Shannon introduces herself and explains when she realized she wanted to have gastric bypass surgery.

Hi, I am Shannon. I am a patient of Dr. Dahiya’s and I had a gastric bypass and I have lost 105 pounds.

I would say, probably a year, about a year ago, and it was to the point where I mean, I was having trouble with, I went and got blood work and my cholesterol was off the charts, my blood sugar was ridiculous, and I have diabetes in my family. Everything on my body ached--my knees, my ankles, my back--and I work retail so I am on my feet all day. And it was pretty much time where it was like, “You’re going to get sick and you’re going to end up dying, or you’re going to fix this.” So that’s what I decided.

I started doing some research on the Internet and got in touch with Dr. Dahiya and went good after that.
