I have always had weight issues, going through the Yo-yo effect of dieting over the years, each time gaining back a little extra, making the scale continues to climb. I realized that I needed to make a complete lifestyle change.
I did research on all the bariatric weight loss procedures available prior to making my decision and truthfully, I knew the Lapband wasn’t for me, given the amount of weight I wanted to lose. I read a number of reviews of SmartShape all of which were positive and I knew SmartShape offered the “tool” I needed to help me get to a healthier and more comfortable place in my life.
It wasn’t until I talked to the surgeon, whom I know quite well, for my consult that I decided to go with the Gastric Sleeve. It was an easy decision for me.
My experience was amazing. As a healthcare professional myself, I had very high expectations. However, from the moment of check-in the day of surgery to the moment I left the care was impeccable. The nurses were extremely attentive and I couldn’t have asked for better care.
I have used the dietician post-operatively. It’s nice to have someone to bounce ideas off of or have them offer you alternatives to help with your success in the journey.
I can’t say enough great things about my experience and the results I have had so far. And I’m very excited for the latter half of this journey.
