Ron’s Weight Loss Story
I was 380 lbs at my heaviest with a bad back condition to go along with a poor family history. My family history was poor and didn’t include me weighing 200 lbs more than each of my parents. I was on pain pills for my back to combat the daily flare ups as well as medication for High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol. My primary Doctor Khalid Aziz (732-662-5650) urged me to get the Gastric Sleeve surgery and on 11/7/16 I did.
In the beginning I was very nervous about the surgery. However, I was more nervous at my life expectancy at my old weight. This was something I needed to pursue for a better life expectancy and better overall health. The dietary changes are easy to follow. This was a major concern because I thought the surgery wouldve left me too restricted. I was glad to be wrong.
This was the best decision I ever made. In the 7 months since my surgery, I have been removed from ALL of my medications. I have a new lease on life. I am more active, pain free, and have a happier outlook on life. I believe this is a direct result of me getting this surgery. For anyone debating about getting the Gastric Sleeve surgery, I would tell them to do it. I would be happy to talk to anyone who may be debating about getting this surgery. My beginning weight was 380 & my weight now is 240.
I want to thank Dr Abkin & the staff at JFK For Life. They truly saved my life.
