Ashley's Success Story
"I’ve been overweight since I was 9 years old. Last year, I was watching a marathon on TV about morbidly obese people. It was then that I realized I had to make serious changes.
I started doing research on the Lap-Band procedure at RMH and liked everything I was reading. I had surgery on July 6, 2010 and have lost 130 pounds in one year! I’m no longer diabetic and I no longer have high blood pressure.
This past year has been fabulous. I never had an “It’s totally not worth it” moment. Even when it was hard, I still knew it was completely worth the effort. My experience with RMH was fantastic. Dr. Garwood and Bonnie [Paine, PA-C] are amazing. They’re always there for me when I have a question.
I love shopping for clothes. Especially at Kohl’s! Before my surgery, it got to where I could no longer shop there. Now, I’m finding things that fit in the junior’s section!
I feel great."
