Donna Simon's Bariatric Surgery Patient Success Story I have a few stories, I mean because they are not specific, I mean lot of them are just grateful for the ability to have lost the weight, keep it off, be able to fulfill their life, just improve their health, to be able to spend time with their children. I mean I have one patient, she was just so glad, she was able to take a bubble bath. She hasn’t been able to get in a bathtub over ten years and that was one of the most exciting things to her. I mean I have a lot of patients that are training for the half marathon in January, the P. F. Chang half marathon. That’s such an accomplishment for my patients. So I mean it’s not any specific patient but I have a lot of patients that you know, really just took at that heart strength. You know, its little things that a lot of people take for granted. Who would think the tray table in an airplane, to be able to sit down flat or giving back the extender from a seatbelt.
