Our bariatric patient, Lori, recently posted ‘before and after’ photos of herself on Facebook since her gastric sleeve bariatric surgery and we asked her to share her success story:
“I came to Dr. Seun about 2 1/2 years ago. I was sick, had no energy, suffered from diabetes and other medical issues. I wasn’t a well person. I had been to countless weight loss programs and nothing worked.
I decided to have weight loss surgery, which was performed on July 8, 2015. I didn’t know then how much my life would change for the better.
It has been over a year since my weight loss surgery and I have been so embarrassed to even think of showing my old pictures with the new me. But, today, when I wore the very same outfit as last Thanksgiving, I am amazed and proud of myself at how far I have come. I still have a little more to go, but I know I can do it.
No more diabetes and a big energy boost
I no longer am diabetic, my energy level has more than doubled, and I feel beautiful again, something I hadn’t felt in years. Thank you to Dr. Seun Sowemimo and all my friends and family that have supported me and cheered me on. You guys are the best and I love you all and am thankful for every one of you. God bless you all, my team of angels.
Dr. Seun and the awesome team in his office helped me every step of the way. Along with their encouragement, they also helped in dealing with my medical insurance, and answered any questions I had. I recommend Dr. Seun and Prime Surgicare to all my friends. He is the most caring doctor I have ever met. (He comes to the hospital at all hours to make sure his patients are ok.)
What it’s like to lose 100 pounds in a year
I am now down 100 pounds and feel fabulous. I would not have come this far on my own. This process has given me a new life. People think “oh it’s the easy way out.” I will tell you it can be easy if you follow everything Dr. Seun and his team tell you. It takes a lot of getting used to eating less, but you are really aren’t hungry.
And the benefits afterward were well worth it.
I cannot thank Dr. Seun and his staff for my new lease on life. They are one awesome team.”
