Patient Success Stories - Meet Steve Printer Friendly Version Printer Friendly Version Share

Steve Head Shot

What was the biggest challenge or concern that led you to decide to have weight loss surgery?
It’s been over six and half years since I had my Gastric Bypass.  It was going to be a tough road, but I was making changes in my life for good.  Having weight loss surgery was the best decision I have ever made.

What type of weight loss surgery did you have? Gastric Bypass

Steve Weight Loss

How much weight have you lost?
My highest weight of my life was 420 pounds.  Today my current weight is 240 pounds.

How has weight loss surgery changed your life?
I go to the gym on a daily basis.  I’m in the best shape of my life.  Have more energy to work, play sports or to go out with friends.  Love shopping in normal stores for clothes.  I have done mini triathlon, ran 5k runs. Wish I had decided to have the surgery sooner.  To thank Dr. Fitzgerald and his most amazing staff.
