Gwendolyn: For years I struggled with my weight, with the high blood pressure, the diabetes, and the sleep apnea, and I just decided it was time to start doing something for myself. My doctor referred me to the weight management program at Summa Health.
That's where I met Dr. Pozsgay and we decided together it would be a good idea for me to go with the gastric sleeve surgery. It's not a magic bullet. I have changed my eating habits. I'm more conscious of what I put in my mouth now and along with exercising.
Before surgery, my BMI was over 50. I am proud to say my BMI is now approximately 30. When I look in the mirror, now I am a more confident me 'cause I can see the new me, the real Gwen that was here before she put on all this weight. That weight loss surgery was the best decision I made.
