I always struggled with my weight. I could always lose the weight nut keeping it off was my problem. A year and a half ago i lost 100# and was feeling great. Fast forward to September 2012 and i put all but 20# back on. I was frustrated and started investigating WLS. I decided that the sleeve was right for me and contacted Dr. Treen and went to a WLS seminar in his office. I signed up that night and filed papers with my insurance. I was very lucky UHC approved on the first try. I had a 41 BMI,High blood pressure and sleep apena. i was approved in scheduled for November 5th,2012.

I had my sleeve surgery on November 5th it went great. I follow all directions to the letter, I don't deviate at all. I've had no setbacks.

Three and a half weeks out and I have no regrets. It looks like the best decision i've made regarding my health ever.
