Rebecca Sellersburg

Before gastric bypass surgery, I had a lot of health issues. I felt sick all the time and my quality of life was very poor. I had high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, tachycardia, sleep apnea and polycystic ovarian syndrome.  I was on a ton of medication and would get so upset about my health in general that I became very depressed and ended up on an antidepressant as well. I couldn’t run around and play with my kids even when they begged me to. I would try, but after a few minutes, I was out of breath and felt like I would pass out. I couldn’t stand to see the disappointment on their faces. I had a terrible time just trying to get up off of the couch and struggled to bend down to tie my shoes. I just couldn’t stand it anymore and knew that my life could be more than what it had become. That’s when I looked into bariatric surgery.

After a successful gastric bypass surgery, I have lost 110 lbs! I feel great! Life has become more than I had ever imagined. My health improved significantly and I was able to come off of almost all of my medication. I no longer have high blood pressure, sleep apnea, or polycystic ovarian syndrome. My quality of life is outstanding. Now I can out run my kids and have more energy than I ever had before. We play outside, we ride bikes together, swim and go skating. Now I can finally make the impact on their lives that I really wanted too all along. I no longer have any trouble getting up from the couch and bending down to tie my shoes has become something I don’t even think about anymore. I am no longer depressed, I’m enjoying my life!
