Susan – Gastric Band Success

susan-sI have lost over 100 pounds after Lap Band surgery. I’ve struggled with my weight most of my adult life. I’ve tried every diet and pill ever made. I’ve lost a few pounds but always gained more weight back than I have lost.

My health was declining. I had sleep apnea, high blood pressure and most of my joints hurt all the time. I went to the seminar and the doctors and staff at the Bariatric Center were great. They answered all my questions and all of my concerns.

A few months passed but I still wasn’t ready for surgery, or at least didn’t think I was ready. So I read some blogs and did some more research and I decided that the lap band surgery was right for me.

In July of 2012, I had the surgery and now I really don’t know why I waited as long as did. It’s been the best thing that’s happened to me in my adult life. I can play with my grandkids and do things with them that I couldn’t do with my own kids as they were growing up.

I no longer have health problems and I owe most of that to the people at the Flowers Bariatric Center because they were so supportive and gave me the guidance I needed.
