Daniel: LAP-BAND Surgery

Daniel LAP-BAND Surgery

Hello, my name is Daniel. I had my lap-band surgery in May of 2013. When I went in for my consultation with Dr. Bagnato, I weighed 376 lbs. As of July 2014, I have dropped 135 lbs. I cannot say enough about how pleased I have been with my lap-band.  My story is pretty much identical to most of the other success stories I have read, I have tried all the diets, pills and exercise with only short term results. I was always able to lose a little but unable to maintain it. My lap-band has been an amazing tool that has helped me get to where I am today. Has it been easy? NO!  This still requires work and dedication, but I must say it has been simpler than what I expected. It’s all about learning to live and work with your band and taking on a new lifestyle. It is a lifestyle that will continue to reward you for your effort.

My weight has been a lifelong battle for me. This procedure has changed me in more ways than I can describe. My ultimate motivation in this was my son who was 3 when I made the decision to have the lap-band procedure. It had gotten to the point that I couldn’t play and run around with him for more than 5 minutes without being completely exhausted. I was always sleepy, and required a nap anytime I had an opportunity to take one. Physically and mentally, I was beat down badly. I was mortified thinking about how I wouldn’t be able to do so many things with my son because of my weight. So with that, I made up my mind to embark on this journey and I haven’t looked back. My energy level has increased tremendously, I don’t require frequent naps, I enjoy exercising, and most importantly I can run around and play with my son. If you are considering this procedure, do yourself a favor and go to the seminar and go have a consultation.  Dr. Bagnato and his staff are all top notch people. I haven’t met one single person in his office or the fill center that I didn’t instantly like. They are all so helpful and encouraging and have played a huge part in making this experience a great one.
