Surgery: Sleeve Gastrectomy - Age 35, Total Lost: 91 pounds lost so far*
"I truly feel like I got another chance at life!" —Sarah
Before my sleeve gastrectomy surgery, I struggled with simple tasks like walking and bending over. I was also a borderline diabetic, with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I was on multiple medications and felt unhealthy.
I decided to talk to my family doctor about my options to help me lose weight. She referred me to the COMET program and I could not have been happier. I have been able to lose more than 90 pounds and feel like I can do anything without limitations. It has been the best decision of my life! All my bloodwork is normal, and I don't need any medications anymore. I truly feel like I got another chance at life! The team at COMET has been so supportive and informative. Dr. Chen was always available to answer my questions. The dietitians have been great support and have a wealth of information.
Thank you UCLA!
