Hua K. Had Lap Band Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman

I used to watch people live instead of participating in my own life. I realized I was worthy of the infinite possibilities that life has to offer. I started to run, and it gave me a purpose: to challenge my mind.

Hua K.

My name is Hua and I had the lap band surgery on February 9, 2009. I weighed 227 lbs the day I had surgery. I have lost 98 lbs to date and have another 15 lbs to reach my ultimate goal weight. Before my procedure, I was not happy and was not living the life that I envisioned. I didn't believe I deserved to be happy because I was morbidly obese. I did not realize that making the decision to have the lap band surgery would change my life so dramatically. It is difficult to put into words how much my life has changed. I am grateful to Dr. Korman, Bridgette, Mel and the entire staff at Marina Weight Management for their support and guidance. Their sensitivity in regards to obesity and their compassion in helping their patients are truly remarkable and speak of the human experience. I’ve had a lot to gain.
