I am a CDL Delivery Driver. I've had problems with Diabetes since 1997. I was to the point of losing my CDL License because the Diabetes got out of hand. I had to either go on Insulin, or have Gastric By-Pass Surgery. I chose Gastric By-Pass Surgery for Diabetic reasons, and to improve my health conditions. Before making this decision I weighed 334 pounds. When I had the surgery done in January of 2009, I weighed 297 pounds. Today, I was weighed at my PCP's office, I now weigh 198 pounds!! I am off my Byetta, and Glucovance, which are diabetic medications.I am off of cholesterol medications: Tricor, and now only take 1/2 a pill of Simvistatin, and in my next PCP visit in 3 months, the DR. feels I will be completely off Simvistatin. Blood Pressure has come way down, he feels in his next visit I will go from 100mg to 50 mg of Cozaar. I have gone from a size 50 inch waist down to 36 inch waist size. I have stuck to the program that Dr. Felix and Dr. Wilcox has prescribed, and I haven't experienced any set backs. This has been a WIN WIN situation for me, and I feel Great. I have never been this thin, but most importantly, I am Healthier. I wish to thank both Dr. Felix and Dr. Wilcox for performing this surgical Procedure on me, and I highly recommend it to everyone health issues. They truly can help you, but it is up to you to make it work.
