Age: 29 years

Maximum weight before surgery: 112 kg

Recent weight: 55 kg


I tried practically everything . If I heard of a new diet, I tried it. Sometimes I lowered 4 kilos and then I gained 6. I was always looking for a solution. One day, I saw some material about weight-loss surgery brought my attention. I read an article about laparoscopic surgery. I searched for information about it and I consulted my doctor. I had back, hip, knees and ankle problems. After going out shooping, I felt my back killing me. I had just found out that I had developed a heart dilatation due to my weight. I couldn´t play with my children. I was out of breath easily. This whole situation worried me alot.

There is a cancer, diabetes, and high blood preassure history that runs through my family. I knew that my over weight didn`t helped and that made me felt bad. As if were a joke, I say I used to suffer from high blood preassure and low self-steem. And I always lowered my head in public. I simply didn´t wanted to find myself in other people´s sight.

But the weight-loss surgery results surpassed my highest expectations. Even before submitting to the surgery, I had no complications, not even with my insurance. After the surgery being approved, I felt very anxious about the upcoming operation.

Two days after surgery, I was already walking. I had some pain, but I could bear with it. I didn´t put much attention into pain, but to how would I feel later after this.

My family supported me alot. But they were surprised too. When I went to pick up my mother in the airport, she, literally, didn´t recognized me. Since then, I have lost 56 kilos. now I feel wonderfull!. I can play tenis again. I can run. I feel light as a feather. My nutrition changed also. I take 4 small meals a day, approximately a cup of anything. and, to tell you the truth, I don´t feel the urge to eat.

Now, it´s easier to get what I want, To be with my kids, play with them. they used to follow me and I couldn´t follow them. Now, it´s dificult for them to catch me. I love that.


Like in any surgical procedure , weight-loss surgery can present risks. The every patient´s result can vary and there are no indicators of results. Patients must consult their doctors to determine if this procedure is the most indicated for your condition in particular.
