My first “wow” moment was when I truly realized that my body and my life were drastically changing… when I sat in the car and noticed that my belly was no longer touching the steering wheel. And the “wow” moments keep coming: sitting in a restaurant booth, reaching my shoelaces, shopping in the ‘regular’ departments, walking up and down stairs, and most importantly, having energy to enjoy my family. Yesterday, I put my new kayak in the river. It was liberating to be able to get in and out of the boat, to fit in the seat, and to not worry about it sitting too low in the water because of my weight. As I paddled, I couldn’t stop grinning. I am free.Dr. Cavazos is an excellent surgeon and I had no difficulties or problems with the gastric bypass procedure. He is also a kind and non-judgemental physician. The office staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Sage Bariatric!
