Shannon Shares How She Felt Before Her Gastric Bypass Surgery (VIDEO)

Shannon explains how she felt leading up to her gastric bypass procedure.

Shannon:
Before my gastric bypass, I had a few fears and really what I think my biggest fear was that I wasn’t going to lose the weight, like because I tried so many diets prior to this and different kind of plans. I had a diet doctor where I did the Fen Phen. I went to Jenny Craig. I have done all different kinds of things, and so I thought for sure that I was going to have this surgery, and so I wouldn’t throw any clothes away even when I started losing weight because I kept thinking okay, it’s just going to stop like it always has, but it didn’t.

And I mean, in ten months 105 pounds and I feel fantastic. My bones and knees and back don’t ache anymore and it’s just, I can’t say enough about this. I mean, my only fear really was that I wasn’t going to be able to do it and obviously I did.
