Denise's Story

Denise
Lost 100 pounds
Before: 240 pounds; Now: 140 pounds

My life 21 months ago was very different than my life today. I weighed 240 pounds. I had hypertension, sleep apnea, diabetes, high cholesterol, chronic back pain and a heart catheter. I was unable to walk long distances without getting short of breath.

Daily activities were a problem. I did not go out much. I was so disgusted with myself. I tried multiple times to lose weight, only to get frustrated. I gained whatever weight I had lost back, plus another 20 pounds.

This surgery was my last chance at losing the weight. I researched my options and made sure I was in the right frame of mind. I could not fail again. Dr. Wohaibi and his staff assisted me with regaining my life. It was the tool I needed to get the weight off. It was not easy, but it was needed so I could enjoy my life again.

It has been 21 months since my surgery. I have lost 100 pounds. I can walk long distances, ride my bike and most importantly, I can play with my grandchildren. I enjoy life. Going shopping is fun again.

I now eat healthy and the dietitian has helped me understand the importance of and how to eat healthy.

Everyone on staff had and has an important role in my life change, and they are still there if I have any problems. It is one of the best decisions I have made.
