These beautiful women all had Bariatric Surgery with Dr. Byrne and Dr. Pullatt through MUSC Health Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Program. In the spirit of being thankful, we recently asked patients to share before and after pictures with us as well as what they were thankful for after having Bariatric Surgery. This is what each of them had to say:
"I'm so grateful that I can now do things with my family and not be exhausted. I'm thankful that I can buy clothes that aren't in the plus-size Department. I'm thankful that I'm no longer on any medication. I'm thankful that I now have confidence for the first time in 30 years. And most of all, I'm thankful that I have my health back and that I actually love myself!"
"I had Duodenal Switch surgery on April 15th of 2019. This is a picture comparing me during Thanksgiving 2018 (left) versus Thanksgiving 2019 (right). It's just a blessing to be able to do the simple things that I couldn't do before like walking without being out of breath – I’m thankful for that!"
"This picture compares this Thanksgiving versus 2 years ago! I’m thankful I have more energy, better self-love and my family will have me around for many more holidays! Feel better ...do better"
