Sleeve Gastrectomy (12/2012)

Case Of The Month Procedure: Sleeve Gastrectomy

Married couple Robert and Veronica were both obese with multiple health issues. They were fed up with failed weight loss attempts and knew it was time to get serious about getting healthy. Dr. Misra determined both Robert and Veronica to be ideal candidates for Gastric Sleeve. Their surgeries were performed in April of 2012 and as of December they have lost 82 and 81 pounds respectively. They are still on their weight loss journey but are already enjoying improved health and lifestyle.*

Procedure: Sleeve Gastrectomy performed by Dr Monali Misra, MD

Testimonial: Robert & Veronica

After a heart attack when I was 37 years old due to my weight and stress, and my wife’s embarrassing moment trying to close her seatbelt on the plane headed on our vacation to the Bahamas, we decided it was time to get healthy. We had tried everything, “sweating with the oldies,” hip/hop abs, and we cannot forget all the latest and greatest exercise equipment we bought. We lost weight every time we tried something new, but we would gain it right back and then some. I had high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea and my cholesterol was through the roof. My wife also had high cholesterol, sleep apnea as well as diverticulitis. We were in bad shape, and needed to get healthy for our kids and ourselves. Veronica and I had asked our personal physician about weight-loss surgery and she was skeptical, but we started to research it regardless because Veronica and I were getting bigger and bigger with no end in sight.*

That is when we found Beverly Hills Physicians and met with the phenomenal Dr. Misra. She went through all the different procedures with us and answered all our questions. We really took our time researching all the different weight-loss procedures. We decided to get the gastric sleeve procedure, but before our surgery date Dr. Misra and Beverly Hills Physicians made us work with a nutritionist, and that is when we realized we had a bad relationship with food.*

We couldn’t have been happier about our decision to both get the gastric sleeve procedure. I have lost 82 lbs and went from 272 to a current 190 lbs. Veronica has lost 81 pounds and went from 293 to a current 212 lbs. We both are off our cholesterol medication, I no longer need blood pressure medication, I no longer have diabetes and we both no longer have sleep apnea, and now we have a great relationship with food and our bodies.*

One of the weirdest things that has happened is that I’m more attracted to greens and vegetables and Veronica used to like sweets and now some things are way too sweet! Life has been renewed for us, and we are so full of energy now and have a new zest for life.*

We feel great, and look better in our clothes. I feel so much better going up the stairs, I don’t need to take a break anymore, and best of all when I tie my shoes the bow is in the middle and not on the side! Plus I can go shopping now and buy regular size clothing! My self-confidence is up, and I feel much cuter. All we do is follow exactly what Dr. Misra tells us to do, and the results are there. We pay attention to calorie intake and the sensation of being full. We find that we eat so little and get satisfied after smaller portions. We didn’t realize what we were missing out on until we got healthy, and now our marriage is stronger too.*
