In 2014, 29 year old Amber came to Dr. McEwen‘s office with a BMI of 48, back and joint pain, elevated blood pressure, reflux and pre-diabetes. She tried multiple weight-loss options and was able to make temporary progress and she was over it! Amber attended one of our FREE info seminars lead by Dr. McEwen. There, she learned about her options and helpful information like what life would be like with a Lap Band. It also gave her peace of mind that the process is reversible and less invasive than many of the other bariatric surgeries on the market.
Amber wanted to make sure she didn’t lose too much weight, she was fearful of becoming “too skinny”. Knowing that she could reverse the Lap-Band if a better alternative were to come out made her feel extremely comfortable and secure in her decision. She also loved the fact that she would have a team of medical professionals on her side helping her to not only lose the weight but keep it off as well.
Over the last 2 years Amber has maintained over 50 pounds of weight loss. She continues her monthly visits with Dr. McEwen as a way to keep on track with her weight-loss journey. Amber continues to enjoy a variety of foods and has a pretty “normal” Lap-Band life! Her over-all health conditions have improved. She goes on walks, shops, has more energy, and is enjoying life without joint pain!
