I have been ‘heavy’ since I was about 9 or 10 years old. I can remember going to the doctor (my pediatrician) at the time and having lost 3lbs, we went out and ‘celebrated’ with ice cream! How sad is that! Here I am struggling with weight most of my life, I done weight watchers, slim fast, lifetime member to Jenny Craig, atkins, south beach, starvation, phen-phen, redux, meridia, and all in all about 30 different diets, and programs. I’d lose it, then gain that and then some back…EVERYTIME! I’ve heard the snotty comments, all the fat jokes, the whispers, the stares, I’ve lived the embarassment and humuliation of not fitting in chairs, rides, through pesky gates at concerts etc first hand. I got married 4yrs ago to a handsome fit & healthy firefighter/paramedic, I’m a nurse and EMT so my lifestyle is active, problem being, I just couldnt “LIVE” my own lifestyle. That got me to thinking more about my weight, I’d done some light research on Lap Bands, and Gastric By-pass as well. All I done for 6 years was think about it. Late summer ’06 my life changed forever! We had our daughter, a far beyond words beautiful blessing! My perspective changed completely! I didnt gain a lot of weight only 17lbs and was down 22lbs by my 2week check up so I thought I was doing good. At her 1st birthday I was back up 4lbs shy of my delivery weight (the highest I had been at that time in my life) I always made light of my weight, I told the ‘fat jokes’ before someone else could tell me, I tried to hide all the pain…only those close to me could see through my game. So I began the initial steps (as I had before with other bariatric centers) I went to the info seminar, I met the surgeon, then things got put on hold, I began to have back pain in may’08. I now have herniated disc (L4-5) in my back, on top of my knee injuries/problems that I tried to pawn off on basketball, volleyball etc. My life STOPPED when I couldnt take care of my daughter, myself or even my dog for about 7wks! I was devistated! My world & life as I knew it crashed! I prayed for God to help and heal me. I prayed and God gave me peace about my going forward with lap band surgery and God spared me from emergency back surgery! I’ll be 30 at the end of this year, so this is a new lease on my life! Shortly after our little princess turned 2, I took my steps farther than ever before and had the band procedure done 9/30/08 by Dr. Curry. He was by far the best I’d found in my researching, about 8 years now (and before Dr. Curry went into ‘bariatric’s only’ he operated on several of my husband’s family members injuries due to farm accidents) so I had already seen his work! HAAHAA All jokes aside, from the initial phone call to recovery to my current follow up, the team is AMAZING!! They are ALL so compassionate, understanding, caring, fun and helpful. They never make you feel like and idiot for ‘stupid’ questions. They are LITERALLY there for you 24/7! I’m ONLY 10 weeks post-op. I’m down 24lbs as of my 8 week check up! HOW AMAZING IS THAT!?!?! And this time, it’s staying off, because I have all the right tools, my band, proper nutrition education, amazing support team of my awesome husband, family, and Dr. C’s crew, and the proper motivation…I WANT TO LIVE A GOOD HEALTHY LIFE with my husband, for our daughter! I’ve already noticed an amazing change in my back, and my neuro-surgeon has put off surgery to let me lose more weight to help my process along and back heal. Both teams of doc’s are completely supportive of one another, and they all have the same goal, to see me healthy! THANK YOU to Dr. Curry and his awesome staff! You guys are amazing, and have totally given me the chance at a healthy life for the long-term. Saying thank you isnt enough! I’m getting so many compliments on looking good, I’m just happy with feeling good! I’m nowhere near my goal, but I’m well on my way! I’m doing great, I feel great, I have so much more energy and motivation. I cant wait to keep living life, I can already do so much more with my little girl!… I believe this is a personal choice, and for me it was the perfect choice. I make a little drive to see Dr. Curry and his team, but I wouldnt have it any other way! If anyone is considering a bariatric procedure, and banding is an option, I highly reccomend it, ok 100% reccomend it! If you’re looking for any bariatric go anywhere, but if you’re looking for the best, STOP HERE! THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING YOUR HEART DR. CURRY! ~Marcie~
