"I struggled with my weight my whole life. But at 18 I had shoulder surgery that made me immobile for 3 months. That is when the weight started to pile on. From there I went to college and the weight gain continued. I was so unhappy with the way I looked and felt. Finally at 25 I decided to do something about my weight. I consulted my primary doctor and she recommended Dr. Rekkas. He literally saved my life. I had the Gastric Sleeve right before my 26th birthday. Now a year and a half later I am 96 lbs down and loving life!"
