I have three small children, all under the age of 10. One day, and this is literally how it happened, I looked down and there I was 266 lbs. It crept up on me and like a thief in the night obesity stole my femininity, health and joy. I always thought I could get it under control, but in the end I just couldn't do it without help. I spoke to my doctor who referred me to the Dr. Trieu at the MaineGeneral Bariatric Program in Augusta, Maine. He suggested I undergo a vertical sleeve gastrectomy and the rest is history. The cons, what small inconveniences they may be, are so overshadowed by the pros I simply can't say a single negative thing about this procedure. I'm living again. Enough said.
