If you're considering weight-loss surgery, you likely have many important questions, some of which you may share with other potential patients: Do I need it? What is it like? Do I qualify? Can I commit? What will my family and friends think?
In order to shed light on some of these questions, we partnered with Tracy, a REALIZE® patient. Tracy's story, entitled, "Heart on My Sleeve," provides a glimpse into her life as she asks herself the same questions, manages her weight and health related issues, and takes control. We hope you'll watch the episodes and visit Tracy's blog to connect with her.
Follow along as Tracy acknowledges her weight and health-related issues, attends a seminar, decides to have surgery, discusses options with her doctor, addresses her family's fears about surgery and embarks on one of the most important journeys of her life.
Read Tracy's stories, see her before and after photos and follow along as she experiences weight-loss surgery.
Tracy is 35 years old, married to her high school sweetheart and the mother of four daughters. She works at a hospital and attends school, majoring in education. Tracy lost control of her weight after the birth of her second daughter, and successive births exacerbated her struggles. She's determined to lose weight for herself and for her family. She dreams of attending a Broadway show, going to the gym with her daughters and most of all, inspiring her family to get healthy. She believes it all starts with mom.
Tracy is honest, optimistic and determined. Her story will help answer the questions so many patients considering weight-loss surgery have.
