Lisa's Message

Having the DS was the single greatest thing that I ever did for myself. I have more energy now than I have in at least 15 years. I look better, I feel better and I don't feel like I have to hide in my house anymore. I am out enjoying life now. I know this has been said a million times, but the only regret I have is that I didn't have this sooner. I missed out on so much while my kids were growing up, and I'm trying to make up for lost time now. I am very close to my personal goal, and I've gained an inch in height! I thank my lucky stars every day that I was able to have this surgery.
