I had dieted many times over the years and always put the weight back on, plus more. I finally got to a point where I just gave up. My health then started to deteriorate. I started having high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I also ended up having to have a knee replacement. With all of these complications, I couldn’t do things with my family. That’s when I decided to choose weight loss surgery. My highest weight was 284 pounds in June, 2015. I had my surgery 03/28/2016. I am now at 155 pounds. I chose Dr. Mirza because he was so attentive and took the time to explain all of my options. He treated me like a person not just a number. Dr. Mirza made a special appointment for me, spent more than an hour discussing the surgery options with my husband and me and answering our questions. He never rushed to get me out of the office at any of my appointments. Dr. Mirza’s staff is great, too, and they treat everyone with kindness and respect. My surgery went very well, and I was surprised I had no need for pain medicine when I was released from the hospital. It’s been a year since my surgery, and my incisions are barely visible. I feel and look better than I have in 30 years! I would say the best thing about losing weight has been being able to move again. Here are some of the simple things I can do again that most people take for granted: (1) cross my legs, (2) stand for more than five minutes without hurting, (3) walk without waddling, (4) walk up and down stairs like a normal person instead of one step at a time or looking for an elevator, (5) fit in chairs and get up and down from a seated position (6) exercise—even though I don’t want to, (7) wear sandals—always had to wear my “ugly” shoes with orthotics, and (8) hold a child in my lap—I actually have a lap now! Also, I no longer have to take blood pressure medicine or cholesterol medicine. I am so happy with my results. I don’t feel like an invalid person anymore. I would recommend Dr. Mirza to anyone that is having trouble with their weight. This surgery has changed my life! It gave me the life back that I once had. My only regret is that I did not do this sooner!
