I am 65 years old so it’s never too late to make life changes! I am 9 months out and I cannot tell you the difference this surgery has made in my life. I had high BP; was pre-diabetic; had continual pain in my back; and, in general, was miserable about the way I looked and the prospect I had for the future. I am now in the average weight range for my height (5’3″) and have come off all medications and feel like a million bucks. I love Dr. M and his staff. They are like family to me now. His encouragement was the key but he also completely puts this “tool” in my hands to use. It’s not an easy road to go down initially but each day/week gets easier and easier. I have never looked back and look forward to many more years of a healthy lifestyle.
