“I had been clinically obese for 12 years. I was diagnosed with multiple
health issues like high cholesterol, diabetes, borderline high blood pressure,
severe heartburn, and severe sleep apnea. These issues caused difficulty
doing menial tasks like washing dishes and doing laundry. I was not the
wife and mother I knew that I could be.
I had Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass at Catawba Valley Medical Center and had
a wonderful experience. The doctors and nurses explained everything thoroughly
and were friendly before and after surgery. I feel amazing and look forward
to inspiring others to go after their dreams. No dream is too big; you’re
worth it. My new motto is, “I can do more than I think I can.”
You can too.
