Really Satisfied With the Surgery

Hi, my name is Paula Destrobol and I’m six weeks out from gastric sleeve surgery.

I feel great. I can eat almost anything. I’ve lost almost 20 pounds, 19 pounds and 2 ounces.

I’m really satisfied with the surgery. There was very little pain, very little problems that went with it and all you have to remember is to chew, chew, chew, sip, sip, sip, and eat, eat, eat, and exercise.

Thank you.
