I had tried losing weight many, many, many times before working with Dr. Brown. It was always lose a few pounds, gain more back. This struggle went on for several years, around 40. My blood pressure was increasing as well as my cholesterol. And I was tired all the time. In addition my Sleep Apnea was getting worse. Sleep was quite a challenge.
My wife, who’s also a patient of Dr. Brown’s, and I have a close friend who went to Mexico to get a gastric bypass surgery, several years ago. His progress after surgery was remarkable. My wife was the first to begin researching local answers for this same transformation; we did not want to go to Mexico. After researching the local availability we went to Dr. Brown’s introductory meeting. After meeting him and understanding his approach to this issue, we both decided, he’s our man. My wife was the first to begin this journey back in 2017. I went through her pre-surgery, surgery & post surgery experience doing the same thing she did. I lost weight as well.
Dr. Brown is not just a surgeon. He has a well rounded approach to correcting years of bad habits. He surrounds himself with knowledgeable people, who also subscribe to his approach. He has a program that, if followed, will make you successful. He is a Leader!
Switching to a low carb diet was successful for me. However I soon jumped back to my overeating habits. It was clear to me that after my wife’s experience that the surgery was important for me. I worked hard on the habits of chewing 25-40 times and waiting between bites. This was successful and I did lose a little weight. However the surgery was the deal breaker. It made everything work!
My blood pressure is down to a very reasonable range. I currently take 25% of the medication I did before surgery. My Cholesterol is down and I no longer take any medication for it. I have ENERGY that I haven’t had in 30-40 years. My sleep has improved greatly. I currently no longer use a CPAP machine for sleep. I am only 5 months out from surgery and have almost reached my goal weight. Only 8 pounds to go! Life is good!
