Today is the 8th anniversary of the life-changing surgery I had with Dr. Rodriguez. I will be eternally grateful for the gift this surgery has been for my life. I have lost over 130 pounds since then, gone from a Size 34/5X to Size 12/14. I go to the gym and workout almost every day for an hour or more. I finally have my life back! Just before the surgery, when I was 320 pounds, I felt like I did not want to live anymore. Now, I want to live every day to the fullest, and I see my life as a precious gift. Dr. Rodriguez, thank you, so very much, for helping me to do this. The surgery didn’t do it all for me. It has definitely not been the easy way out, and I knew that when I made this choice. But, it was the tool I needed to get my life back on track. I’ll have to dig for a “before” picture, but for now, here’s an after picture from last month. GOD BLESS YOU DR. RODRIGUEZ!!!
