Where do I start, first of all giving GOD ALL THE GLORY. Thank u LORD for Dr. Christopher Sanborn and his team. This survey was the best ever could have happened to my life, my health was going DOWN. My surgery was in September 2017 my start weight was 265 my weight now is 147 no med but my water pill and vitamins if u only knew the MEDS alone I were on. I just enjoyed getting to know the new me, because it all will be NEW in the beginning but just in brace it, loving the new u. It’s like this has been my life all my life and I’m not letting go.
Thanks again Erlanger Metabolic Bariatric Surgery Center
GIVING PEOPLE A NEW BEGINNING
Thank you for sharing your inspiring story, Walita!
What a difference 3 years makes. Prior to my gastric bypass I was short of breath with very little exertion. I had high blood pressure and constant low back pain.
Fast forward 3 years and I am no longer short of breath or suffer from back pain. My blood pressure is normal with no medications. I have run several 5K races and placed first in my age group. I am a have a normal BMI and am not embarrassed to step on a scale.
My quality of life is so much better. I enjoy buying clothes that aren’t plus sizes. Exercise has become a very important part of my life and I look forward to being and staying healthy
Thank you Dr Sandborn and your staff for being there with me through my incredible journey
Wow, Judith! Thank you for sharing your inspiring story and congratulations on all of your hard work.
Thank you Dr. Cronk and the whole team. On Sept 2017 I weighted 284. All kinds of meds. Had surgery on April 17 2018. Today, May 6 2019 I weigh 149. No meds besides vitamins. My life has changed for the better.
