Hi, my name is Chantel I was 24 years old when I had the gastric sleeve procedure. At the time of the surgery I was 249lbs wearing pant sizes from 16-20. I was struggling with my weight since I was a sophomore in High School and it got worse in college. I tried every diet you can name, losing weight from time to time but always gaining it back double. So in 2010 I visited Jerusalem Hospital for the first time where I got the lipo procedure although the doctor recommended the Sleeve. Not having any knowledge of it I declined but after gaining the weight back I knew I had to research and think of a permanent solution. So I decided to get the sleeve and it has changed my life forever physically and emotionally when it was difficult to adjust at the beginning I second guessed and also had a slight regret shortly after 2 weeks noticing the change, I look great and feel good I still can't believe the skin I'm in and I love it. I am now 159 and it hasnt even been a year and I wear pant sizes 7 and 9 AWESOME!!! Awesome just like the doctors and the staff of Jerusalem I will tell anyone considering if my experiences and will never wish to have it any way!!! Thank You Jerusalem Hospital y'all took part if my life changing experience.
