Hello, my name is Sarah. I am 37 and had the gastric sleeve surgery back in June. The decision to have surgery took a long time to reach. I was suffering from type 2 diabetes, had high blood pressure, high cholesterol. So it just kind of came to the point where this was the best option for me.
I came to Blossom because my doctor recommended them and they made the entire process amazing. It was simple. They worked with the insurance and handled all the red tape for me and made everything great.
I felt really supported. I had some other friends that went through surgery in different states that didn’t get quite as much support as I did through this office here, so that kind of made everything better.
The surgery was really simple. I think I was in and out of the hospital in under five hours, which was really great. The recovery time was about two weeks–that I took off of work.
I have made all the goals that I have set for myself. I don’t have to take my blood pressure medicine anymore. I am off of all my type 2 diabetes medicine.
I have more energy. I was able to do some things that I never thought I would do, like make it through Disneyland for two days and ride the rides.
I don’t have to worry about getting on the plane, which was the biggest thing, because that was always a big fear, so it has been a wonderful experience so far.
I am excited to see what else happens in the future and I know it’s been great. I am very thankful for everything that everyone has done for me.
