Weight Loss Transformation Story

Surgery type: RNY/Gastric Bypass
Surgery date: 12/28/2015
Pre-surgery weight: 285
Post-surgery weight: 268
Current weight: 122


Here is a little bit more about Amber's WLS journey:

My name is Amber, I am 32 years old from Temecula, CA. I have struggled with my weight most of my life and tried every diet out on the market. Nothing worked.

I actually almost died in the hospital after my surgery. I got pneumonia in the hospital and was in the hospital for over 3 weeks. I was on a ventilator for a week. Got kidney failure which required two rounds of dialysis. My kidneys were normal before this. It was the scariest time of my life, but I came through.

Having RNY/Gastric Bypass saved my life. Now I feel incredible! I feel younger, no pains and can do the littlest tasks with ease, like tying my shoes.  If I had to, I would do it all again just to feel this amazing!

Thanks BariMelts for letting me share my story!
