Scott L. Had Gastric Bypass Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman

The bariatric surgery has helped me rediscover how good being healthy feels and this motivates me to work continuously for my well-being.

Scott L.

An overwhelming weight of 403.5 pounds made me take the matter of my health seriously. Not being able to lose weight through traditional diets, in 2003 I decided to have Roux-En-Y gastric bypass, a surgery that has greatly improved my physical and mental wellness. Today, I weigh 231.5 pounds. It has been a long and tough journey but I would probably be dead now if I hadn't had the courage to make a change in my life. Being overweight for a long time made me forget how my life used to be when I was at a normal weight. The bariatric surgery has helped me rediscover how good being healthy feels and this feeling in itself motivates me enough to work continuously for my well-being. Deciding to undergo weight loss procedures involves a lot of effort, discipline and a commitment to yourself to change your lifestyle and your attitude towards food.
