Describe your life before you had Weight Loss Surgery.
I had always been over weight since I was a child, but never weighed over 180lbs. In 2014 I had my first child and gained over 50lbs. Soon after had my second child in 2015 and gained more weight. In 2016 I miscarried and was weighing about 290lbs. With the miscarriage came menstrual problems, water retention, swelling, back pain and became pre diabetic.
How long were you considering Weight Loss Surgery before you came in?
In 2016 I had gastric sleeve surgery and lost over 155lbs. I maintained my weight of 135lbs for 3years and decided to have another child. To help baby I had to make myself gain weight and continued to gain weight after I had my baby in 2020. With the weight gain came back pain, reflux and water retention. This all led to my decision for revision surgery.
What was it like to work with our team?
The Del Mar team has been great. Dr. Bhoyrul has been positive and encouraging since the beginning. Rachel has been so nice and helpful.
Describe your life now, after Weight Loss Surgery.
Since my revision to RNY it has been a bit tough. The first four months were tough since I developed a stricture and could not keep food down. Now that it has been fixed, eating has been better. The weigh loss has been slower than I thought but have lost almost all of my regain weight .
