Roland's Story

Lost 120 pounds and still losing

A couple of years after high school I was in a bad car accident that left me with constant leg and knee pain. As the years passed I found myself slowly gaining weight. I was constantly tired and suffered from extreme pain and discomfort.  

At 36 years old I was hospitalized for high blood pressure and had to have a heart catheterization procedure. I can’t tell you how many times I heard, “You’re too young” while I was in the hospital. It was then that I decided to search for a more permanent weight loss method.  

I’ve tried many diets in the past, but after a few pounds were lost, more weight was gained. After a few months I attended one of Covenant’s Bariatric Seminars and learned about the Gastric Sleeve procedure. Dr. Ringley and his staff helped make the choice easy for me. I made the choice to live healthy and to get my life back.

Every day I wake up and look at the faces of my three daughters, and I have absolutely no regrets about my decision to have the surgery. My sleep apnea is gone, my blood pressure is normal, and my knees could not feel any better. If I could do everything all over again, I wouldn’t have waited so long to have the bariatric procedure.
