Bariatric Surgery Patient Stories


Lynette Feels "Reborn" After Weight Loss Surgery


Before the surgery my life consisted of taking a lot of medication, and a lot of staying home on the sofa in front of the television. I tried dieting and weight loss pills, which put me in a yo-yo weight status. My physician suggested the surgery to me, but I declined because I thought it was for people who wanted an easy way out. I told her that I could do it on my own. I had several falls because I was too heavy for my petite bone structure, and my knees kept giving out. Severely depressed and aching all over, I decided to begin the journey to weight loss surgery. 

I was reborn August 12, 2008, and the rest is becoming a wonder history. It feels great to be alive!
