Alana writes, " I was overweight my entire childhood until I had this surgery, when I was 30 years old. Thinking back, I missed out on many opportunities and pleasures I could have experienced had I not been overweight. However, I am able to put that behind me and focus on all of the positive experiences that the surgery has created for me!"
Alana after a 130-pound weight loss. She says, "Regarding my medical conditions, I no longer need medication to control a condition called pseudo tumor cerebri. I was told this condition is common in obese females and can be cured with weight loss. This condition could potentially cause blindness and that scared me. All of my symptoms, headaches, ringing in ears and pressure on optic nerve, have subsided and I am considered cured!"

"I can't believe how different my life is from just this time last year. My rheumatologist and I were one step away from looking into disability because I was always in too much pain to keep a job. Now I go running and lift weights and best of all I work!"
I just wanted to reach out to you to say thank you! I have not been back to see you since my post surge check up. I am doing well. I have lost 100 lbs. I feel great. It's all thanks to you! What a great gift you have given me and so many others through your good work. Thank you again.
Raritan Bay Medical Center employee, Jeffrey Walker.
Now three months post-op, Jeffrey has already lost 58 pounds, thanks to the surgery and a strong personal support system. -58 pounds in 3 months! Because he works nights, it is hard for him to attend the hospital’s monthly support group meetings, but he is thankful for the 24/7 access to the online support group on ObesityHelp.com,
