I have several friends who have had gastric bypasses and I had always been somewhat hesitant about this. I have lost weight and gained it every since I have been out of high school. Over the year prior to surgery I had progressively gained weight over 100 lbs. I had also gone threw a divorce and didn't want to stay like this forever. I had been to every doctor possible to help me. My labs looked "fine" as I was told but being a nurse I could see they were not fine. I had tried weight loss pills and even antidepressants and nothing helped. I was working out and doing everything possible to lose weight. But the heavier I was getting the harder it was for me to workout and the worse I would feel about myself. I knew a lady in our very small town that had gone to see Dr Almanza and looked fabulous. I had researched weight loss surgeries for years but I Didn't have anyone that could go with me and so I finally asked her to go with me. I had made up my mind that I could not do this any longer. The very best decision I have ever made. I had Surgery 7/24/14 and I would never change it for the world. It was somewhat hard at first. I had trouble with nausea which was not a new thing for me with surgeries so I was prepared but did not last long. I did have trouble with reflux but also not new to me and as time has passed these have gotten much better. At 16 weeks today I am down 70.2 pounds!!!! I have not regretted my decision once!
