My Journey

The impact the surgery has had on my life is nothing short of amazing! I look and feel so much better… it’s basically given me my life back! I never thought in a million years, I would be wearing a size 32 pants and a small or medium shirt. I was always told that I was just “big boned” and I just needed to come to terms with that. Shopping is a lot more fun now when you don’t have to shop in the big and tall section!

In addition to having more energy to play with my son, my snoring and sleep apnea disappeared after the surgery. It was such a relief to be able to breathe all night long and not wake up because I’m suffocating.

I am fortunate that my wife and I were able to go on this journey together so we could support one another and get healthy together for ourselves and for our son. I am also thankful that Dr. Cheregi has been a part of this journey with us. Before the surgery, he was so great at making me feel comfortable and making sure I was fully informed about the entire process. You can tell he really loves what he does and cares for his patients. You don’t feel like just another name on a chart. He takes the time to get to know you, and he is a genuinely amazing person. I could never thank Dr. Cheregi enough for all that he has done for me and my family. Dr. Cheregi is truly an amazing person and I’m so lucky that he was there to be a part of our process.
