James' Story - Gastric Sleeve
Surgery: Sleeve Gastrectomy - Total Lost So Far: 102 pounds*
"Thank you Dr. Chen." —James
When I was 23 years old, I hurt my back at work. By the time I was 26, I have had 2 surgeries on my lower back. I have had a problem with my weight and my biggest weight was 320 pounds. Then as the years go on, I had 4 more surgeries and 2 of them were for medical implants.
Then my doctor asked me if I wanted weight loss surgery and I said yes. 9 months later I stopped all my pain meds and I have lost 95 pounds. Surgeries at UCLA COMET program helped me with my weight loss. Thank you Dr. Chen.
