My name’s Jessica. I’m 24 years old. I had Gastric Sleeve surgery on January 25th. There were a lot of things I couldn’t do in the past that I can do now. As far as physically, working out was never an option for me. I would get too tired, I didn’t have any stamina. Now I work out almost seven days a week, I started my Zumba classes, I get to go bike riding, hiking with my husband, I get to walk my dog, I get to go shopping in a mall with my girlfriends. I don’t have to worry about getting tired. There is just so much that I can do now that I couldn’t before.
With his staff having surgeries, and a variety of them, it feels so great because they do know what you are going through. They understand, they’ve been there, they’ve done that, they’re encouraging, very sweet.
Dr. Frenzel is really great. He, also, is very caring. My first impression of him is really good. He also wanted to help me. He really wants you to be healthy and really wants you to succeed.
I’m most thankful that I made the decision to do it. I know it’s probably the hardest part because you’re scared of the unknown, you’re not sure if it’s going to work, you’re scared of the pain, of the recovery. But, I’m just very happy that I did it and so pleased.
If I spoke to someone who really wasn’t sure if they wanted to do surgery or not, I would just say go for it. I was extremely nervous and scared before I chose to do it and it took me a long time to come to the “yes, I’m going to do it.” And when I got there, I didn’t look back and I’m so happy and I know anybody that was even thinking about it, if they did it, they would love it.
I just want to say thank you to Dr. Frenzel and his staff and everybody that has been with me through my journey. It’s been a blessing, so amazing, and I’m so grateful that I did it and so grateful for Dr. Frenzel to help me through my transformation.
