I had gastric sleeve surgery in August of 2017. I’m excited to say that I lost 120 pounds in my first year, and 165 pounds from my highest weight.
I’ve had asthma my whole life and this weight loss has helped me to go off all of my medications and inhalers. I’ve also had anxiety and depression most of my life, and I’ve been able to go off my antidepressant. I have a two year old son and I feel I haven’t wasted any time with him. I’ve been able to keep up with him and do things I haven’t been able to do for 20 years; wear a swimsuit, go down a slide, fit in a swing, go to the community pool. I just want to thank Dr. Rodrick McKinlay for helping me find my best self and get my life back. I’m truly happy for the first time in a long time! Thank you for letting me share my story with you.
