Surgery has COMPLETLY changed my life! As I tried diet after diet, but gained more and more weight over the years, I became kind of recluse. The only time I went out was when it was completely necessary: work, grocery store, vet, etc., and even then I prayed I wouldn’t run into anyone I knew. I was just so embarrassed at my weight and felt everyone was looking at me or judging me. Probably not true, but I felt so uncomfortable. My husband and I were invited to many dinners, to friend’s houses, and I always made up some kind of excuse and declined. I am so sad at all the fun times I turned down. Now, 7 months after surgery, I am a completely different person. I am LOOKING for places to go and things to do, I feel amazing, and my only regret is not doing this earlier. I spent so many years avoiding my life. Another change is that food used to control my life mentally. It was always a battle in my head over whether I should eat something or not, how much I should eat. It was absolutely exhausting. Now, while I still plan my meals and work to eat healthy foods, it is not all-consuming in my mind anymore. My brain is now free for the million other things more important in life!

Surgery has changed my life in many, many ways. I’m no longer on any medications for high blood pressure, asthma or acid reflux. My health has improved incredibly. My physical life has changed as well prior to surgery I couldn’t walk on a treadmill for 5 minutes without giving out. Now I’m exercising daily and completed my first 5 k within record time. This has been one of the best decisions in my life. Cherlette.
Surgery has changed my life in a big way. I had type II diabetes and less than 1 month after surgery I was able to get off insulin and the diabetic pills. Also in the past several months I had my thyroid medication decreased twice and I have no need for my hypertension medication. I feel better and I do much more. Terry
