Sherrel’s Story

Weight Lost: 81 lbs.

sherrel-lap-band-center-of-oklahoma-weight-lossI am a weight-loss work in progress! I am finally having success, and I’m headed toward my weight loss goal thanks to Lap-Band surgery.

The decision to have the surgery was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I had developed all kinds of health issues due to being overweight: type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep issues. Within weeks of the surgery, these issues began to disappear and I was able to stop taking many of the prescriptions I had taken for years.

When I met the staff at the Lap-Band Center of Oklahoma, I was immediately impressed with the positive encouragement I received there. They gave me the hope that Lap-Band surgery would work for me, and it has! The staff are knowledgeable about the Lap-Band Adjustable Gastric Banding System. The care and commitment they have shown during my follow-up visits has been tremendous.

The Lap-Band Adjustable Gastric Band is a ‘tool’ that I will use for the rest of my life to help me continue to eat less and be satisfied with smaller meal choices. For the first time in my life, I know that I will be able to reach my weight loss goal and have the confidence that I will be able to maintain my weight loss efforts.
