Here you are – at lucky number 7! What an amazing journey you have taken. Maybe you do feel lucky, but you should definitely feel proud, too. You’ve completed each step, from education to evaluation, through surgery and recovery – and are now achieving your dream of getting your life back.
At Sarasota Memorial, we take great pride in each of our Bariatric patients. And as our Celebration Board (featuring “before” and “after” pictures of our patients) grows, we know we’re helping more and more patients conquer obesity and get their lives back, too.
Here are just a few of our success stories:
"I feel so much healthier... I exercise and enjoy it, I am off my blood pressure medications, I no longer obsess about food. I am happier, much more confident, and energetic."
"Having weight loss surgery was the best decision I have ever made."
"I feel I've been 'reborn'!"
"I have more confidence and enthusiasm to try new things."
"I feel better, I look better, people respond to me differently, and my self-confidence is better."
