Robbie: LAP-BAND Surgery
I don’t plan on passing away any time soon, but if I do I know it won’t be from being overweight thanks to Dr. Bagnato.
I have been over weight most of my life, I started to think that there was no other way for me. I tried every diet known to man and every diet pill that a doctor could prescribe. When I would do the low cal diets, I felt like I was still starved day after day, and you can only go so long just wanting to feel full. No matter what diet or pill I tried or how much weight I lost I would only sling shot right back plus 10 pounds. I went through the years deciding to just live with being overweight and living with the things that I could and could not do. It was not until my father passed away and did not have life insurance did I find out how hard it was on trying to pay off his bills and funeral costs. From there I only imagined what would happen with my wife and kids if something happened to me. After being turned down by multiple insurances company’s for life insurance because of my weight, I knew something had to be done. If not for me it had to be done for my wife and kids, and this is where my journey begins. After doing much needed research finding that Dr. Bagnato was one of the best lap-band doctors, I attended a seminar explaining the benefits of the lap-band. I did not know until I attended the seminar by Dr. Bagnato that I would even be able to afford the lap-band. I was informed that there was a chance that my insurance could possibly cover the surgery for me. Dr. Bagnato’s office did all the work on helping file my insurance and letting me know everything I had to do for them to cover my surgery. Since receiving the lap-band it has been a tool in guiding me in my weight loss journey. I have lost to date 140 pounds and I’m happier than ever. I am able to spend more time with my kids and do things I was not able to do before. Now that I have lost the weight I have been able to get life insurance and have a peace of mind knowing that if something ever happens to me that my family will be taken care of.
