Gastric Bypass Surgery

Hi, my name is Michelle. I had a Medial Gastric Bypass surgery performed by Dr. Myur Srikanth on March 30, 2006. Let me just start by saying Dr. Srikanth and WLS saved my life. Prior to surgery I was 5' 2" tall, a whopping 333 pounds and miserable. I had Sleep Apnea, used a CPAP machine, my hips and knees just killed me, I took NSAIDs (anti-inflammation medications) on a daily basis, I had indigestion so bad I kept the Tums manufacturer in business. I would make excuses to my husband and daughter to not have to participate in family outings that required the smallest amount of physical exertion. I couldn't walk up one flight of stairs without being out of breath and barely able to talk. When I tried to exercise, it always backfired because the slightest workout left me in pain and down and out for at least three days. It was a vicious circle.

I decided things had to change; My daughter was about to give birth, I had a grand-daughter on the way and wanted to be able to do fun things with her, even just getting down on the floor to play. I started doing research on WLS and the local doctors that performed the different types of surgeries. I have a few friends that have had the surgery and asked them every question I could think of. After a lot of thought and discussions with my family I decided to go to a WLS seminar, one that was given by a doctor that was identified as a 'Center of Excellence' by the American Society for Bariatric Surgery, I wanted to make sure I was in the very best hands - that was my new beginning.
