I was 59 and miserable. I had reached the point of giving up on the weight loss struggle.
I was 59 and miserable. I had reached the point of giving up on the weight loss struggle. I'd tried everything over the years, pointlessly.
A great friend suggested I check into the gastric sleeve. I did and my life was about to be changed.
I opened an account at the hospital and began making payments as I had no insurance. Once paid, I was scheduled and well, the rest is history! I've looked back with nothing but gratitude for the hospital staff and the surgical team.
In 9 months I was down 100 pounds! I dropped another 10, and for the past 7 years (that's how long ago it's been) have stayed there within a pound or two.
I am now a happy, active, confident, healthy 67 year old who runs for fun and takes no medication. I've run 5k's, 10k's, halves and two full marathons. None of this would have happened without the gastric sleeve and all the support staff that works to make it successful.
I owe my life, and the ability to enjoy my life to the gastric sleeve team at CHI St. Vincent.
