My weight affected my life in so many ways. At 249 lbs., my medical issues ranged from pulmonary problems to acid reflux to back and knee pain. And my self-esteem was so low, I never really even wanted to go out anywhere, because I hated the way I looked.
In 2005, a family member referred me to Dr. Malley to have the LAP-BAND® System procedure. Since my surgery, I now weigh a stunning 145 lbs. I feel like a new person now. I actually have fun getting dressed up and going out, which is something I never thought I would experience again. I feel like the person I was 25 years ago!
And beyond how I look, my health has vastly improved. I no longer take any of the medications I did when I was battling obesity. I can honestly say that Dr. Malley and the LAP-BAND System have saved my life.
Thanks, Dr. Malley!
