  • It’s important to stay hydrated and drink an adequate amount of water. Again, follow your doctor’s instructions on the best way to consume liquids.
  • You can return to work after 1 to 2 weeks. You will probably feel less energetic for some time after surgery so it is important to take it slow.

I have to say from the first email to the discharge day I couldn't recommend a clinic and surgeon more. to have the procedure done by Dr. Kowalski, who does 10 or more surgeries a week is something you won't find in Ireland.

I am a nurse from Ireland and was totally abandoned by my the Irish health system. I started to research travelling abroad for a sleeve as was 3 years on Irish waiting list. I have to say from the first email to the discharge day I couldn't recommend a clinic and surgeon more. to have the procedure done by Dr. Kowalski, who does 10 or more surgeries a week is something you won't find in Ireland. And the recovery is so fast due to their excellent care and knowledge. I am 10 days post op and 14kg down since starting pre op. KCM and Dr. Kowalski have given me my life back and I'm thankful every day I found them

I could not be more pleased with everything at this clinic. Dr. Budzyznki sat down with me and explained everything, he answered all my questions clearly and made sure I was comfortable and ready for surgery.

After a recommendation from my niece, I decided to take the plunge and make a change for myself. I booked in for a gastric sleeve with Dr. Budzynski at KCM Clinic in Wroclaw. I could not be more pleased with everything at this clinic. Dr. Budzyznki sat down with me and explained everything, he answered all my questions clearly and made sure I was comfortable and ready for surgery. After the procedure, he came to check up on me and see how I was doing. The team of nurses and international coordinators were also amazing. They truly care about you at KCM Clinic. I would recommend Dr. Budzynski and his team at KCM to anybody looking for kind, professional and thoughtful team for their bariatric surgery.

This clinic literally has changed my life.. I'm 6 weeks out hernia and sleeve repair and have already lost over 2 stone.

This clinic literally has changed my life.. I'm 6 weeks out hernia and sleeve repair and have already lost over 2 stone. The support from arrival to departure can't be faulted... great clinic and doctor, very clean and there is two beds in each room should you want to take someone with you !! They do extensive tests pre surgery to make sure everything's ok and that's when I discovered I had a Hiatal hernia which my surgeon Dr. Budzynski repaired for free !! Located in a beautiful polish town in a stunning valley which is a bonus ! ! Experience was a positive one and I highly recommend Dr. Budzynski and KCM to anyone.

From being met at the airport to the return trip, everything was superb! I was very pleased with Shaz and, therefore, with Qunomedical.

I had Gastric Sleeve surgery on the 8th of July, 2017. From being met at the airport to the return trip, everything was superb! Marion, my driver was so sweet! He took us to see a village with three castles! Martin, a member of staff who was in charge of seeing that patients get where they are supposed to be and SO much more, was welcoming, friendly and did everything and more to make sure I was taken care of. Martyna was very kind and couldn't do enough to make everything more than okay for me. Their English is excellent which was very helpful. The nurses were lovely, friendly and helpful, too. The cardiologist was brilliant. An intelligent, beautiful lady that exuded intelligence and kindness. She was always there if needed. The surgeon was informative and put me at ease. He checked on me many times after the surgery. Philip is on the admin side of the clinic and answered all of my emails pre- and post-op so quickly and came and introduced himself to us before we left hospital. I can't fault this clinic. I was told aftercare is not limited to three or five years, they are available to us as long as we need them. I suppose the one thing I might suggest is go in cooler weather, July was HOT and no air conditioning!! Fom the first email, Shaz with Qunomedical was friendly, understanding and professional. He answered my emails extremely quickly. I was very pleased with Shaz and, therefore, with Qunomedical.

Dr. Major discussed the procedure with me beforehand and I felt very comfortable with him and reassured

Had a gastric sleeve done end of February 8st 1/2 down already. What a super clinic and an amazing surgeon named Dr. Major. He discussed the procedure with me beforehand and I felt very comfortable with him and reassured. I definitely recommend dr. Major and KCM Clinic to anyone. They are highly professional.

A lady called Julia was the best, she has been in contact with me from the start - Treatment quality and service were better than what I would get at home.

I was met from the airport, taken straight to clinic for blood test, then was taken to the hotel. In the morning I was picked up and taken back to clinic where I had every test you could think of and more, already for my surgery. After surgery of gastric sleeve, the staff was excellent, the nurses work very hard to make your stay comfortable, my scars are very neat, I didn't/don't have any pain at all, bloody brilliant, would defo use them again that's for sure. Oh a lady called Julia was the best, she has been in contact with me from the start, and still is, thank you Julia for being there for me. Treatment quality and service were better than what I would get at home.
