*"I had the gastric sleeve surgery. I recovered quickly from the surgery. I started losing weight immediately. I am able to eat up to 4 oz of food now. I have lost 52 pounds since surgery. I would have the surgery again knowing what I know now. It took a little while to go through the different stages of food I could eat. The liquid diet was the hardest part. Then I went to the puree foods, Soft and solids took a little longer. Getting the recommended amount of protein was a challenge at first but it got easier. The staff at MISH were wonderful; they were all very friendly and helpful" Date of Posting: 13 November 2015

*"I truly believe having the Gastric Bypass saved my life. I was morbidly obese. I broke the 400 lbs mark. I could diet and lose 50-60 pounds then I would plateau and out of frustration, I would gain it all back. I suffered from high blood pressure, migraine headaches, borderline diabetic, and physical pain. In 2009 I chose to have the Surgery, my weight quickly began to fall off. The best part of losing all the weight is my son. I have had 6 miscarriage I was told after a failed tubal ligation I would never be able to have a baby. My son was born 11/21/2013 I am very grateful for him and could not imagine my life without him. If faced with the decision to do the bypass again I would not hesitate, I got a second chance to do it, right this time. And I refuse to let myself go again, I currently weigh 124 lbs and holding steady 6 years later."

*"I can not say enough about the wonderful care I have received at MISH! Right from the start of the process their team was engaged with me and working hard to provide all of the information and support that I needed. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable! The day of surgery the staff went out of their way to make sure that both myself and my family were comfortable and all of our questions were answered. The amount of support and education available post surgery has been as impressive as it was prior to surgery. I can not say enough good things about MISH and their team!"

*"I did the Sleeve surgery in December 2014 and the reasons why I did the surgery was because of the chronic illness and back pain due to my weight. I have not had Bronchitis since February and the year before that i had it 4 times, my animals even notice a difference and come to me more than they used to. My hair has even grown in thicker and healthier than when I was in grade school."

*"I left my doctor one day knowing that I needed to do something really drastic and soon. I have been dieting, losing weight, gaining, dieting and over and over, again and again. On my way home I heard a commercial about the Minimally Invasive Surgical Hospital and a free seminar to find out more. I did some research on the Internet, signed up and the rest was history. I was 465 pounds the day I heard that commercial and in 8 months have lost nearly 20 pants sizes and 170 pounds. I had fears about the surgery but I would do it again and recommend everyone who feels the need to at least look into it and visit a seminar. I didn't talk to an assistant, but the surgeons themselves and it has changed my life forever. I forgot what living was all about, I forgot what it was like to walk more than 10 yards without pain or losing my breath. I can do a mile walk at a great pace and still go further when I have the time. I am doing things now that I haven't done in nearly 20 years. I owe a lot to the surgeons and their expert staff from the smiling faces that greet you to the nurses and the surgeons that. They all will forever be a part of my family and life. This is just a tool, I have to discipline myself and change my life, but they couldn't have given me a better tool to have."
