Are you a Band orphan?
Meet Sheila. She had her LAP-BAND System placed in February of 2016. She transferred her care to Dr. Keith McEwen in March of 2016. Imagine her anxiety of having weight loss surgery and needing to find a new surgeon and weight loss program! Dr. McEwen and our weight loss team welcomed Sheila.
Our registered dietician, Lauren Harrison, worked with her on our dietary guidelines and Dr. McEwen set weight loss goals with her for a maximum of 1/2 pound to 1 pound per week. Her initial BMI was 42. They discussed how helpful a food journal would be. Sheila embraced all of the weight loss education and information. She drove 90 minutes each month to visit with Dr. McEwen.
She has improved her BMI from 42 to 32 and lost 52 POUNDS in 1 year. Since her weight loss, she has enjoyed hiking and camping and more. She loves her new level of ENERGY! Her medical conditions have improved. Sheila would like to lose an additional 15 to 20 pounds. She is working with returning to her food journal and working with our weight loss team to meet her goals. Let’s congratulate Sheila on her commitment and dedication!
