Reggie: I always lived a large life. I was a big man, and I loved to eat. I'd say the weight gain was definitely the tipping point, you know, for me.
I got introduced to Summa's bariatric team, Dr. Wells, Dr. Pozsgay. And they said this was something totally doable. They assured me right off the top, you could do this. I'm so glad I did.
Since the bariatric surgery, my diabetes, under control. Blood pressure, under control. The best thing of all, I'm off of nine pills total. That's a lot of pills.
I lost a lot of weight, but I gained better health, a better life. And I feel so much better. And I told Dr. Pozsgay and Wells, I said, "well you ain't seen nothing yet!" It's a real game changer. It's just fun. I'm a cheap date now, you know.
