Monica W. Had Weight Loss Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman

Before I had the surgery, I was miserable. I was very depressed, my relationship with my husband just went down the drain. I have so much energy now, after the surgery, I want to do more things, I want to go to places.

Living with extra weight was an absolute misery for me. I didn’t want to see people, I didn’t want to do things, in all fairness I couldn’t do many things. I don’t miss that life at all. To think that I lived it for so long… I was suffering, the people that I cared about were suffering right alongside with me. I felt like a failure in all aspects of my life. I felt like I was not doing enough for my kids, for my husband, I wasn’t there for my friends, and I was physically in pain if had to be up on my feet. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, I had them all. I was very happy when the weight loss surgery helped me lose not only the extra pounds but all these other conditions that were caused by being overweight. Life looks a lot different when you’re not 251 pounds anymore, and I feel so excited to explore the opportunities that come my way. For me, weight loss changed everything.
