Edna M. - My Story

Gastric Bypass  |  2016

My Life Before Bariatric Surgery

I had sleep apnea, diabetes, and high blood pressure. It was hard to get around. I was constantly on a diet and working out at the gym. Despite my efforts, I had no results and was very disappointed.

Making the Decision

I was desperate to lose weight, so much so, that I told my doctor I wanted diet pills. He told me that because I was diabetic, I could not and should not take diet pills. Instead, he set up a consultation at Barix Clinics. After meeting with the surgeon and taking my diabetes into consideration, I decided that gastric bypass would be the best option for me.  

My Barix Clinics Experience

I have always had all of my questions answered during my clinic visits, before and after surgery. My doctor and everyone at the clinic are so nice and full of information—they are all great! I love to attend the monthly support group meetings and participate in the online Facebook support group.

How My Life Has Changed

My lifestyle has completely changed. I am now so confident and full of energy. I enjoy shopping for new clothing and I’m thrilled with the way it fits. My whole life is the best it can be.
