Celia – Gastric Sleeve Success

Hi my name is Celia Rolling and I wanted to tell you about the surgery that I had through the bariatric center at Flowers Hospital. Dr. Scott Robbins performed the gastric sleeve surgery on me March 31st, 2014. Just a few months ago I weighed 287 pounds and now I weigh 197. I’ve lost a total of 90 pounds and I’ve gone down five sizes, from a 26 to a size 16 now. I’ve been over 200 pounds for about 15 years, and the determining factor was my family history and my children. So I talked to my regular physician about it and about three months before my surgery, and he knew about my family history and I was already on the same trail as they were because I had high blood pressure myself, high cholesterol, sleep apnea and just tired all the time.

I have an 8 year old and a 13 year old, and I felt like if I didn’t do something for my life to get it in order that they may not have me around for when they need me the most. For now I would just like to tell you if your considering something like that this it has been a wonderful decision for me, and for those others who I’ve consulted with about it I’m just so glad I’ve made this change in my life.
