With Gastric Bypass Surgery

Hello, My name is Joseph. On May 13, 2020 I had the Roux-en-Y Gastric bypass surgery with Dr. James Parrish. This has been hands down the best decision I have ever made! Since I was a child, I struggled with weight. I tried multiple diets only to regain my weight back plus some. At 29 years old, I suffered from GERD, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and was borderline diabetic. I knew it was time to make a change, not only for myself, but also for my two daughters. In August of 2019, I started researching and found Dr. Parrish. After reading all of the amazing comments and reviews, I decided to attend the free seminar at Cabrini. Dr. Parrish was very thorough and explained everything involved with bariatric surgery. Afterwords, I scheduled my consultation with Dr. Parrish. At my consultation we discussed which surgery would be best for me and the results I wanted. After meeting requirements, I scheduled my surgery. The care I received from the staff at Cabrini, as well as Dr. Parrish, was amazing! They did everything to make sure I was taken care of. Since surgery, I am no longer using my C-PAP machine, my GERD is gone, and I no longer need to take blood pressure medication. My energy level has increased, I am more confident, and I feel amazing! If you are considering bariatric surgery, give the team at Mid-Lousiana Surgical a call!
