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.

A New Day A New Dawn
posted 2/11/13 1:57 pm

The dark cloud has lifted, thank God and thank you to all of you who sent words of encouragement...let me say this..I am no means trying to be accepted by Man, or a man...these internal conflicts are with myself...believe it or not..I really do LOVE ME!! its what keeps me here...the conflicts do become overwhelming but I know its the enemy's way of convincing me that I'm not worthy...Nobody disrespects me or devalues me..these are things I've done to myself because I only saw what I could see with my eyes...

My encouragement today as it has been before is to see past what you can see with your eyes...they deceive, the scale deceives, your heart will not deceive...God made us in His image so the core of us is all good...I know its easier to see it and believe in someone else before we see it in ourselves but today...I give myself permission to be all that God has created me to be!!! How about that? I am a wonderful person who loves Jesus and His children..nobody or this body will keep me from that....

BAM!! I love you all so much!!!!
