Faye A – LAP-BAND Surgery
After only 3 1/2 months, Faye is seeing tremendous results
I had Lap Band surgery on August 20, 2015. I had been thinking of having it since 2007, about 7 years ago. I finally made up my mind in February 2015 to have the surgery. My main reason was for my health. I had a Brain Tumor removed in 2004, and after the surgery I gained about 100 pounds and my cholesterol was high, triglycerides were over 700, depression and anxiety, high blood pressure, pre-diabetic all came about from the brain tumor. My Mother was a bad diabetic and she had to give herself 2 insulin shots a day. Well I knew I didn’t want to have to go through that. Also I knew I needed to lose weight.
None of the diets helped. It has been a little over 3 months since my surgery. My lab work is down to normal, blood pressure is coming down. Hopefully in the near future I can quit taking my medication, and that is what I am working toward. I have lost 41 pounds I am down to a 16 Average in skinny jeans (before size 22-24), a size 18 to 20 blouse (before 3X), I have more energy than I have ever had in years. My legs have quit swelling up like a balloon. I feel 10 years younger. I am so thankful that I finally had the Lap Band surgery (I wish I had done it 7 years ago). Dr. V. John Bagnato was a gift from God. I have no regrets…
