Who was Khelisyah Ashamu?

Romford IT professional Khelisyah Ashamu, 26, died in Izmir on February 9, 2019, the East London Coroner’s Court heard.

Mom Khelisyah Ashamu died just a week after going under the knife

He traveled to Turkey for a gastric bypass

Her son Cairo was only 11 months old at the time of her death, the inquest heard.

Khelisyah traveled to Ekol Hospital to undergo the weight loss operation after booking it through Get Slim, a Turkey-based company owned by two British citizens.

The inquest heard that Khelisyah underwent the surgery less than a year after giving birth to her child.

Statement

In a statement, her father, Oyebanji Ashamu, said he warned her not to have the procedure done so soon after giving birth.

He said: “I was against her having the surgery. Her baby was not yet a year old.”

However, she told him that the surgery was cheap and that many people went.

He said, “I asked her to look after her child. I didn’t feel comfortable with that at all. She told me not to worry about her and that all her friends were going to go.”

And he added: “All her friends came back, she was the only one who didn’t come back.”

Tracey Ozdemir, one of the owners of Get Slim, addressed the investigation.

She said that she created the company after undergoing gastric surgery. She said that Get Slim operates as a booking service.

Investigation

In a post-investigation statement, Khelisyah’s parents said losing a child is every parent’s worst nightmare.

“We never imagined when we saw Khelisyah travel to Turkey, so we thought it was a routine operation, that we would never see her alive again.

She “she was an amazing young woman, with a great career, a young son and everything to live for. Three years later, it is still hard to accept that she will never walk through the door or that her son whom she loved so much will not have the opportunity to meet her wonderful mother.

“Our grandson is a living memory of her mother, which brings us a lot of comfort, but it is devastating that he does not remember her mother because she was only 11 months old when she left and never came back. We have to tell him how much her mother loved him. She would be very proud to see how she has changed from a little baby to a good boy.

“Having to go through the investigation was horrible, but necessary to investigate what happened. We will continue to work with our attorneys to try to get to the truth about how our beautiful daughter died.

“It’s hard not to think that things could have been so different and we can only hope that others think twice about scheduling surgical procedures abroad.”

It connects British and Irish travelers with surgeons willing to perform weight loss operations in Turkey.

Ozdemir explained that 98 percent of her clients opt for gastric sleeves, but Khelisyah opted for gastric bypass surgery.

She said that a gastric bypass is not more complicated, but it has a life-changing impact on the patient.

She told the inquiry: “It’s not about the surgeon not being able to do it, it’s about the life changes that need to be made.”

Patients come to her because they may end up waiting seven years on the NHS or pay £12,000 if they go private in the UK.

In Turkey, the operation costs just £3,000.

The investigation heard that Get Slim does not require patients to share their medical records from their GPs.

Ozdemir said: “We don’t ask for the full medical history from their GPs.

Career

She was remembered for being an ‘incredible young woman, with a great career, a young son and everything to live for’
Instead, patients must have full medical consultations with doctors in Turkey.

“The surgeon reviews the full medical history with them, but he trusts them to tell the truth,” she added.

Khelisyah’s surgery was performed by Dr. Ismail Aman.

Speaking via video link from Turkey, Dr. Aman told the investigation that he had performed 4,000 bariatric surgeries in the past five years, but only one in 100 of them was a gastric bypass.

He said that he advised Khelisyah to have a gastric sleeve operation as the surgery was quicker and safer.

However, she refused; instead, she requested a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

She was asked what reason she gave for wanting to have gastric bypass.

“She told us that she had done the research and with a bypass she is not going to gain weight,” she said.

The court heard that gastric bypass works by separating the upper part of the stomach from the lower part.

The upper part then joins the small intestine, bypassing the lower part of the stomach. This decreases the patient’s appetite.

However, this leads to long term side effects such as B12 and iron deficiencies.

Dr. Aman said

Dr. Aman said that he told Khelisyah that the mortality risk was one to two and a half in a thousand.

He said: “The usual complications are bleeding, pulmonary embolism and anesthetic complications.”

The court heard that Khelisyah had two operations.

The first operation was for gastric bypass on February 2, while the second, on February 3, was to make some adjustments to the bypass after a routine scan of his abdomen.

The court heard that 30 minutes after the second operation, Khelisyah went into cardiac arrest.

She was placed in a medically induced coma on February 3 and was declared brain dead three days later on February 6.

She was taken off life support and pronounced dead on February 9.

In her conclusion, Coroner Dr. Shirley Radcliffe said the cause of Khelisyah’s cardiac arrest remained unclear.

However, she concluded that she died as a result of complications from a surgical procedure.

In a post-investigation statement, Khelisyah’s parents said losing a child is every parent’s worst nightmare.

“We never imagined when we saw Khelisyah travel to Turkey, so we thought it was a routine operation, that we would never see her alive again.

She “she was an amazing young woman, with a great career, a young son and everything to live for. Three years later, it is still hard to accept that she will never walk through the door or that her son whom she loved so much will not have the opportunity to meet her wonderful mother.
