My first impression of Dr. Sloan that he was very educated and informative. He was quiet but when I had any concern or question he took the time to explain it. His staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He and his staff do a great job emphasizing the importance of aftercare. I do however wish there were more post-op classes on nutrition and behavioral content. I know other patients would not have wanted more but i wished there was an option for me as an individual. All the staff make sure you know that you can call or email with any questions or concerns. Overall Dr. Sloan and his staff are caring, knowledgeable, and informative.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster. I would feel bad about my weight so I would eat more to make myself feel better.

My name is Jenn and I will be having gastric bypass on August 29, 2011. I am actually not at the heaviest I've ever been. My heaviest weight was 365. In high school I was average size I fluctuated between 155-170lbs. Around the age of 20 I gained about 40lbs and never really tried to lose the weight. When I hit 260lbs I realized that I need to do something so I went on the opti-fast diet. I lost 60lbs and felt great. Within a year I gained it all back and then some. When I had my son in 2009 I weighed my heaviest at 365lbs. Six months after I had my son I went back on the opti-fast and got down to 240lbs. I was so proud of myself until I gained it all back. Every time I lose weight it seems to creep right back on.
At this point in my life I am married, and have a beautiful family. It makes me so sad to think that I cant get on the floor to play with my son. I cant run around with him like I want to. I really feel like this surgery will help me get to place I need and want to be.
I hope to find positive support on this site and hope I can be a positive supporter to anyone in need.
