Client Profile: Leon
I had Gastric Bypass June 21, 2012, and have been absolutely amazed with the results. I have worked very hard to stay on the journey that Dr. Chae helped me to start, and I am grateful for the amazing help that the National Bariatric Center gave me. I have never had any ill effects from the surgery, and have not been sick a day since it was performed.
Dr. Chae told me it would save my life, but I never expected it would make the difference it has. I was very limited physically prior to the surgery due to the weight and arthritis in my left knee. I still have the arthritis, but I can do almost anything I want now including hiking and as much physical exercise as my schedule allows me to complete. I travel almost all of the time for my job, and losing the weight has made that absolutely simple compared to my “old life”.
My wife and daughters are very excited because they know I will now have a chance to be around for them in the many years to come.
