The Murzoglu family living in Germany underwent surgery in Turkey to get rid of obesity. Saifuddin Murzolu, whose daughter, wife and himself had undergone surgery, said, “You may not believe, I was already eating less. We were thinking of my only daughter, we were in our condition too, I reached 125-126. Kilo. We said, let’s go together and get it done. Plus we decided to have surgery here because it developed.
The Murzolu family living in Germany began research on a medical procedure for their excess weight. The parents, who have 2 children, have decided to perform gastric reduction surgery on their 20-year-old daughter Sohra Murzolu due to a genetic disease. The family, who were researching the colon for surgery, went online. Dr. He contacted Ömer Avmalı and reported the tests. Dr. After meeting with Avmali, the family decided that their daughter would be operated on in Turkey. Meanwhile, the Ilem and Sefuddin Murzolu couple decided to have surgery on their daughter because they too were obese. When the family was going to Turkey, Op. Dr. Om Hunted and his team also started preparations. After testing in Turkey, it was determined that all three of them were fit for surgery, while mother Ilem, father Sefuddin, and their daughter Suhra Murzolu underwent surgery in sequence. To talk about successful operations, op. Dr. Ömer Avmalı reminds that Turkey is the first in Europe in terms of obesity and has drawn attention to the importance of exercise and healthy eating.
General Surgery Specialist and. Dr. Om Avmali, with information about their situation, said, “These three have a special condition. Mother, father and daughter have undergone surgery. They live in Cologne, Germany. We watched each other for about 1.5-2 months. They told us about their physical condition. We have proven that there is an obesity disease and we have seen that there are many problems related to obesity. We invited them to Istanbul. We operate on 3 members of the same family, the daughters occupy the first place, then we finish the mother and father. We did not feel any complication or disagreement. The work with bariatric surgery is not over, in fact, it has just begun, we have undergone a great adventure and life-changing first step in surgery. Hope for a more comfortable and long life will wait for them. All of them were on the verge of sick obesity and some obesity-related diseases started. We have decided on the surgical procedure. Gastric balloon was not suitable for these patients. We had sleeve gastrectomy, gastric reduction surgery. Through these surgeries, we will protect them from obesity and obesity-related chronic diseases.‘He said.
Noting that Turkey’s report against obesity is not good, there should be an end to inactivity and negative eating habits, Op. Dr. Hunted “Our country is at the forefront of obesity in Europe and needs to be careful not only with surgery but also with lifestyle changes, exercise, dietitian control, proper nutrition and movement. As a country, we must do everything we can to overcome this problem so that obese genes are not passed on to the next generation. The food has shrunk but the calories have increased, with everything in the package. Hopefully we’ll fix that. I think we need to get rid of this problem before we catch diseases like obesity and obesity-related diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea. I’m fat but healthy, nothing like that‘He said.
Describing the operation process, 42-year-old Eylem Murzoglu said, “We actually came here only on the recommendation of a friend. My husband and my child were overweight, we tried a diet, but we couldn’t. Together we have decided on this approach. I was at the top 100 kg, I had pain in my joint. I didn’t have a sleep pattern, I had a mental problem. When I went to a store, I couldn’t buy and wear what I wanted. I was terrified of everyone, at first we panicked, everyone asked us what would happen, “who will take care of you”, all three of you are undergoing surgery. We have no choice but to look at each other. For my daughter, she’s small, there’s a limit to what she can do, she can’t do it. She didn’t try much, but from now on I call her new life, new life.Said
Sefuddin Murzolu, 47, who works as an auto mechanic in Germany, said they first thought about their daughter’s surgery and then his wife and he decided to have the surgery.I told it to my daughter, she didn’t come very well at first, then she looked up and said, ‘OK, let’s be daddy’. We were thinking of my only daughter. Then we said we have to go next to this baby, we have to go, our condition is clear, we weigh a lot. Our problems will increase and age will increase. When we were ready, we said let’s go. I once reached 125-126 kg. In fact, if I were to tell you now, you might not believe me, I was already eating less. Once the weight is stable, it is very difficult to lose. We said when we’re here, let’s go together, let’s get it done, let’s not come. At first I didn’t know how it would turn out, but I’m glad I did. This phenomenon is not very developed there. We decided to come here because there is more experience here because it is more developed in Turkey.‘He said.
Suhra Murzoulu, 20, said her mother and father also helped her overcome her fear of surgery.Before I came here, I was very excited, we were excited, but a few months ago she was a friend of mine. He told me, ‘If you are confident in yourself, do it’, I was not too confident. We decided, we said there is no other way. I am not alone, with them we will become weak. We wanted to do surgery here, there is more experience in this place. This is going to be me first, and I was wondering if I should do it. When my mom and dad decided to be my dad, I felt even more reassured, I said I could do it. My maximum weight was 100 kg, I think the hardest thing was I had shortness of breath while climbing the stairs. If people are suffering from obesity, I would recommend them to start treatment early because we did it late, we are in this time.‘He said.
