(Staten Island, NY)
I had Gastric Banding, January 2009 at 59 years old. To date I have lost 81 lbs.
I procrastinated for two (2) years over doing this. I now know I should have done it sooner.
I was always heavy, but never realized how heavy I kept getting until my legs began to hurt and I could not walk long lengths. My knees could not take the weight.
They have great clothes in large sizes today, so vanity was never the issue for me, feeling healthy is my goal.
Thank goodness I am a pretty healthy person. Obesity can cause so many health issues. I had high triglycerides and high blood pressure which was my issue. Because of this procedure, that is no longer the case.
I would recommend gastric banding to anyone who needs to lose weight, wants good health and a better quality of life. No matter what age you are.
I am happy I made the choice. I was lucky to have my family to support my decision, but ultimately, it's your decision that counts!!
