Sue had the vertical sleeve gastrectomy in December 2014. Her original weight was 258 pounds. Today, she has maintained a weight loss of 103 pounds.
I am very happy I made the decision to go ahead with weight loss surgery.
It has changed my life in so many ways:
- I had chronic knee and back pain where I could barely make it up a flight of stairs. Taking all that weight off of my body frame alleviated all my knee pain.
- I am happy to be able to be more active and play with my grandchildren; before weight loss surgery, I couldn’t even pick them up.
- I have more energy and look forward to going places and doing things (I used to dread the thought of having to walk anywhere).
I love my new life. My advice to anyone getting ready to have weight loss surgery would be to utilize all of Dr. Seun’s tools and follow them to a T.
Your surgery is not a cure for obesity, but a way to ‘reset’ your body.
If you follow everything you are instructed to do, you will be successful.
