Holly B.

Holly Before & After

Procedure: Gastric Sleeve

Total Weight Lost: 73

Surgery Date: 09/18/2023

Before surgery, I was miserable with the way I looked and was extremely out of shape. I took blood pressure medication to keep my blood pressure under control. I also struggled with sleep apnea. I was tired all the time. I was told I would eventually end up diabetic and with fatty liver disease from my weight. I hated how I looked in clothes and was embarrassed about my size.

I was considering weight loss surgery for two or three years at least before coming in for a consultation. I was scared my weight would come back or not be successful. A coworker had the surgery done, and after seeing and talking about their experiences I starting taking steps to go for it.

Dr. Doucette was great and the dietitians were so understanding. They didn’t try to make me feel guilty for how I’d gotten to where I was, but tried (and still do) to help me find things that work for me.

My husband says I run off and leave him now. I can do most physical activities without being absolutely exhausted now. I rarely ever have to take medication for my blood pressure anymore.
