Surgeon Testimonial

Alejandro Aguirre M.D.
My first impression of Dr. Aguirre was pure comfort. From the moment we met I was at ease. The staff all worked with me very well and even though I hardly know any spanish they never seemed frustrated with me, it was like they understood exactly what I was saying...Dr Aguirre and the 2 other doctors have been to see me everyday. I would give him a 10 every time. My incision was sticted with such a delicate hand, I can imagine the scar will be hardly noticable once I'm healed. Dr. Aguirre promised me this one thing, that he can not promise that I wouldn't have issues with my surgery but he did promise he would take care of me, and he did just that..He expressed the importance of sticking to the diet in order to be successful. I would do this over again a million time.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I never was an emotional eater like so many struggle with. My issue was always the inactivity. I would eat and stay in the same place, day after day. Not just at home but at work, the same thing. An office with no windows, and a master suite with all the ammenities. I was a big kid and the older I got, the bigger I got not to mention the weight gain behind 3 children..an abusive husband, dealing with my history of molestation and rape...all these "weights" made dealing with my physical weight very difficult.

There's SoMuch More to this Thing
posted 12/10/12 10:01 am

I cannot express it enough...you can run but you cannot hide...if you do what's in you it will come out...no need to pull, tug, or force it...I'm a living testimony...A made up mind is a beautiful mind...all praises be to the King of Kings...I bless God for the ability to wake up and come to my senses...no more tryna figure it out..when you are following your passion, it drives you to keep moving no matter what it "looks" like...when you follow your passion you possess the boldness to move forward without hesitation, fear, or doubt..you realized doors were never closed when you are following your passion...you realize they were opened all the time but the passion provokes productivity...with that being said...allow your passion to overwhelm you today and take you from the place you were to the place designated for you!!!
 

You can do it, I know you can...If you have had your surgery and you are not yet happy with the results, do something different.  Allow something you love to do be the driving force for your life...no matter what you want to accomplish.  If for all these years you wanted to write a book, go back to school, start a business, travel, sing, dance...whatever your passion is...allow it to provoke change in you today..there are no more excuses...if you want the surgery, get it!!! Its a tool that has taken me from the back of the bus to the driver of the it!

Now that your decision is made up regarding the surgery...what next? I'd love to hear what your passion is!!! What do you think is keeping you from pursuing it? Lets talk about it?
