Diana D. Had Lap Band Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman

Having to use my CPAP machine every day felt like a burden to me and I think that not needing it anymore motivates me to continue improving my health and life.

Diana D.

In 2012, I gave myself what in retrospect looks like the best Christmas gift ever since it has visibly changed my life for the better. To cut the suspense, I’m talking about having bariatric surgery. A Gastric Band procedure was performed by Dr. Korman and it helped lower my 192 pounds starting weight with 48 pounds. I’d say my biggest accomplishment since the surgery has been not having to sleep with my CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine anymore. My nights are finally restful. In all honesty, adjusting to a new way of life is difficult. I have a busy life so remembering to drink more water and take my daily dose of vitamins can be pretty challenging. It is true that weight loss surgery helps people eat less but you have to gradually give up on your bad habits and start making healthier choices, otherwise, it is all for nothing. I can tell you this though: life is infinitely better when you no longer have to worry about the excess weight.
