After finally deciding to have surgery, Pedro Alfaya has lost almost half his weight and could not be happier.
“I have struggled with weight issues since I was a child and had been on the endless yo-yo diet. At a max weight of 330 pounds, I realized I needed to do something about it and I learned about Dr. Rekkas. Initially I did everything required of the program, but I got scared upon approval thinking my life would never be the same, so I dropped out of the program. After a year had passed with no changes in my life, I realized the only thing to be scared of was not changing something.
I finally had the surgery and 10 months later I could kick myself for not having done it sooner. Dr. Rekkas and the bariatric surgery team have given me a life I never knew I could have. I am happy to say that I am now able to run 2.5 miles nonstop when I wasn’t even able to walk it before. I have lost almost 50 percent of my weight and could not be happier. Thank you Dr. Rekkas and the entire team.”
