Before I had bariatric surgery my heaviest I was 338 pounds. We joke now because our first interview
actually didn’t go that well she didn’t like me very much because I told her
she had to quit smoking or I wouldn’t operate on her and she had to get in the gym and give up some of her favorite foods. I love Dr. Hilton. She is not just my doctor. She is a friend. Her journey has just been absolutely miraculous. She has really put in the work It’s important to realize that you’re not alone. You also have the support of the staff behind you Not only are you getting cared for sometimes instead of just by one doctor, but a whole team of doctors a whole team of residents a whole team of student doctors and then at the end of the day it’s that
same group of people that are going into the lab putting cells under a microscope or sitting around a table and coming up with what’s the next way we’re gonna treat these patients and make their care better. I feel amazing for who I am now. I feel accomplished like I’ve accomplished something because I have.
