    "I can't say enough good things about the team at Lahey. I have not had to take a single pill or a single shot of insulin for diabetes since my surgery. In addition, my sleep apnea is gone and my cholesterol has been cut in half"

    "I used to be unable to do anything without experiencing terrible pain. I couldn't even go to the grocery store. I was taking up to seven different medications in one day--now I don't take any. This surgery completely changed my life."

    "I feel absolutely marvelous. The main reason I wanted the surgery was because my skeleton just couldn't handle my weight--I didn't want to end up with a walker. Now, I can go up and down the stairs, I can hike, and I can sit on the floor and play with my grandkids."

    "My whole life I struggled with my weight and the frustration of always gaining back what I lost. With the care and support of Lahey's Center for Surgical Weight Loss team, I was able to fulfill my lifelong dream to be a normal size. Now I can do things with my son and not be exhausted or embarrassed about my size. Lap-band surgery was the best decision I have ever made."
