How Bariatric Surgery Changed a Woman’s Life

“In 2013, I decided I needed to finally do something about my weight. Over the years, I had steadily been getting larger and larger. When I delivered my son at 21 years old, I was 307 pounds. Nine years later, I was 365 pounds and growing. Diets and lifestyle changes were not working. I was beyond hope, I thought.
But... I did some research online and discovered SkyMedicus. The lady who got back to me was amazing- she never pressured me, was patient through all my fears and questions and she kept in contact with me over the months I took to make the decision to have bariatric surgery.
She walked me through the entire process - from picking a doctor and hospital, to getting my passport arranging travel plans, payment information and tips on pre-surgery prep.
At the hospital, I was blown away by how friendly and utterly professional the entire staff was. My surgeon came to my room to introduce himself and to answer any last minute questions I had.
It's been 2 years and eleven days and I have gone from a 365lb, size 30, to a 182 lbs size 10. The most amazing part? I am not in constant pain anymore, I can keep up with my son and I feel like a brand new person.
