Hi! I’m Joe. I’m a retired firefighter from
the Clark County Fire Department. I’ve struggled with my weight for the last 30 years. I retired
13 years ago and last year I decided I needed to do something, so I’d feel better. My blood
pressure was bad; I was on medication. I didn’t have any energy, so I made the decision to
have the surgery at Blossom. It’s been wonderful! I now weigh 218 lbs, which I weighed in 1970.
I don’t take any medications. I have tons of energy. The staff here and the doctor are
fantastic. I recommend this surgery for anybody, because it has absolutely changed my life.
My grandson has had the surgery and my daughter has had the surgery and they’re all doing
great and I’m proud of both of them. If you are thinking about it, really consider it,
because it will change your life. It’s wonderful.
