Mike, vBloc Patient *patient info

I’ve always been a happy guy. I love my family and I love staying active. I knew it was time to do something when I saw I wasn’t as physically able to do all the things we enjoyed as a family.

But I wasn’t happy with the options out there. I had a close friend who went through gastric bypass. The side effects for her were horrible. She told me “this surgery saved my life, but it also ruined my life.” I wasn’t ready to take that sort of risk. I was already physically limited by being overweight. I didn’t want to lose weight and still be limited.

Almost four years in, I have no regrets. vBloc has worked so great for me. I’m able to enjoy food. I know what it is to feel satisfied by it. My health has done a turnaround and I’m out there going dancing with my wife, getting out in my tugboat with the grandkids and learning how to have a healthy life without feeling like I’m depriving myself.

Now that I’ve lost the weight I feel much better and am able to walk without any pains in my legs. I no longer use my CPAP machine at night. My medications have been reduced to the minimum, my blood pressure is perfect and my cholesterol has never been better. I have a lot more stamina without the extra weight and I’m not as tired at the end of the day.
