Surgery: Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass - Total Lost: 115 pounds*
"This surgery has completely changed my life." —Deb
At my highest weight, I was 270 pounds. I tried many different weight loss programs, but would lose 10-15 pounds before getting discouraged.
I have Multiple Sclerosis, and had high blood pressure, sleep apnea and a history of diabetes in my family. Eventually, I was certain I would have become diabetic. One day, I was walking a few blocks with co-workers and they were easily talking and laughing, while I was struggling to keep up and breathe.
That’s when I decided to get a consult for bariatric surgery. The staff was great and I decided that this was definitely the path for me. Within six months I was down 115 pounds, and now I feel like a new person. The diet was easy to adjust to, and now I follow a meal plan along with a happy and healthy lifestyle.
This surgery has completely changed my life. If I knew just how much, I would have done it sooner!
