Tonya's Story

Tonya Patient StoriesI battled obesity throughout my life, and it began to take its toll on my health. I developed hypertension, diabetes, chronic back pain, depression, high cholesterol—the list goes on. I became dependent on medications to control every aspect of my health. It was an unhealthy, vicious cycle. The day I reached 325 pounds, I decided that enough was enough!

The decision to have Roux-en-Y surgery changed my life. Within thirteen months after surgery, I am 145 pounds lighter, medication free, pain free and full of joy and energy. Choosing to have this procedure was like choosing to live again!
