I’m taking only a fraction of insulin, have eliminated some prescriptions, my blood pressure is terrific and my back and knees no longer give me the trouble they did. I still enjoy the wonderful gym and bariatric support services introduced to me at Griffin Hospital.
I underwent Gastric Bypass surgery on March 15, 2011. My post op period went smoothly and I started walking everyday that I could. Eventually, I was able to participate in a more structured exercise program at the gym. I was never hungry and I lost weight steadily throughout this past year. I currently weigh 136 lbs and my BMI is 23.
I lost about 33 lbs on my own and an additional 143 since the surgery – so I went from 387 to 354 and today am just 1 lb. short of my goal to weigh 210 lbs. My BMI was 51 and today is 28.10.
