My Dr. in Austin Texas saved my life! In June 2007, I went into surgery weighing 265 lbs. Today I weigh 140 and feel like a million bucks. I will turn 51 in June and am so happy I had this procedure done.
My weight had yo-yoed my whole life and once I was 100 lbs. overweight, I knew that I no longer had it in me to diet it off. I had gained and lost enough weight in my life to make up 5 people!
Dr. F and his staff worked with me for well over a year while I pondered if I should do the procedure or not. When at last the decision was made and the surgery performed, I could not have been happier. The weight literally fell off and I had NO side effects. His staff of nurses and a great nutrionalist made me feel so comfortable and were always willing and ready to answer any questions that I had - and may still have to this day.
At this stage in my life, I knew that I couldn't work the weight off myself and had tried and failed so many times before that I literally saw gastric bypass as my only hope - and it was well worth it. I am 3 years post-op and the weight has stayed off.
Thank you to Dr. F and his dynamic team. I am forever in your debt.
