What was life like before bariatric surgery?
It was horrible! The main reason I decided to have the surgery was that I was in so much back pain. I was at the end of my rope. I was actually hoping I would die, just to be out of pain! My blood pressure was also going up. I basically couldn’t even walk. I did several diets and lost weight, but eventually fell off the wagon and gained all my weight and even more. This was my last hope!
If you put off the decision to come in for a long time, why was that? What kept you from booking a consultation?
At first I was kind of scared, because I had a few friends that actually died from weight loss surgery. I know now it was probably because they didn’t have Dr Bleu and PWLC. I did go for a consultation, but my insurance wouldn’t pay for surgery. After the consultation I felt better but I also had to save money. I had several people try to talk me out of but, like I said, it was my last hope.
What was it like to work with the team, from the start of your journey to today?
I don’t know if I have all the words to describe the people at PWLC!!! They are the most kind, considerate, polite, knowledgeable, and sweetest people I have ever met!!! It was my pleasure to be a patient! I couldn’t have done it without any of them! Dr Bleu hired the right people! He is an Angel too! He prayed before my surgery! Only thing else I can say is, Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!!!
What is your life like now? What’s the #1 thing you love being able to do now?
Oh my gosh!!! I can actually walk, sit, stand, and bend without pain! I look great, feel great and even get compliments on my facial expressions now, because they can tell I’m not in pain!
