I heard about Lonestar Bariatrics at a social event from a friend who just had surgery by Dr . Carlton. At the time I felt terrible, unenergetic and depressed. I was experiencing back pain and trouble walking. I decided to call and make appointment with Dr. Carlton. The team was very inviting, answered all my questions and always available. I was a little nervous about having surgery, concerned about cardiac issues with my high blood pressure. Surgery went well and the recovery was pretty simple. After 3 months I was down 130lbs. I feel so much better and have a positive outlook. I am now able to walk easier, exercise and I get better sleep. My blood pressure is improved and I no longer have to wear CPAP when sleeping. If you are thinking about having surgery, be sure to follow all pre and post op instructions. Being successful is achievable just takes a lot of mental strength.
