Gastric sleeve stories help inspire people who struggle with medical issues or to lose weight with diet and exercise. This is a story of a gastric sleeve patient, who in his own words said, “I have struggled with my weight my whole life.”

Many of us are all too familiar with that statement and Timothy was no different. Timothy’s struggle had escalated due to some medical problems and over a period of two years he found himself unable to workout and constantly hungry.

He decided enough was enough and took the leap to get gastric sleeve surgery.

His gastric sleeve story started on February 29, 2020 after Dr. Venecia Leon Hernandez performed the sleeve at San Juan Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico. Timothy weighed 360 pounds the day of surgery.

Timothy saw the surgery as a jump start to losing weight and hoped it would help him feel great as well.

Within 30-days after the gastric sleeve surgery, Timothy lost 42 pounds and is well on his way to achieving his goal of a better quality of life. When asked to compare life from before his surgery to now he said:

“I feel great. I sleep much better and wake up rested and ready to tackle the day!”

If you are wondering what that day looks like, Timothy’s habits have changed drastically post-op. Most notably he lost his cravings for tobacco, giving up his 2 cans of snuff a day in exchange for paying close attention to his lean protein rich diet.

We cannot help but be impressed at Timothy’s response when asked who his biggest supporter was:

“Honestly I was my biggest supporter. Everyone was worried about my choice and tried to talk me out of it. I’m glad I didn’t listen!”
