My Experience - Dominican Republic, DO

At this moment I can say it was worth it. This is a drastic change you make in your life, but once you begin to see the positive changes, everything goes excellent. I had pain for the 2 first days after de procedure, but at the 6th day after it, I began working. At the beginning you get tired more often, but eventually it will get much better. Today with 2 months since I got my operation, I have lost 38 pounds. I used to have asthma attacks, they havent appeared since i got operated. My cholesterol and sugar levels are great ... everything has changed for good.

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your journey with us!

Congratulations on your weight loss so far, that's a huge achievement and I hope you continue to have such success! If you don't mind sharing, how much did you weigh going in to surgery?

I had my surgery (gastric sleeve) 2 weeks ago and it's definitely something I'm glad I did.
