Marie L Had Gastric Sleeve Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman
Small details of daily life that most people take for granted, like being able to wear regular sized clothes and to keep up with my grandchildren when we go out for a walk, always bring a smile on my face and keep me motivated.
In 2014, I underwent a sleeve gastrectomy with Dr. Korman and since then, I lost 114 pounds, I am maintaining today a normal weight of 170 pounds. Being overweight led to other weight-related diseases, like diabetes and hypertension. Not needing so much medication anymore for all these health problems and losing over 100 pounds are definitely my greatest achievements since the surgery. The loss of my friend who struggled to keep her diabetes under control and suffered many complications because of the medication she was taking leading to her death put an end to my debate about having weight loss surgery. I realized that I needed to make a change before it was too late. I feel like a whole new person now that I am no longer constrained by the limitations that being overweight imposed. Weight loss surgery changes your life a lot but you cannot expect great results if you continue living the way you did before.
