Hello my name is Jenine and I had gastric sleeve on August 27, 2015. I live in Miami,fl and I am 36 years old. I am married to my husband of 18 years and have 2 children, 8 and 14. I have been obese as long as I can remember.... I met my husband when I was 16 years old and remember that day very vividly....I was depressed because I had weighed myself at a grocery store and weighed 275lbs. At that age I carried my weight very well and loved to dress up so, I didn't feel ugly but rather disappointed that I still had not done anything about my weight problems. Nevertheless I went on about the rest of my day when I came across the cutest boy, he got my phone number and the rest is history!!! I have throughout the years lost weight through dieting but always gained it back plus some. I found myself weighing 348lbs and literally dead inside. Nothing brought me joy, I hated going out, I hated to get out of bed and really only did it because of my family. I tried for 3 straight years to have gastric sleeve and for one reason or another couldnt ever do it. FInally my obgyn gave me my final push and said he was going to help me get the ball rolling, and that's exactly what he did. Dr. Alvarez-Perez, you are a rockstar!!!!! I had my surgery August 27,2015 at Hialeah hospital and am down a total of 33lbs (2 weeks out) I AM SO HAPPY!!!! My life is being given back to me day by day and I am so grateful to all the doctors that really, truly had my back throughout the entire process! I AM ALIVE again!
