Mi nombre es Penelope y tengo 23 años. Desde niña siempre he sido gordita, pero después de la adolescencia, logre alcanzar el peor peso corporal en mi vida! La verdad es que nunca fui una persona con grandes complejos y como siempre fui gorda, tratando de evitar el problema de la obesidad, decidí engañarme y parcialmente "aceptar" esta condición. COSA QUE NO RECOMIENDO A NADIE, indudablemente no debes aceptarlo, mas bien, DEBES buscar la solución para esa terrible enfermedad y aunque sintiéndome así, no quiere decir que vivía plenamente feliz, pues para nadie es un misterio que a todo gordo, le pesa ser gordo. Eso no se discute. Para no profundizar en lo innecesario, quiero decirles a todos que, aunque siendo una persona alegre y extrovertida, en los últimos años como alternativas a la obesidad, optaba con usar vestidos, faldas talla alta desahogadas abajo, entre otras prendas para esconder mi gran barriga. Siempre tratando de vestir caro y lindo, para recompensar lo gorda que estaba. Hace un año, fui a consultar con una amiga donde el Dr. Pablo Garcia. Tenia mucho miedo, dudas, ni siquiera estaba segura de hacerlo, pensaba que iba salir de consulta continuando mi vida como estaba... Fue todo el contrario, he salido muy motivada, confiada y esperanzada! La mejor parte fue tomar la decisión de hacerlo y no me arrepiento. Me alegro no haber esperado demasiados años para realizarlo y aunque no sufría de ninguna complicación, se que con los años iba sufrirlas teniendo hipertension del lado paterno y diabetes del lado materno, ademas con 22 años es difícil sufrir de algo, pero después que? Seguro con el pasar de los años iba ser una mujer enferma y esclava de la obesidad. Haberme operado fue una segunda oportunidad de vivir. Sino tomas la decisión de cambiar tu vida de una vez por todas y para siempre, luego te quedaras con la duda de como hubieran sido las cosas si lo hubieras intentado. DATE LA OPORTUNIDAD. Hazlo hoy, no lo sigas posponiendo. Pues cada día que pasa, es un día valioso que pierdes para cambiar tu vida. El 8 de Diciembre del 2014 fue mi intervención pesando 353.3 libras y hoy 7 de Diciembre 2015 peso 228 libras, con menos posibilidades de enfermedades por obesidad, un cuerpo mas ligero y muy muy feliz. Gracias a Dios, al Doctor Pablo Garcia y su excelente equipo que nos apoyan siempre! Bendiciones!

What is Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure that helps you lose weight by reducing the size and capacity of the stomach. It is a permanent procedure that results in the stomach encompassing only 15% of its original size. The intestines are not removed or bypassed and food is absorbed in the same way. However, after a sleeve gastrectomy you feel full rather quickly and hunger pains are reduced.

 

Why do you feel full faster? The part of the stomach that is removed in a sleeve gastrectomy is the part that was most likely to expand and allow an individual to eat more. Sleeve gastrectomy reduces the level of ghrelin, or “hunger hormone”, permitting pains to be significantly reduced.

 

Sleeve gastrectomy is offered to patients whose Body Mass Index, or BMI, is too high for other types of surgery to be performed. For example, if your BMI is over 50 your doctor may recommend a sleeve gastrectomy to help you lose weight before undertaking other surgeries, such as a gastric bypass.

 

Sleeve gastrectomy is also a good option when a patient has additional complicated health needs, such as a heart or lung problems, as well as being overweight.

 

A Good Candidate for Sleeve Gastrectomy

You may be eligible for sleeve gastrectomy surgery if your BMI is higher than 35. People who have severe cholesterol and diabetes complications should consider this surgery as well. However, patients must be prepared to make substantial changes in their eating habits and lifestyle.

 

Sleeve Gastrectomy Procedure

Sleeve gastrectomy is performed under a general anesthetic using a surgical procedure called laparoscopy – sometimes known as “key-hole “surgery.

 

After the stomach is inflated, a surgeon makes a number of small incisions in the abdomen, rather than the large single incision used in traditional surgery. The laparoscope, or viewing tube, is inserted to perform the procedure.

 

During a sleeve gastrectomy, surgeons remove part of the stomach and the open edges are then re-attached leaving a banana shaped tube or sleeve.

 

Sleeve gastrectomy surgery usually takes less than one hour to complete. This shorter time of surgery is particularly beneficial for patients with heart or lung problems.
