My journey into the Bariatric World first began in 2014 at the age of 41. The idea of what some would call 'weight control' was rather difficult in my family as each of us has suffered from various autoimmune conditions that cause our weight to fluctuate abnormally. Both my Mother and my Brother were the first to venture into weight loss surgery and after their amazing results, I too felt the need to explore an alternative to ensure many healthy years ahead of me.
After researching many options, I found that West Medical had a very high success rate in weight loss surgery. Once meeting with the Physicians, my options were laid out in front of me in explicit detail, and no questions or concerns were left unaddressed.
West Medical helped me evaluate numerous weight loss options that led me to undergo the Gastric Sleeve procedure. In under a year, I have lost 80 pounds, and most importantly, am better prepared to maintain an ideal weight.
Since post-op, my quality of life has been restored. My autoimmune condition has been significantly impacted leaving me with more energy to perform daily activities and spend time with my loved ones. I am also able to fit into clothes that accentuate my features without making me feel ashamed of my appearance. I am truly grateful for the opportunity I have been given, and know that I could not have traveled down this road alone. West Medical has truly given me the gift of life.
