James: LAP-BAND Surgery

James Lap Band Surgery

As I write this, all I can think about is ‘Why not sooner?’ I spent my whole life struggling with my weight. It started very early in life for me. I weighed 300 lbs. in the sixth grade, which made me the center of attention to my classmates. I never let it hold me back, or at least that’s what I told myself. I now realized how much I missed out on; prom, dating, activities with my children, and just life in general.

Today, with the Lap-Band, I am well on my way to where I want to be. I have lost 150 lbs. in just under a year, while picking up 45lbs of muscle. I feel better at nearly 45 years old then I can ever remember. I have energy that never quits, and all of my sleep apnea symptoms are gone. My blood pressure is great, and my legs and feet are 10,000% better. I would recommend this procedure to anyone battling weight. Thank you Dr. Bagnato and staff for changing my life in such a wonderful way. God bless you all.
