“How has the surgery changed my life? The real question is: What in my life didn’t the surgery change? It is apparent to all my family, friends and coworkers that I am much healthier—mentally, physically and spiritually. Since having my surgery, I have participated in local marathons, obtained my career goal of starting and running my own business and served with my church’s mission programs in other countries.”.
