Before the surgery, I was so unhappy because I knew I was unhealthy inside and out. Simple things were getting more challenging due to blood pressure issues and decreased quality of life. At 48, I knew I was facing long-term consequences for short-term indulgences. Additionally, I had been placed on CPAP for severe sleep apnea.
I had watched a close family friend lose weight following her VSG, and the transformation was indescribable. I had my consult in September and was “all in”.The front office was always very friendly, and Dr. Doucette was amazing and a true life saver.
One month post operatively, I was taken off my BP meds, still dealing with sleep apnea and may always, but I can at least know it’s not weight-related. I love that I could walk around Disney three months post-op and share clothes with my daughters – Tonya H.
