I’m Very, Very Happy

Hello, this is Hector, and I would like to say a few things about Dr. Tom and my surgery.

I had surgery back on August 19th. It’s been almost six months since that happened. I’m very happy I went through this.

It took me a year to make a decision. I was very afraid of going through the procedure. You know, it scared me–cutting me up. But I’m very, very happy that I did it and I feel so good about my health.

You know I was borderline diabetic, had high blood pressure–taking high blood pressure medication. I don’t have to take that any more! My tests are normal now. So, just be able to move like a 20 year old again almost, it makes me feel wonderful and happy.

I would recommend to anybody out there that is skeptical about doing this–don’t be afraid. It will be the best thing you’ll ever do in your life. I know it’s been that way for me; that’s how I feel and I want to thank Dr. Tom and his staff for a wonderful job they’re doing and what they’ve done so far with me. I’m very appreciative.

I was 330 lbs at the time of the surgery and I’m down to 240 lbs now. I’m coming down and feeling great.
