I really liked Dr. Lenz from the get go. He seemed very caring and honest. He did a great job with my surgery and I owe him my life! The office staff there is another story. The bariatric nurse whom I never even met until I was 6 mts out would be sick at EVERY apt I had sked w/her. This happened like 5 different times! I think they've moved her out of that dept now so hopefully others will not have the same problem. The aftercare program there could be better. They have support group meeting once a mth but they aren't that structured and I don't go much anymore cuz I don't feel I get much out of them anymore. They did help answer a lot of questions that I had pre - op though. Dr. Lenz explained the surgery very well to me and went over all the risks with me. He has a great bedside manner and I would recommend him to all!

When I started this journey I was 32 years old, married with two children and had NOT been overweight my whole life. I am 5'9 and before I got married I was 145 pounds and a size 6/8. I was very active and even earned "female athlete of the year" my senior year in high school. I played volleyball, basketball and softball. I think I wrecked my metabolism when I was young. I was trying to lose weight after I got out of high school when I gained the "freshman 15" and I got to partying way to much at night and during the day I would eat just a baked potato and an apple. That was it. Then I got pregnant and I knew that we (baby and me) could not live on this and the weight just piled on. I gained 68 pounds with my first son. Just 30 with my second but I never lost it. In fact I gained even more and now I am up to a whopping 270! OUCH! I suffer from horrible heal pain and I am never rested and am so tired and no energy. I have been looking into RNY for a couple of years now and I am ready to make the commitment for a better quality of life. I am very nervous about complications and I have read all of the Memorials on this site but I am still going to go ahead and do it. I am just scared to death something will go wrong and my 8 yr old and 1 yr old will be without a mother. I just have to have confidence in Dr. Lenz and think positive I know. It's just hard and very scary.
