Best decision I ever made
My story starts out like many of yours. I have been heavy my entire life. I was looking at 40 and was the biggest I’d ever been. My knees and ankles hurt on a daily basis. I was constantly uncomfortable whether it be constantly adjusting my clothes or to trying to fit into a booth at restaurants. I had lived the first part of my life obese. I wasn’t about to finish it off that way too.
A good friend of mine had successful weight loss surgery and by following her, I realized just how far medicine had come in the area of Bariatrics. I knew right away it was what I wanted for myself. It took a year (mostly due to my insurance) but I finally had my surgery July 20th with Dr Udelhofen. I am a week post op and I feel fantastic. I am already down 15 pounds since I signed my surgery consent. My blood pressure is better and I am sleeping amazing!
The staff at Journeylite are amazing. Not only are they very knowledgeable, but a lot of them have had a procedure themselves and understand your journey. They are reassuring and kind, compassionate and understanding. The girls in precert were amazing when it came to dealing with my insurance (I have one of the worst when it comes to getting approvals apparently). I have not met one person there that I didn’t like or feel comfortable around. Dr U was amazing! Friendly, positive and encouraging the entire process, even when my insurance first denied my surgery.
My only regret is not taking charge of my health sooner. I can’t express how happy I am with my medical treatment at Journeylite. I am a true believer that they saved my life; because the way I was before wasn’t really living; It was just going through the motions. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment with Journeylite. If surgery isn’t your goal, they have medically supervised diet programs that are amazing. Take my word for it, you’ll be glad you did.
