Jodi M. Had Lap Band to Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Jeremy Korman

I can truly say I wish I had my surgery sooner. My experience with the band to sleeve surgery has been wonderful and I've had great success with it. I now feel fantastic and I'm able to participate fully in life. The surgery has helped me become a better version of myself.

Jodi M.

I had a band to sleeve procedure in July of 2018. Now, more than one-year post-surgery, I've lost 80lbs. I have reached my goal weight of 171lbs and I continue to fight to maintain my fitness goals. I am actively working out, eating healthy - I love chicken salad - and looking forward to a healthy future. My grandchildren and being healthy are my motivation. Also, before my surgery, I was experiencing a lot of heartburn. Now, post-surgery, heartburn is 100% gone. I still face challenges on my journey. Currently, I have a desk job and, as we all know, that can be bad for health. Looking back, I wish I had this procedure done sooner. Before choosing surgery, I tried every single diet I could find, I even tried the cabbage soup diet. People were telling me to try different diets because "This one works." But what I found was that there is no fail-safe diet, I would lose a few pounds here and there then gained it all back. I encourage others considering weight loss surgery to do their research and weigh the pros and cons.
