52yrs old mom of 3 , all c-sections....lost 161lbs...

52yrs old mom of 3 , all c-sections....lost 161lbs back in 1996, no surgery just working out at YMCA 3-4 times a wk. No diet ate normal food and deserts. My decision to get a panniculectomy was one of the best life changing experience I've made. No regrets Good experience all the way round.I only experienced some slight burning the day of surgery no pain meds after the first day and has been up hill ever since. Dr VIOL said as long as nothing changes I will be back my regular routine in 2wks. I feel ready now but the doctor knows best.....I was back walking one the treadmill in 6 days. Open for questions. ...currently 163lbs I was 168 before surgery and didn't have much swelling.

2012 picture

Here's a 2012 pic of me on a cruise. ..I kept my weight off until 2008 and then menapause set in nothing worked. In this picture I weighed 250 lbs. Once my hormones kinda leveled I started my journey in the back at the ymca I never gave up. Needless to say here I am today. I look at it like this I started at 326lbs back in 1996. The good thing is I kept weight off 12 yrs. Menapause is a part of life, for those of you that have not yet experienced it yet good luck. I'm so glad it's behind me now. What ever you do don't give up stayed on its. It too shell pass.

DR.VIOL

I loved every thing about Dr.Viol, very professional. If you don't want the truth then you won't like him..He going to tell you like it is from a professional point of view. No ferry tales. .Only realistic expectations.
