I started my journey at 5’9” 370 lbs. 4xl shirt and size 28 jeans with a BMI of 54.6. I suffered from depression, anxiety, GERD, degenerative disk disease (multiple surgeries), high blood pressure, migraines, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and infertility. Dr. Cunningham was such a wonderful surgeon. He has a calm and direct manner that eased my nerves. I saw several surgeons before him and I knew he was the surgeon for me. He has an awesome bedside manner and approach to bariatrics. I could not have chose a better surgeon for me. I had vertical sleeve gastrectomy on 12/2/2015. My surgery was flawless and I have had zero complications. To date, I weigh 166 lbs., BMI is 25.1, medium shirt, size 8 jeans. I have lost a total of 206 lbs. and this was the best decision I’ve ever made! I am happy to say that I am off of all of my medicines with the exception of anxiety, fibromyalgia, and a weekly dose of vitamin D. Thank you so much Dr. Cunningham!
