I had the gastric sleeve done in Mexico, with Dr. Almanza, about 2 years ago. I weighed 220 pounds and was completely miserble, I could not walk for 5 minutes before breaking out in a sweat, and not a femine glow type of sweat I mean a wet hair, shirt, and seat of pants type of gross experience. My students would always try to hug me on passing, and I would shy away, (I deal with children that have been rejected on so many levels in their lives), so this was a big problem. My feet hurt, my back hurt, high blood pressure, pre-diabetic and I sat and ate at my problems on most occassions. I decided to make a change, and after have my procedure I am now actively working out in a Gym, well not as much as I should, I currently weigh 169 pounds and wearing a size 10 loosely. So I am very happy about that. I had gotten down to a size 6, but stopped my regiment and began college, I do plan to get back in the gym, to get thoses pounds down, to maybe a size 8, my life has definetly improved. New job, about to graduate from college with my 2nd degree, and a vey happy spouse of 14 years, he lucked up a got a super model girlfriend, ME!,, I look and feel great. My complaint, I do have a serious hiatal hernia, this is the shape of the tummy after the procedure, and it took some time to manage it. I will forever be on Nexium for acid reflux, I am a night eater, and several times I awoke asphixating on my tummy contents, much of it did get into my lungs, and I had a mild case of pnuemonia, after I recovered, I took it serious to not eat 2 hours prior to going to bed. Now everything is fine, and I am happy.
