Patient Transformation Stories: Adam Lost 200 lbs with DAVINCI Bariatric Surgery!
++Update from Adam going strong- I just hit my second goal of losing 200 lbs on 4/2/2020!++ Hello, my name is Adam Weaver and I too have struggled with being overweight my entire life. I was always used to making excuses for my weight or eating habits. I would always find a way to make sure I could get out of exercising-my knees hurt, my back hurts, or I will start tomorrow. About two years ago I started to have severe back and knee problems. I was not able to stand for an hour straight without sitting down due to the back pain. I couldn’t exercise like the way I wanted, due to my knees always hurting, but the real problem was I got up to 423 pounds. In December of 2018, after watching my wife go through disc replacement surgery and not wanting to do that, I decided to find a way to help me lose the weight. I was able to get connected with Dr. Cribbins's office, and in January of 2019, I started my weight loss journey with him. This was possibly the best scenario for me, as the monthly conversations would make me even more aware of my eating habits and my mental health. My surgery was in July of 2019 and it was great. There was a serious adjustment to life with a smaller stomach. As they say, the process is different for everyone. Even as I write this in February of 2020, I am super conscious of what I can eat-both in quantity and spices. I am down to 239 pounds as of 2/17/2020 bringing the total weight loss to 184 pounds! This process has been very eye-opening on many different levels. What I can pass along from my experience is -Do this for YOU, and no one else. Also, don’t compare your experience with anyone else. Thank you, Dr. Joe, for taking such great care of me. ONE OPERATION CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Adam is living the life he wants!
