As a young woman and mom to an energetic toddler, Lindsey was entering an exciting phase of her life. But her weight - and the health risks associated with it - were taking a toll. "I was already borderline diabetic and borderline hypertensive, and suffered from terrible migraines," Lindsey says. Beyond the health issues, her weight made her want to blend in with the background. "Before the surgery I was shy and never wanted the attention on me," she says.
Fast forward to her recovery from her gastric sleeve surgery, and Lindsey no longer minds being the center of attention! "It truly has changed the way I feel about myself. I love the energy I have now to run around after my 2 year old son without getting out of breath or tired," she says. Best of all: the migraines are gone, and she no longer has any issues with diabetes or high blood pressure.
"The Surgical Weight Loss team was wonderful," Lindsey says. "They each played a very important part in my successful recovery and weight loss. If asked to do it all over again, I would say yes in a heartbeat!"
