Hi, I am Sophia. I am a patient of Dr. Dahiya’s. He performed the gastric bypass surgery, and I have lost 78 pounds. I just got tired of all the dieting, the ups and downs, just everything. I just, I knew it was time. I knew it was time and got tired of not being able to do things with my children, and I just was ready for it. When I couldn’t play with my kids, I mean, you know, I have four kids. I want to go out there, play ball with them, just hang out with them, and I just couldn’t. It’s awful. It’s awful, you know. Maybe there was times with my kids, you know, kind of like “Oh Mom, get away,” but I mean, now it’s more they want to hang out. They enjoy doing things with me. We go to the beach. We do all kinds of things. You know, it’s just, it’s great now.
