Before and After Weight Loss Surgery Success

I had my (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass) on August 3, 2009. I was nervous the week before but for some reason I was not nervous the day of surgery. MyNewSelf Bariatrics treated me very well, which includes the doctors and nurses.

Teresa’s Success Story

My journey was really not hard, I hated water at first — it tasted awful. My only problem was getting dehydrated which led me to be admitted to my hospital

where I live.

I did get down to 135 but was told that I was too thin and looked sickly and did become anemic, so yes I did up my weight and I’m very happy with it. (Editor’s note: Teresa started at 255 lbs and is currently at 155 lbs.).

And, yes, as everyone asks —  I would do it again in a heartbeat!!
