Before surgery my life was very difficult. I was so extremely overweight that walking up stairs was a chore and the pain in my knees was unbearable. I was at a point where I did not want to look in the mirror and dealt with depression from being overweight. My blood pressure has decreased and sleep apnea has improved, also I no longer have to take medication for high cholesterol. Since my weight loss surgery my self esteem and energy levels are so high. I now enjoy shopping for a body that I have not seen in 20 years. The surgery it self wasn’t difficult physically but mentally a little more challenging but well worth it. Overall my quality of life is so much better and I’m even excited about working out these days. I am very appreciative of Dr. Wadiwala and his staff and I think its awesome to have a surgeon with such a great bedside manner.
