Carl Lowe, Jr, M.D.
Dr. Lowe is an awesome surgeon... He is friendly, funny, and knows what he is doing... He has a great bedside manner and never seemed to be bother by the numerous questions I had for him... He helped ease my mind right before it was time to go back and that really will be a moment I will never forget... all his staff and even the staff in the OR at the hospital spoke so highly of him and its obvious the resect they have for him... he must be doing something right... I would highly reccommend him to anyone in the Charlotte, Gastonia, Lincolnton areas considering WLS to meet with Dr. Lowe and you will not be disappointed! :)

My story begins like this...As a child I was always "tubby" as my grandpa would say....then as a teen I slimmed down...never really skinny but I weighted about 130-135 and wore a size 10-12...I like my body at that size...then came first pregnancy (with gestational diabetes) and I gained over 75 pounds with her...only lost 30 pounds of the weight I gained upon delivery...When my daughter was 9 months old I found out I was pregnant again....ARG!...and once again had gestational diabetes (insulin dependent)...and packed on another 45 pounds or so...I like to think thats why I am so large today...but that was over 13 years ago...I have had 2 failed marriages and tons of stress...I also use that as excuses for not being able to control my weight...I have tried every diet (Adkins, weight watchers, south beach, etc) and several prescriptions of phentermine... I would lose some weight but then as soon as I stop taking them the weight would come back and then some... I even donate a monthly fee to the local gym... I know I have got to get a handle on my weight before it gets me...currently I have no medical conditions...I have good blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels...but I know not only is there family medical history against me...being 100 pounds overweight is against me... I went to have a gastric bypass consult back in 2003 and was eager to have it done and then a local man who had had it done passed away from post surgical complications which of course freaked me out and I backed out... but after many years of research now I am ready to make a change in my life and get healthy... my children aren't getting any younger and neither am I... I want to spend a long healthy, happy life with them and my fabulous fiancée... so I have my consult on Thursday Feb. 17th... yay... I'm so excited... wish me luck!
