JESSICA TESTIMONY - bariatric surgery - before and afterHas lost 45 kgs.

Hello, my name is Yessika Jimenez and I want to share my life experience. I got a gastric bypass on November 4, 2008. Before surgery I weighed 98.5 kgs. and my BMI was 41. My diet after surgery was immediately liquids, then porridge, after minced food and then normal meal. The process was very surprising as after surgery I ate less than a quarter of what you normally eat and it was amazing how I felt full with so little. With food that I loved there were times when I ate it without measuring the amount of food I was ingesting but the body did not accept it the same way before surgery, which is why when I over ate something I would through it up. Currently I don´t suffer from hunger because I feel full with what I eat and I must admit that my life changed completely after bypass.

I remember that before the surgery it was difficult to find a partner, or a boyfriend, I was commonly teased by my physique and my self-esteem was deteriorating and that was when I took refuge in more food. It was sad because every time I got on the scale I weighed more and I couldn´t tolerate the thought of staying alone because of the same situation, without having a partner, or being able to have children, Since the gynecologist had mentioned that I had to lose many kilograms in order to have kids.

Obesity makes you the “perfect target” to be discriminated by society. I remember once I was denied the opportunity to have a better job because of the fact that I was fat.

In addition to all this it was evident that I could not do things that I liked. For example: dancing, it was something I loved, but couldn´t because of my knees and could not bear prolonged standing. Simply fasten the shoe laces, or cut my toenails …. it was horrible. I definitely did not like what I saw in the mirror, so I met someone who told me about the surgery and although at first I was not convinced of it (just because of the economical issue) I can now say that it was really worth it.

I can not say more than a thousand thanks for all the support Dr. Rojas with the help of the team that took care of me throughout the process of surgery. He is more than an excellent doctor but especially an excellent and wonderful human being. Thanks for the support you gave me not only to me but also to my family, who obviously was also involved in the whole process of Gastric Bypass

Today I am happily married and Thank God I have two beautiful children, things I never would have.
