I will start off by saying I am so happy with the results. I have lost 70lbs within 6 months of surgery. Days pass by and I just keep on loosing! Getting a gastric sleeve was the best decision I've ever made I was so unhappy with my body that I hated going out in public. I was referred by a friend and i'm just so glad i've made the decision to go and get it done! Dr Almanza was great and so was his crew of nurses. It wasn't easy but they made it less hard for recovery! I definitely recommend Dr, Almanza if you are unhappy with your body situation. I am so very thankful that I had this opportunity! Just a side note, I used to weight 219lbs now I weight 146lbs. Very proud of myself!
