Ken F. Had Gastric Bypass Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman

I continue to drive myself. I feel I must pay respect to this entire process. I don't want to wake up tomorrow having lost my commitment, feeling complacent, cocky in my own accomplishments to the point where I stop doing all the things that have brought me here.

Ken F.

For me, the road to weight loss surgery was a long one. Dr. Korman’s program was well known as one of the most comprehensive surgical programs in California. I had zero complications out of surgery, lost 215 pounds, and I am currently in the happiest and most promising period of my life. I feel better physically, I'm healthier, and in most people’s opinion I look better too. All of these things serve as daily confirmations of the choice I made. I laugh to myself when I hear people say that having weight loss surgery is "cheating", that I or someone else who did the surgery didn’t do it the "right way". I want to tell them that the surgery doesn't make me get up 3 days a week (often at 6:30 in the morning) and run 5 ½ miles; that surgery didn’t make me sign up at the gym and commit myself to weight train regularly; surgery hasn't forced me to participate in several 5 and 10k races. Awareness of everything I eat, (or don’t eat), how or when I exercise and how I live my life did that.
