Torachel: LAP-BAND Surgery

torachel weight loss success My name is Torahel P. My Lap Band journey started April 4, 2014. I struggled with my weight for years, and it was not getting better as time went on. Well, 2014 was my year.  I decided to do some research.  I came across this doctor, who was local for me. I attended a seminar, and it helped to remove my fears. One year later, I am 130 pounds lighter. I started out at 320! I am more active now, with plenty of energy. Dr. John Bagnato and his staff at Palmyra Surgical in Macon, GA helped me to get my weight under control. Thank you so much!

    I have contemplating having gastric bypass for years now. I have just got up the nerve to start researching it more, but after reading your testimony, I think I am going to go with the lap band. You look good and keep up the good work. Maybe I will be able to put a testimony on here in the near future.
