“The results of the surgery exceeded any idea that I had. My joints feel wonderful, my pre-diabetes numbers have changed back where they should be. Within approximately a years’ time I lost 120 lbs, I dropped four sizes in clothing and have a totally different lifestyle.
It’s an absolute complete change in my approach to life now. I’m able to do climbing and hiking, things I would never have been able to do before. I had the ability to ride as a passenger in a glider plane. There is no way, size wise or weight wise, I would have ever been able to accomplish that.
Make the step to make the change, you won’t regret it after it’s done.”*
“I’d been thinking about having some kind of gastric surgery because I’d been heavy all my life. I had taken a vacation with my grandkids and there were a lot of things I just couldn’t do with them. I just decided I was tired of it.
I met with Amanda first. She made sure my hospital stay went flawlessly. She made sure, right up front, how much everything was going to cost me. That’s very important that you have a person to guide you.
I went from taking six blood pressure medicines a day down to two. I was also a diabetic and took numerous meds and I take nothing for my diabetes now. I never went into this to be a slim person, I just went into it to be a healthy person.
I would recommend people have this surgery. I wish I’d have done it ten years before I did, at least.”*
