Case 30

Case 30 Weight Loss Before and After

Dr. Amr,
I just wanted to write this note to thank you and your staff for helping me make one of the most important decision in my life.
It has been one year since I have had my Gastric Sleeve procedure and I have to say that it was the best decision that I have ever made outside of marring my wife. When I first made the decision to come to your office I was in bad shape. I was 487 lbs and was starting to have trouble move any distance without having to stop constantly and take a breather. I did not want to live that way any longer and finally had enough.
You and your staff welcomed me in and gave me all the needed help, knowledge and encouragement that I needed to make my decision and feel good about what I was doing. The first thing that made you stand out to me was you wanted to know who I was not why I was here. You wanted to get to know the person and not just talk about what you can do for me. I really appreciated that and that is ultimately what made me finally decide to go through with the procedure and change my life forever.
I am now one year out and have lost over 150lbs. This is in no way my stopping point. My goal is to be around 250-270 lbs. by the time I have the excess skin removed and finally done with any procedure related to weight loss.
So once again Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! You basically helped save my life and gave me back my family!!!
Sincerely,
Jarimie Holdgraf
