N Hines: Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy

Life is so much better for me after VSG surgery. I am happier and healthier and I’m no longer in chronic pain. I can exercise consistently. I can fit in almost any chair comfortably. I can shop in the ladies section versus the plus section. I can fit in an airplane seat comfortably. I can run, jump and even do jumping jacks (I couldn’t prior to surgery).
