A huge thank you Dr. Chang for giving me the chance at a rewarding, healthy, and fulfilling life. It’s been 3 years, and I would say this was hands down the best decision I ever made.

My Journey

This surgery changed my life completely. It saved me from a long unhappy life revolving around food and being uncomfortable on a daily basis. This surgery gave me my confidence back along with my health. It taught me that it’s never too late to take control and once you do to always make it a priority. Losing 175 pounds in a little less than a year really puts things into perspective. It makes you thankful and ready for anything life will throw at you. I am a new woman and a better person for going through all of this and not allowing my weight to be the only noticeable thing about me.

Since the surgery, I am able to do a lot more activities with a lot less difficulty. I am able to walk upstairs without being extremely out of breath. I am able to play volleyball with my friends without feeling like I’m slowly dying. I am able to be active on a daily basis without being in pain or wanting so badly just to sit down. Going to amusement parks and actually fitting into the seat without being asked to get off the ride is an amazing feeling. The one thing I am able to do today that I wasn’t able to do before is look at myself in the mirror and love the way I look. Knowing I still have flaws, but not letting anything hold me back from being confident and attractive.

My health has also improved vastly since the surgery. My high blood pressure went away. No more medication. My PCOS went away. My horrific knee pain has gotten better and easier to manage. My overall breathing is better. Any and all health concerns I had are gone. I’m living the life I always wanted to and that is the best feeling in the world!

A huge thank you Dr. Chang for giving me the chance at a rewarding, healthy, and fulfilling life. It’s been 3 years, and I would say this was hands down the best decision I ever made.
