“My dream has come true.”
Oh my gosh! I received the gift of a life time last year at the TJ Bash. Words just can’t tell you how much I think of both Dr. Kuri and JoAnn Jackson and the wonderful staff at Dr. Kuri’s office and at the TJ hospital. They helped me get my life back and I will be forever grateful to all of them. Dr Kuri is and angel sent from Heaven with this wonderful gift to perform this surgery to help us get back on track.
Without this gift I have no idea where I would be today (closer to death I’m sure). I look at my before photo and cry. I was so very, very unhappy and depressed and now I’m much happier and healthier. I shoveled my own snowy driveway for the 1st time in years. I’m mowing my own lawns and working in my own yard that I love and had been very limited in doing because of the weight I had on this old body .Being that overweight took over my life a little at a time and robbed me of the things I enjoyed. The more depressed I got, the more it took over. I had been on every diet plan known to mankind. I would lose a little weight and then it would come back double.
Being banded has been the only thing that has worked for me. I was so very, very ready to get this weight off. Dr Kuri told me he was giving me a tool and I had to work with the tool. This is so very true if you stick to the game plan it works. As you can see I still have a long way to go, but I now have hope that if I keep doing what I should be doing this will work.
I do fall off the wagon every once in a while but I look at my before photo and get right back on. I never want to look and feel like that again and I never want to take this gift for granted.
Dr. Kuri you mean the world to me and I really do love you for what you have done and helped me do for myself. JoAnn Jackson has been a wonderful gift, an angel in my life also. Without the help from both of them and this team effort I really don’t feel I would be here today or be in the health I’m in today. I’m now off all medication, my blood pressure is back to normal and so is all my blood work. I did this in 8 months what a ride!. This is like being reborn again, getting to do all the things I’ve missed out on for so long. I can walk the mall again without having to sit down once. I can now workout in the gym again. I even go dancing every Friday night. I am happy about life again.
If anyone is on the fence out there about having this surgery, do your research. This worked for me and I’m sure it will work for you if your head and heart are in the right place. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. Much love to both of you Dr. Kuri and JoAnn and all your great staff.
