Losing Weight with Bariatric Surgery

Read personal stories from Palomar Health patients.
Ron: Surgery Saved Me
“My whole lifestyle has changed. I recently bought a donut and only ate half. I’ve eaten half a dozen donuts but never half of one donut.”

Cathy: Taking Control
“I was approaching 50 and didn’t want to live the second half of my life not being able to do the things I enjoy… I knew being extremely overweight was taking a toll on my health and I was concerned because of a family history of heart attacks and diabetes.”
Charlene: Finding That “Skinny” Person
“Since my surgery, I have lost about 100 pounds and found that ‘skinny’ person that I always knew I could be. I have hope, regained my confidence and am embracing life.”
Ellen: Renewed Confidence and Energy
“I have more energy to do the things I love again. People see the outward change, but there are a lot of changes that need to take place internally to achieve permanent weight loss. I’m still working on that, but it gets better every day. I am ready to dream again.”
John: Rebuilding Life
“I’m off all of my medications and I’m no longer depressed. … Best of all, I’ve married the love of my life, who I met at a support group for patients who have had bariatric surgery.”
