Lou Schopfer: Long Term Bariatric Lifestyle - Years After Procedure

Description

In this episode, Janine speaks with Lou Schopfer, a bariatric patient who underwent gastric sleeve surgery in 2014. Since that time, Lou has lost over 100 pounds and advocates for bariatric surgery as a means for transforming the lives of others like himself. He shares the story of his life, from the roots of his struggles with obesity, the questions he had before the surgery, and how his life dramatically improved afterward. If you’re undecided about weight-loss surgery, Lou's Bariatric Journey may help you transform your life for the better. Here’s a brief overview of the topics we discuss:

  • Deciding whether weight-loss surgery is right for you
  • The pre-surgery consultation process and emotions surrounding it
  • Lou’s life post-surgery and what other patients can expect
  • Lou’s story and personal journey through the surgery process
  • Weight-loss surgery is a tool rather than a miracle cure
  • Diet and lifestyle following weight-loss surgery.
  • Lou’s advice for successful weight-loss surgery
