“Before my surgery I was almost 260lbs and suffered with GERD, PCOS, and Sleep Apnea having to use oxygen whenever I slept. I was miserable. I am now able to do things that I couldn’t before like tie my shoes and enjoy my time with my husband and kids. I am always asked if I would have the surgery again and my answer is always, in a heartbeat!” *results may vary

But most of all, I now love the girl staring back at me in the mirror. I am 110lbs lighter and I couldn’t be happier!” *results may vary
