"I know the surgery was one of the best decisions of my life." —Samuel, Ridgecrest, CA
The reason I got surgery is because I was thinking of my family. I have two small girls. It was difficult to do anything with them. I wanted to be around to see them graduate and get married. I also wanted to be healthy and have energy. I wanted to be enthusiastic about life. I felt depressed.
Now, I am a better me. I want to share my testament to anyone else who is having doubts about whether they can make changes. I feel like I still have a lot to do but I see the drastic changes. I know the surgery was one of the best decisions of my life.
