I had the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass in Feb 2012, co-morbidities were Diabetes, Hypertension, and High Cholestrol. My starting weight was 389 lbs. I have lost 156 lbs in 9 months with NO more medical conditions. My wife and I were unable to concieve, but now my wife is 5 months pregnant. I look foward to a happy and healthly life with my family. Thank you to Dr. Eslami and staff for all they have done. Here is a piece of advise, Do Not hesitate to ask questions regarding Bariatric Surgery. Even with the struggles I went thru (gastric bleeding from ulcer due to taking anti-inflammatory medication right after surgery, now I am all healed) I feel GREAT!
I gained 80lbs during my pregnancy in my mid 20s and tried every diet and gimmick known to woman-kind, then yoyo'd for years. At 55 I flat gave up and knew I was going to die as a fat person. It took me a year to decide to have bariatric surgery…the deciding factor being that my HbA1C was elevated for the first time in my life. I knew I couldn't spend what was left of my life like my mother did; diabetic and on dialysis. I met Dr. Eslami and his staff and was immediately sure I was making the right choice. Lynnette helped me breeze through the preliminary red tape of insurance authorizations, Randi schooled me on proper nutrition, and Rhondi emotionally held my hand every step of the way. I felt confident that Dr. Eslami was more than qualified to perform this surgery, and I was not disappointed. I recommend this group to everyone I come into contact with who is considering this life altering surgery. I have never before felt this comfortable in my skin…even though there is quite a bit more of it…and I think I will keep it to remind me from where I traveled.
Before pic is at 235 8 months before surgery. After pic is at 157 8 months after surgery.
The surgery has changed my life! I have lost just shy of 100 lbs in less than a year and feel terrific. People that have not seen me in a while don't recognize me! This past winter, I could out ski anyone down the steepest of mountains...first across the finish line every time! I sleep better than I ever have and wake up feeling energized and exhilarated! Dr. Eslami and his staff were amazing and continue to show complete support throughout my wellness check-ups. I could not have imagined such fulfilling results. If you are over weight and have struggled like I did throughout the years...this is the surgery for you! You will love the new you and the only regret will be that you did not do the surgery sooner.
