My weight was taking a toll on me in the form of back pain, joint pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and low self-esteem. I was on medication for my blood pressure and my cholesterol, and not only was my self image suffering, but I also feared for my overall health and well-being.
I turned to the LAP-BAND®. I researched my options and talked to three different doctors. I was looking for one that had support group meetings and one that I knew would be with me long after the surgery. I found just what I was looking for when I found Malley Surgical.
Since having the LAP-BAND System procedure in 2006, I have lost almost 100 pounds, and I’m completely off my blood pressure medication. I can walk the dog, mow the yard, even swim. And best of all, some friends saw me last summer and thought my husband had found a new, younger wife!
I’m so thankful for the LAP-BAND. It has changed my life, and it can change yours too.
