Hello my name is Lyne, and I after years of trying weight loss diets, and training I have decided to have the gastric sleeve. Which, I was not even aware of. My current weight is 278LBS, and I am 5' 7 " Tall. The lowest I have even been was 186 and that was last year, however all the weight managed to come back and would not come down! My current diagnosis is : Irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, acid reflux, migraines, back and knee pain . A patient came to me and asked me if I have ever considered. loosing weight, and gave me the name of Dr. Eddie Gomez, in Miami Florida.

At first I was iffy about it, because I wasn't sure that I would qualify, but I prayed about it. Both my sister and I went together to meet with Dr. Eddie Gomez and he was awesome! on 11/15/2012 I was approved and when as original date was 12/07/2012, however I did not do my ends copy ( I was not aware of it). But God is good and Evelyn scheduled me on 12/06/2012 for my endoscopy and my gastric sleeve on 12/20/2012.

I really love his office staff very upfront and very informative!
