Alex L – LAP-BAND Surgery*
Hey, my name is Alex. In June it will be two years since I have had my Lap Band. I woke up one day, and said enough is enough. I was tired of always having to be cautious about what I could and couldn’t do due to my weight. I had never noticed that I had become so heavy. I started my journey at 320 lbs. (my heaviest). I worked at a physician’s office, and one day a Lap-band representative came in, and educated us about the band. The safety instantly caught my attention. A few days later I called Dr. Bagnato’s office to schedule a consultation.
I came in for my appointment, and about a week later I was approved by my insurance. Since the day of my surgery my life has changed completely. Now at 225 lbs., I feel like I have my life back. I can now enjoy the little things that I couldn’t do before, like crossing my legs without having to hold them. I still have some way to go to reach my goal weight of 200-175 lbs. I’m not quite there, but I can already tell this was definitely the best thing that I have done for myself in my entire life, and I would recommend Lap band to anyone who needed a helping hand reaching their weight loss goals. I want to thank Dr. Bagnato and everyone at Palmyra Surgical for all their support.
