My Story

I had tried diets and pills, and working out, I tried everything!!! Thankfully, a friend told me about Dr. Carlton, so I reached out. Before surgery, I felt tired and worn down all the time. My back hurt and my knees hurt! My blood pressure was extremely bad and my cholesterol was high.

My pre-op experience with Dr. Carlton and his staff was absolutely nothing short of amazing. Everyone was awesome and the communication was great. Dr. C treated me with hands down the best bedside manner and made me feel like I was taken care of.

My pre-op concerns were the complications and “what if’s”. On surgery day, I was anxious but relieved to finally get to the big day. I had to wait 6 months due to insurance.

During post-op, I had pain that lasted a short period. I walked a lot to help, and the staff was very helpful. Dr. C was very informative about recovering and what was to come.

Now, I can run faster than my 8-year-old son, I work harder, and don’t get fatigued like I used to. I do not snore anymore. I feel so much better. I no longer have high blood pressure or high cholesterol and I don’t have to use a sleep apnea machine anymore. I love myself and feel like it’s been a mental war the last year, but ultimately it has made me a stronger person and I’ve learned a lot about myself and seen who I am deep down.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Carlton and his staff. Honestly, they’re the best. The only thing I would say negative is I wish I would have found LoneStar Bariatrics sooner. This has SAVED MY LIFE. It has given me the opportunity to live a healthy life and see my kids and grandchildren grow up and not have to worry about dying of obesity, which runs in my family.
