My Story Of Weight Battle

Posted by Toni - April 6th, 2017

My name is Angelika, my battle with weight all started when I was pregnant with my first child. I won a lot of weight during pregnancy and after rather than lose, I felt like I was getting fatter and more. I tried all the resources: pills, exercise, low carb, South Beach diet, patches. If I did lose some weight it was just very short term and soon after ended with an equal weight as before the diet. At one point my weight gain led me to the doctors and was diagnosed with insulin hyper hyperglycemia.

Everyone said it was the fact that the overproduction of insulin would be very difficult to keep weight down. I never gave up though, because it was so difficult to live with excess body weight, surrounded by friends and relatives thin, which only told me I had to eat less, without fully understanding my condition. In the summer of 2003 reached 260 pounds, at that moment I knew I had to take more drastic option I started looking for the option in the weight loss surgery. At that time the most popular choice was the gastric bypass, but it was very alarming to me that the mortality rate is 1% and one of my coworkers who had done everything he told me what happened and showed me the scar. By the same author: Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr.. It seemed that life after gastric bypass was not so simple as mentioned in the medical websites.

She suffered from digestive problems, sensitivity to many foods, hair loss, anemia, and after everything that happened never lost any weight. He said that at one point just stopped losing weight. While doing research I found la Lap Band or Gastric Band, the procedure was safe, minimally invasive, adjustable and affordable. Also, it should not be much time away from work and based on what I read would be safe to have another child in the future. When I found the website of Dr. Arturo Rodriguez, impressed me a lot of credentials and diplomas and though I had doctors available closer to , I traveled to Monterrey. I was a little scared, but I did not want the fear metiera between me and my goals. So I booked for the earliest date, so I did not have to think about it and just get it. As I write my story is my six years since I have the band. I can not say how many ways the weight loss has improved my life. What makes the band, mostly to the success for me is that I managed to keep the weight off for almost five years and the fact that I am currently five months pregnant and the band is not interfering in any way and am going through a healthy pregnancy. Thanks Dr. Arthur. I could never have done it without your help. Surgeon as obesity surgery and gastric band gastric sleeve.
