‘I wish I would have done it sooner’
Tuesday, October 4, 2016
“I wish I would have done it sooner.”
“A lot of people have waited too way long to have surgery,” says McKenna, a surgeon with Aurora BayCare Bariatric Surgery.
“And when you wait to the point where you’re 200, 300 pounds overweight, it’s going to be much more difficult to actually lose all the weight that you need to get back to a healthier lifestyle.”
Those who’ve had bariatric surgery have seen such an improvement in their quality of life, McKenna says, “that it’s frightening to think what path they would have gone on had they not had this intervention.”
