In August 2018 I was sick and tired of being FAT, unhealthy, on 12 different medications for high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, GERD, pre diabetes, bladder leakage & not able to hardly walk around the block without huffing and puffing and hurting so bad!!!!! I literally couldn’t hardly take care of myself at 64 years old & I was up to 245 lbs. I had been overweight most all my life, just couldn’t seem to loose and keep the weight off for very long. I had also already had several knee replacement surgeries, bladder surgeries, all kinds of surgeries!!! All the doctors would say was loose the weight!!!!
I heard about a weight loss Seminar by Dr. Mailapur and decided to go and see what it was all about! It was mind blowing to me that I could do this, but I thought what do I have to loose? I knew I had to make the changes necessary to help improve my health.
It wasn’t an easy decision nor is it an easy process to get approved for the Vertical Gastric Sleeve surgery.
I went to my first appointment with Dr. Mailapur and he explained what all I would have to do before he would even consider surgery. So, I started his diet immediately and I lost 16 pounds before my next appointment.
I did everything he required of me and was finally approved. I had the Vertical Gastric Sleeve surgery on October 29,2019. I am now down a total of 95 pounds! I went from a size 18-20 plus size to now a size 4 jeans.( I didn’t wear a size 4 when I was 4!!!)
After 9 months pos 5 lbs. from my goal weight
