Say goodbye to comorbidities like sleep apnea and diabetes! The benefits of bariatric surgery are countless. From controlling high blood pressure to curing type 2 diabetes, bariatric surgery can be life-changing.
Gerard was nearly 200 pounds overweight before his surgery. He was taking medication for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and acid reflux. He also struggled with sleep apnea causing him to rely on a CPAP machine. However, with the help of bariatric surgery, Gerard lost 186 pounds and feels better than ever. “The day after my surgery, I didn’t take another pill…My blood pressure now runs low, my reflux has never come back, my cholesterol is in the normal range, no more problems with sleeping, and my thighs are now healed and back to normal. Everything got better.”
In 2015, Brad, another one of our patients, weighed 285 pounds. He was tired of being exhausted all the time and desperately wanted to be healthier for his wife and children. Two years post-surgery, Brad is a healthy 180 pounds. He works out five times per week and feels great. Since the surgery, Brad loves to be active and play with his children, something he was not capable of doing before due to his weight.
Utilizing their bariatric surgery tool, Brad and Gerard continue to fight hard to maintain their newfound healthy lifestyle. When asked about his surgery, Gerard said, “Yes, this surgery was a “jumpstart” but it wasn’t an easy fix. Since the surgery I started with dropping all of the negativity that the world throws at us, and picked up a better and more positive personality, and I now seek out the positives in life instead of being the “woe is me” guy.”
