Pamela H: Lap Band Surgery

In December of 2016 I had an appointment with my doctor to see about what could be done for my knee pain that was keeping me from doing a lot of things that I loved to do. During that appointment, a simple question was asked: “Have you ever thought about lap band surgery?” The next thing I know I was seeing Dr. Bagnato and his fabulous staff.  When I got on the scales and saw that I weighed 331 pounds I almost fainted. It was a wake-up call that I am glad I heeded. I had the procedure done on May 3, 2017 and started an incredible journey that has changed my life. I realized early on that I had to make permanent lifestyle changes. One of the reasons that I have been able to make these changes is that I have the support of my husband, family and close friends.  Now, 78 pounds lighter, my knees are doing much better and walking is a joy not an effort. I am still moving forward with my weight loss program and will always be aware of what and how much I eat for the rest of my life. Being able to finally participate fully like I used to is the best Christmas present I could give myself. Dr. Bagnato and his staff have been incredibly supportive and have made this journey as painless as possible.
