Elizabeth: LAP-BAND Success
I have always struggled with my weight. I have kept my weight off for two years now, something I have never been able to do. The band has truly saved my life. I have PCKD (polycystic kidney disease) and was told if my kidneys continued to decline that by age 50 I would be in need of a transplant. Since my weight loss my functions are better than someone my age with NO kidney issues.
I have more energy and can do things I never thought possible.
Not only have I changed physically, but mentally. About Dr. Cywes is amazing. I look at food differently. I no longer live to eat and wait for the next meal.
My before picture was a size 18 and I cried when I got those pictures in the mail because that’s when I realized how overweight I was.
My after picture was a size 8.
The band is my “tool” and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
