Brian S – LAP-BAND Surgery

brian s weight loss success

I came to Palmyra Surgical just under 2 years ago. I met with Dr. Bagnato for a consultation about the Lap Band procedure, approval process and what to expect in the near future. Two weeks later I was approved by my insurance. We scheduled a procedure date on Nov. 3, 2014. I said a long prayer, got my mindset right, and prepared myself to do what I was instructed to make sure this procedure would be a success. I can honestly say that this journey has been one of the best decisions I ever made. Dr. Bagnato, his staff and the staff at the Bariatric Center have been a pleasure to deal with, and they are just as thorough as they are courteous.

Since Oct. 15, 2014 to date, I’ve lost a total of 150 lbs. I’ve gone from 403 lbs., wearing a snug 46 waist pants, and a 4x shirt to weighing 253 lbs. and wearing a 36 waist pants and XL shirt. 127 lbs. of that was lost in the first 10 months. I knew that this procedure was not a miracle cure, but more of a vehicle to help me change my lifestyle. Along with a massive change in eating habits, I picked up cycling as an outlet for exercise. I ride between 80 to 120 miles a week on my bike. I no longer take blood pressure meds, and I do not have sleep apnea anymore. Everyday life is so much easier and more pleasant now. I’m not finished yet; I’m about 20-25 lbs. away from my final goal. I would highly recommend Dr.Bagnato and his awesome staff to anyone.
