This surgery has given me my life back, I never knew life could be so good. I went from 303 lbs to 213 lbs and still losing!! 90 lbs in 8 months. I was taking 5 medications, I'm down to 2, no more aches and pains, I can wear normal size clothing and don't have to shop in the plus size stores anymore!! I wish I would have done this years ago, I wasted so much time!! Find the money, get going and fix your life.
