I m currently 16 days post op, honestly surgery is something I never thought I d have to resort to for weight loss but like most people I ve tried everything under the sun. I could drop some weight on my own but not much and finally I have up I decided to try and tell myself I d love myself for me.. I hit my heaviest weight of 304 pounds and I couldn t take it anymore! I m currently 17 pounds down from my surgery day and 32 pounds down all together from my pre op diet! Dr. Mario Almanza has given me a second chance at life, Im struggling adjusting to the new life I now live but I do not regret my decision even a little! I can t wait to see the new me under all of this weight!
