Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery
Weight Loss: 150 pounds

“…it has helped me love myself again…”

At 332 pounds, I suffered from sleep apnea, high blood pressure and a chronic knee injury. On top of that I was very depressed. Thanks to the surgery, all of these conditions have improved tremendously. I no longer have sleep apnea, so I can dream again. And even though I’m going to need knee replacement surgery, the pain I feel now is a lot less. This experience has not only changed me physically, it has helped me love myself again, too.
