Steven - 250 lbs. Weight Loss

Life is just wonderful, but that is okay, because it is going to get better!

Three years ago, at 450 pounds, I had a hard time walking from one end of my house to the other without becoming exhausted. I never went into the basement because it was too hard to get back up the stairs. My doctor told me that on a scale of 1-10 my chance of having a heart attack was a 9. I was taking 18 pills and 70 units of insulin daily. I was mentally and physically thinking about, and preparing to die.

In 2008, I met Dr. Cottam and his team – what a great bunch! On July 14, 2008, I had a gastric bypass and my life changed forever!

Now, everything I do is exciting to me. It is fun to mow the lawn and shovel the snow, even when I know it is going to melt in an hour. It is wonderful to be able to do these simple things that I could not do before.

I have lost 250 pounds and feel great! My blood pressure is now 120/70 and the doctor has declared that I am cured of diabetes. The only pills I take are vitamins and minerals. By the way, I will be 72 years old this year!

When people ask me how I’m doing, I say “I’m doing absolutely stupendously wonderful, but not to worry, I am going to get better!” Gastric bypass surgery has given my life back to me!
