I’d like to first thank Dr Zapata and his wonderful staff for saving my life. This has been an amazing journey and the Monterrey Bariatric staff made it all possible. Ive never felt so beautiful and healthy in my life. I went from a high weight of 234 to a current 130 in just slightly over a year! Ive done things I never thought I would do, Ive gone swimming, taken a plane ride, para-sailed, gone hiking, gone zip lining, ridden in roller coasters, jogged, and scuba dived, and for once in my life I wasn’t self conscience about ANYTHING!

Before surgery I didn’t even want to leave my house in fear of who might see me and make fun of me. Now I have a “look at me” attitude! My life no longer revolves around food! Clothes shopping is my favorite hobby now when before my daily outfit were sweat pants now I wear everything I always wished to wear when I was heavy. Im the happiest Ive ever been in my life and I owe it all to the sleeve. If I had to do it all over again I would do it in a heartbeat and the only Dr I would trust is Dr Zapata!!
