Candy’s Weight Loss Story

November 19, 2018

My life before surgery consisted of yo-yo dieting, unhealthy lifestyle living, high blood pressure, painful hips and many other medical issues. I was pre-diabetic, had sleep apnea, struggled with metabolic syndrome and was occasionally dealing with depression. My self esteem was at an all time low, and I was so uncomfortable inside my own skin, I felt hopeless.

I spent almost a year doing research on the procedures and doctors that performed them in the surrounding area. Once I decided on my procedure and Dr. Gachassin as my surgeon, I never looked back!

The procedure gave me my life back and affects the way I live to this very day! It’s been an important tool that has allowed me to rebuild my self confidence and my health, and has even given me a renewed lease on life in every facet possible.

My body doesn’t hurt anymore. I don’t stuff myself endlessly with food. I can exercise and see real results as I make progress on a regular basis. I can participate physically in family events. I truly feel that it has extended my life span. I’ve even ran two half marathons for Team and Training for Leukemia, in memory of my dad. My dad has been my inspiration, my husband has been my number one supporter, and Dr. Gachassin has been my number one surgeon!
