READ HERB'S STORY:
Patient Name: Herb Sims
Procedure: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Date of Surgery: May 17th, 2011
Initial Weight: 374lbs.
Current Weight: 274
Total lbs. Lost: 100
"Before surgery, I could barely walk or sit comfortably. My knees hurt so bad that exercise was out of the question. I love to fish, but I could not do that because I could not get into a boat. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, I was a pre-diabetic, and I was depressed about my health. My doctor put me on Lotrel and Atenolol for my blood pressure, and Cymbalta for my depression. Since my surgery a little over a year ago, I am no longer taking Lotrel and the Atenolol has decreased to half of the dosage. Cymbalta is no longer needed.
I should have had this surgery a long time ago & would most definitely recommend it to anyone that needs it because it gave me my life back. I am now able to walk, exercise, and take my family fishing. Many projects around the house are now getting done. My wife is very happy that I can now take her shopping.
I now enjoy attending the community weight loss information sessions to stand up and give my testimonial and become an inspiration for people that are just entering the program."
