“I can walk, I can work, I can LIVE again! I’m here for my family, and I expect to be for many years to come!”
I was dying. I weighed 427 lbs, and couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, couldn’t do my job, had no strength and no energy. I was very likely less than 6 months from a heart attack, and I was at the end of my rope. I found out about the Lap-Band, and joined the Original Southern California Bandsters, a Lap-Band support group, and there I met Dr Kuri. Something about me impressed him; I’m not sure what it might have been, but Dr Kuri offered me a Lap-Band and I accepted his offer. It changed my life – it GAVE me an expectation of HAVING a life! I had fought insurance denial after denial, even hiring an attorney to fight for me with absolutely NO luck, so Dr Kuri’s generous offer was truly a Godsend – there was no way I could ever get a band and lose the weight on my own! After being banded, I lost weight at a REMARKABLE speed! I lost 215 lbs in less than 18 months. I can walk, I can work, I can LIVE again! I’m here for my family, and I expect to be for many years to come!
Dr Kuri is a FABULOUS surgeon; the surgery was quick, and for me recovery was painless and easy. I have had no problems with the band except that I am slightly overfilled – which will be corrected next weekend! the journey for me has been exemplary. I can only recommend to anyone seeking weight loss to GET THE BAND NOW!! – DON’T WAIT – every day thin is another day you can LIVE! And, if you are going to get the band, there is no finer doctor to have place it than Dr. Kuri! He and his team are awesome, and their facilities wonderful! – Polarbear Mike
