contemplating undergoing laparoscopic gastric banding. She also provided follow-up to patients regularly to ensure they were progressing well with their weight loss and assessed their need for band adjustments. During her time as the practice nurse, she and the clinic’s dietitian wrote an abstract regarding the follow up of weight loss surgery patients, which was later presented at the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery conference in Boston, USA.
Carol’s role has changed over the years and she has moved into a more administrative role, managing enquiries from prospective patients interested in weight loss or general surgery procedures. Her nursing experience in this industry gives her insight into troubleshooting for patients pre and post-surgery; and, she is equipped to direct them to the most appropriate consultant for further management.
Carol has significant experience in her administration role, which includes assisting patients to access their superannuation for funding their surgery. Often the first port of call for patients, Carol’s experience, knowledge, and care goes a long way to helping patients get their weight loss journey off to the right start.
On a personal note, Carol is the go-to person for the Orbera Intragastric Balloon having undergone the procedure herself in 2013. Since that time she has learnt to run and has competed in a 5 km team event with WLSA in 2014. With new things happening all the time, she is always looking for the next adventure.
