“August of 2010 my primary Dr told me I was diabetic and if I did not lose weight in a few months he would put me on medication for it. I was allready on high blood pressure medicine for two years and had been overweight all of my life. The next three months I gained weight. I needed help and in January I went to the Surgical Intensivists seminar and made the first step to save my life. March 2011 I had my gastric sleeve surgery with Dr Cerabona.
Surgery was the best tool I could give myself to lose the weight and feel like I am part of this world again. No more high blood pressure medicine and I am no longer diabetic. I jogged a 5k last summer, ride roller coasters with my nephew, go Zip Lining, hike, bike and shop in normal size clothing stores. I have more energy, self worth and never get tired of people telling me it’s nice to see me smiling again.”
