6 STARS! Unbelievable experience! If you qualify for a gastric sleeve, you should run to this office and get it rolling immediately. This is the best thing I've EVER done for myself, hands down. I was 350 lbs in August of 2018. My whole life, I have been active and only a little overweight. However, I had a number of things happen in my life that contributed to me gaining a ton of weight. I probably was over 250 for 3-4 years. I had sleep apnea something fierce. I was in Atrial Fibrillation (but didn't even know it). When traveling, I would have to stop and rest a couple of times at the airport. I just couldn't walk very long or very fast without getting totally out of breath and feeling terrible. I thought it was only the weight but apparently, it was several things.

 

I met with Dr. Obos and we decided that I should get the Gastric Sleeve. This is not the lap band that caused issues for so many people. I don't even think that Dr. O will do a lap band. A Gastric Sleeve is what they call it when they cut out part of your stomach and sew it back up. This does 2 things. 1st, it makes your stomach pouch smaller. 2nd, it removes some of your "hunger sensors" (I'm obviously not a Dr.). So, not only was I not as hungry initially, but I also had a smaller capacity so I really couldn't overeat. Having said that, I get hungrier now than right after the surgery. And, you can definitely over eat and stretch your stomach back out. So, here's what happened to me. I lost 40 lbs in 5 months in preparation for the surgery.

 

Then I lost another 10 in the week leading up to the procedure in June 2019. By Christmas, I was 190 lbs. Now, I hang out around 185 regularly. My heart is in a rhythm now. I don't have to sleep with the bi-pap anymore for sleep apnea. That is completely gone. My Cardiologist took me off of high blood pressure medicine. And, I can walk miles without getting winded. The procedure was so easy I was shocked. The recovery time was super short and smooth. They made 3 or 4 incisions that are completely invisible now. I am an absolute advocate for this procedure and for this Doctor.

 

He changed my life. I just can't say enough good things. If you are on the fence about getting this procedure, you should talk to someone about it. If you want to talk about it, I would be happy to speak with you personally. Just call Dr. O's office and they'll give you my mobile number.
