Going on 3 Weeks and Feeling Great! - Fresno, CA

I'm happy with my choice to do the Orbera...

I'm happy with my choice to do the Orbera Intragastric Balloon. Almost 15 lbs in 3 weeks and am so surprised that I feel fine on a much fewer calories than I'm used to taking in. The first 48 hours were not my finest hours, but my body is still adjusting to the balloon and I'm making great strides.

Going on Week 3 and Feeling Great!

I'm glad I took this first step in my weight loss journey. I'm going on 3 weeks and have lost about 15 lbs. The first 48 hours was a little rough, but I got stronger every day and am surprised with how I feel consuming far less calories than I had in the past. I really feel this is what was best for me.

Dr. Shideler

Dr. Shideler at Athenix in Fresno, CA was a great support after the procedure, very attentive with calls and explained to me in detail what was happening with my body. He's a very good listener and takes the time to explain everything.
