Amethyst is our latest patient to undergo lifesaving surgery for reproductive issues. During last month's impromptu rescue of 340 ex-battery hens, she was one of the dozens of intakes flagged for medial issues. Yesterday, she finally made it to the top of our medical wait list and into our vet’s office to check out the small, hard mass detected in her abdomen. In today's surgery, a rotting egg yolk (ectopic ovulation) was found floating freely in her abdominal cavity. Thanks to the patience and compassion of our wonderful vet, Dr. Bart, and his staff, she is home tonight recovering and has a bright future ahead.
This week, we celebrate the successful WeightLoss of Wayne Sills. Here’s his story:
I had my sleeve done on the 2nd December 2016, I was weighing 186kg, had just left a job that I was in for 15 years and decided that it was time to do something for myself and look after my health before it was too late, as I have a lot of things that run in the family health wise.
I am now almost 8 months post op and have lost 73kg and am loving life again. It has made life so much easier day to day and just the small things like putting socks on used to be a struggle but now is no dramas at all. I have been really lucky as I have had nothing go wrong and have settled into a very nice routine now.
I can honestly say this is the best thing that I have ever done and it has changed my life so much that I feel like a totally different person now. I still walk past a mirror and see a big bloke but my mind is slowly catching up with the body.
The only regret that I have is that I didn’t do this a lot sooner to be honest!
