Before deciding to have my surgery I had yo yo dieted for years. I was very successful at losing weight but would always fall short of my goal and gain it back. I have a family history of high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes, so when my blood pressure started to be unmanageable and my sugar started going up I knew it was time to take my health seriously. The tool I received in September 2018 changed my life. I no longer have pains in my legs and back at the end of the day, I go to the gym instead of sitting on the couch after work and my blood pressure and blood sugar are both excellent. I have moved on to the maintenance phase of my journey and feel confident that I will succeed. I am so thankful to Dr. Huguet , Jenna and the staff at Bay Surgical Specialists for all the support!
