Before Dr. Ismael Cabrera did my VGS Surgery 06/12/2014 my Weight was 278 lbs., Ht. 5’4″, BMI 47.7, & I wore size 24 women’s pants & size 3x shirts. I was on BP meds before for Hypertension & my HgbA1c was elevated to where my Dr. said I would need to take Diabetic meds. I decided I needed to focus on becoming a “healthier” me.
As of 02/01/2014 almost 8 months post surgery my Wt. 182 lbs & BMI 31.24. I no longer have to take meds for Hypertension, all my labs are normal, my blood sugar is no longer an area of concern for Diabetes, I sleep better, feel better, & I have more energy. I can wear size 14 pants & size large shirts. My goal to reach 140-142 lbs. Thank you so much, Dr. Cabrera, Ron Elli Founder & President of MBC, & Cindy Rios RN.
These are the size 24 Jeans I wore 06/11/2014 on the plane to TJ the day before my surgery.
