"I feel good and I am very satisfied." —Elsa

My weight experience pre-op has always been a lifetime struggle. Having been an overweight child to young adult I struggled with knowing what to do to lose weight. I tried several services and lost 10-40 pounds but always gained it back after some time. I became pre-diabetic and my doctor told me I would be diabetic within 2 years. I thought about the surgery for over 1 year and met with the UCLA team to consider it. Meanwhile I tried to lose weight without much success so I knew my time was limited for the sake of my health.

My surgery experience was well researched and highly informed by the UCLA team. I found the information given was detailed and understandable. The hospital stay was well staffed and I felt well taken care for. The weight loss has been steady, the 1st month was a bit difficult but I was aware of the challenges of a liquid diet. I told myself this is all for a good health and now I am there. No prediabetes, no high blood pressure, no morbid obesity. I feel good and I am very satisfied.
