My Story

My life before the procedure was very difficult, frankly miserable. I couldn’t get out of bed in the morning, it hurt to sleep, it hurt to move. I had diabetes, I had high blood pressure, I had sleep apnea. I was a wreck and probably very close to dying. I had great jobs in the past. I have a great family, great wife and kids, but I never really felt successful because I felt horrible physically and emotionally my confidence I had none, I didn’t feel like I was worth much.

My life now is incredible. I’ve lost over 100 lbs. I’m off of medications - four medications that I was on that I’m no longer on. I can approach people now, I don’t feel like they are looking at me and thinking; who is this fat guy? They see me for who I am, I feel like people respect me more because I have lost the weight. 

It’s just been great. I couldn’t have had a smoother better experience than I had.
