Barbara’s Story
"The reason I chose to have Bariatric Surgery was due to health reasons. I had been diagnosed with diabetes and also had high blood pressure . Now one year later I’ve lost 94 pounds and I am no longer a diabetic and my blood pressure is normal. The only regret I have is that I didn’t have the Bariatric Surgery sooner. Thanks Dr. Chappano."
Bob’s Story
"It was a struggle deciding whether or not to have this surgery done. I went to my family doctor to discuss it and have him talk me out of it, but when he walked in the room he said it was about time I do something about my weight. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, borderline diabetes and knee problems. I was concerned about not being around for my family and seeing my grandkids grow up. I thought about wanting to travel after I retire, and now I am able to do those things. I have lost 90 pounds and kept it off. There has never been a day that I regretted having the Lap Band surgery. This is the greatest thing I have ever done short of marrying my lovely wife."
David’s Story
"There were many years of dieting and the weight always return. Then after contracting Lyme disease several years ago I reach a weight of 344 lbs. While some of the weight was loss with exercise, I still weighed over 300 lbs. The lap band procedure offered a safe and responsible method of losing weight and maintaining the weight loss for the rest of my life. The lap band combined with exercise and eating health, I have begun to change my life."
Elizabeth’s Story
"My decision to have Gastric Band surgery is the best decision I have ever made for myself. I had tried multiple weight loss attempts in the past, but all had failed. I knew I had to do something, and so I turned to surgery as an option. I had surgery on July 17, 2007; I have lost 120 pounds since surgery. I will have to admit that the weight loss is nice; however, I have received so much more from this surgery. Before surgery I was pre-diabetic and had borderline hypertension (high blood pressure). I can gladly say that I am no longer facing these health risks. I also have more energy, my new-found energy has allowed me to do so many things that I would never have dreamed of doing before. I am able to exercise, play with my niece, and even go to the grocery store without tiring. I am also more outgoing and I feel much better about who I am as a person. This surgery and weight loss journey has completely changed my life! I have no regrets, it truly is the best decision I have ever made!"
