My Story

Before surgery, I had anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, pre-diabetes, PCOS, and stage 3 congestive heart failure. My body was literally giving out. I didn’t like leaving my house because I felt like everyone was staring at me.I am a completely different person now, physically and mentally! I have lots of energy, very social and outgoing, and playing sports again. My health has dramatically improved. My heart was able to relax and has repaired itself. I cannot thank Dr. Carlton and his team enough for giving me my life back and for giving my children their mom back.Now after surgery, I can walk into any store and buy clothes. I can run and be active. I can fit into any seat or booth (I only have to buy one seat on the airplane). I can ride water slides and rollercoasters. I don’t have to check for weight limits on chairs or activities.Dr. Carlton saved my life. He is a brilliant surgeon. I had minimal pain and scarring. His office staff is very responsive. They all want you to succeed.I am eternally grateful to Dr. Carlton. He gave me my life back!
