My name is Leonor, and I had the gastric sleeve done by Dr. Frenzel in September. Before the surgery I weighed 279 pounds. I didn’t go to the gym because I felt like oh my goodness, I am going to be so embarrassed, everyone is going to be so slim or smaller than me and I just didn’t want to go in there and be seen with all of these people. I was always tired, and just came home and sat in front of the tv. I just wanted to stay home. I didn’t have much of a social life.
It’s just been a great experience for me, it is something I know I should have done a long time ago. I can’t stop telling my family and friends that this is something that I should have done a long time ago. When I first met Dr. Frenzel, I knew he was a warm person, and I felt comfortable with him. He walked me from A-Z. That’s one of the first thing I looked for on the internet. I was looking for a doctor that could take me from A to Z. From the produce of gastric surgery to afterwards and follow-up visits and into the cosmetic part to which I am hoping he will be able to do for me as well. That’s one of the main things I was looking for when I was looking for a doctor. He’s been with me from the very beginning and all the way to the end.
Life after surgery has been a total change. I love the compliments, I love what my co-workers have to say to me. My family is like wow, I can’t believe the photos I show them before. They look at those and can’t believe that it is me. My husband says that my wife left me, at least 90 pounds of her has left me. You know, it’s just wonderful. I cannot tell you how happy I am. I should have went to him a long time ago.
I highly recommend Dr. Clayton Frenzel if you are interested in doing this surgery because he is so great. I am at work, my friends and coworkers all ask who did the surgery. I will be listening to the radio and hear the commercial and say oh that’s my doctor! That’s who did my surgery! And I will say to everyone that he is really good! I honestly do recommend him.
Dr. Frenzel I just want to thank you. My family thanks you. My friends thank you. And you just don’t know how you have made me feel, but we are not finished yet because we have to finish my transformation. That’s for sure!
