*I truly believe that I have a second chance at life now because of having this surgery done.It saved my life in more ways than 1.
-I am only 32yrs old and weighed close to 293lbs October 01st, 2012 just one week prior to surgery. I was experiencing headaches and extreme back pain due to a MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) 4 years previous.
I now from an 80% reduction in overall pain. 10 months later weigh 177lbs. (I have not weighed that since I was 16)I am no longer battling depression as a symptom from pain and hopelessness.
I have a new lease on life, I fell blessed and alive. I feel I am a better parent as I have more energy and I am able to be a more active participant in their upbringing and activities.My oldest was 5, and youngest was 1yr at time of surgery.
I have quit my hateful fast food industry manager position and now work a more friendly laid back rewarding job. I have gained back my self esteem, and pride.
I feel like It has made a difference in EVERY aspect of my life for the better. I am sure that my husband of 13 years has no complaints either.
Every aspect of my life has changed! Thank YOU!
