Lee Anne: 190 lbs. Weight LossSubmit Your Testimonial
In the third grade I started in a new school. I can still remember how cruel the other children were. I was called names like “Fatso, Slim, Hippo”. In the eighth grade I wore a size 20. High School was very miserable. I was the outcast. I was never chosen to be on any teams. I was never invited to parties or asked to a dance or even asked out for a coke after school. Besides the way I was treated by people, my health was very poor. I was on oxygen several times; I had asthma, and quite often ended up with pneumonia. I had problems with depression, back, leg and ankle pain. I could hardly move.
For over 20 years, I had wanted to have the gastric bypass to lose weight however, I never had the opportunity. A friend of mine suggested I see her physician; Dr. Christina Richards. I made my appointment with Dr. Richards, and my life totally changed — I found hope and the start of a wonderful new life. My Gastric Bypass was September 13, 2005, and I lost 190 lbs. I feel great; people I have worked with over the last 24 years treat me totally different. I have been able to do things with my kids and grandkids that I have never done. I ride bikes, have been on rides at amusement parks, swim, dance and have even tried roller skating.
I would recommend a Gastric Bypass, with Dr. Richards and her team, to any morbidly obese person. They are so supportive and really want you to succeed they will be there from the beginning and forever.
