's experience with Evolve Bariatrics

Diana lost 63 pounds in 5 months with the Gastric Sleeve Procedure.

Diana’s advice to people considering weight loss surgery:
“Weight loss surgery is not for everyone, and it’s not a fix-all. But it was the perfect solution for me and some of my friends and family members. Talk to your doctor who will let you know if it’s right for you, and if it is, what you can expect from the surgery and what you’ll have to do to change your lifestyle for the procedure to keep on working for you. My procedure was a great solution for finally putting an end to years of obesity!”

How was your experience with your Patient Care Manager?
My patient care manager was efficient and informative. She explained everything I needed to know, and answered my questions. She let me know what to expect throughout the process. She couldn’t have done any better!

How was your experience with your doctor?
I LOVE my doctor! He made me feel like an important individual who needed help. I’m so glad I was referred to him, and that I selected him to do my surgery. He’s a wonderful, caring person.

Before Surgery:
My life before surgery was dull. I was sluggish and didn’t feel like doing the things I used to like such as camping, swimming and going to the NASCAR races where I had to hike long distances and climb stairs. I felt ugly and uncomfortable about socializing outside of family activities. I had to take blood pressure and acid reflux medications before my surgery, and was diagnosed as pre-diabetic.

After Surgery:
Now I either walk at least 3 miles or swim at least 50 minutes 5-6 days a week, and more if I can squeeze in the time. I like exercising because I feel energized. I no longer have to take blood pressure and acid reflux medicines, and I’m not pre-diabetic anymore. I like socializing and I’m not embarrassed to meet new people now. I can climb stairs now without huffing and puffing! I can swim, go camping, and enjoy going to the NASCAR races. I’m looking forward to a vacation of hiking and white water rafting instead of just site-seeing!
