I come from an overweight family, and I have struggled with my weight my whole life. In my family, we have all suffered from weight-related medical conditions. I had high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, depression, hypothyroidism and back and foot pain.
In 2006, after countless failed diets, I had the LAP-BAND® System surgery with Dr. Malley. I saw him on a television commercial and decided to check out his seminar. I was so impressed by his experience, and I was comfortable with him as a physician and as a person. I knew I would be in good hands.
Today, I weigh 180 lbs., compared to the 338 lbs. I was at my worst. My exterior now matches the person I’ve always been on the inside. I can walk and even dance without getting winded or perspiring excessively. I love being able to shop at any store I want, rather than the specialty shops for “big women.”
I was determined to be successful, and I did everything Dr. Malley instructed me to do. My discomfort was minimal, and this has been the best long-term solution I could have found for myself.
Thank you, Dr. Malley!
