Julie S. - My Story

Gastric Bypass  |  2017

My Life Before Bariatric Surgery

Before surgery, I was always tired and had no motivation. I would always hide in a corner ashamed of myself. If I went to an event with my friends, I had a hard time fitting in the chair.

I had high blood pressure, daily heart burn, high cholesterol and was borderline diabetic. 

Making the Decision

I spoke to my doctor about my weight. He informed me that I would not be able to lose the weight without surgery. I had a friend who had the surgery 6 years prior; I spoke to her about the surgery and she helped me make my decision. 

My Barix Clinics Experience

The Barix Clinics could not have been better. From the beginning, everyone was very helpful--from making appointments, insurance questions, visits and support. The follow up calls, letters and support have been fantastic.  I would highly recommend them. 

How My Life Has Changed

I am off of all my meds. I no longer have heartburn and my blood work has been great. I have more energy so I joined a gym and work with a trainer. I bought a bike to go bike riding. When I go out, I no longer hide behind people or objects hoping people won’t notice me. It feels amazing to have extra room in seats at events or even when flying. This is the best decision I could have made. 

To Those Considering Surgery

I would highly recommend surgery to anyone that is committed to the lifestyle change. I have to work at it every day, but it is worth it to be healthy.
