I have always been heavy. I was diagnosed with PCOS shortly before I was to get married and was told I would never have children at the age of 20. After 4 1/2 years of trying, we finally had a precious girl. Over the years I gained even more weight and was ounces from 300 pounds. I knew I had to do something because I wanted to be a positive role model for my then 10 year old daughter. I had the sleeve surgery with Dr. Almanza in August 2015. Within 6 months I hit my weight goal and weighed 160 pounds! My OB/GYN told me that since I've lost alot of weight my PCOS was controlled and I could become more fertile. Well the next month I found out I was pregnant! No stressful fertility treatments or depression from the monthly negative pregnancy tests. Our miracle boy was on his way! He is now a happy, healthy 7 month old beautiful baby boy. This surgery has changed my life, for the positive, in so many ways. If I had to, I'd do it all over again with Dr. Almanza and his team. My husband is now wanting to have the surgery done with Dr. Almanza in December so we will be planning that soon! Thank you so very much for everything!
