My lapband over Bypass Surgery after 10+ years

Terry Berryhill

Memphis, TN

Good reviews and Dr Otiz spoke to me over the phone and assured me that it was going to be safe and comfortable.

In 2001, 40 years old, I had a gastric Bypass at the weight of 292, I was miserable and had co-morbidities that were impacting my life. Everything went well for about 2 years, I lost over 100 lbs then I had complications with the bypass (stapleline disruption) I spent the next three years fighting the insurance company to have the surgeon fix it. And gained about 60+ lbs back due to no restriction and other issues.
My appeals were denied and I had to start thinking of other options, no US surgeons would touch me without insurance. So I did a lot of investigation and found Dr Ortiz at OCC, I told him of my predicament and he agreed to do the surgery. This was a tough surgery and took several hours but Dr. Ortiz did a great job and followed up with me several times. I came back to get fills for several years.
That was in 2006, I am so grateful. My weight while always something that I have to be cognizant of has stayed down. I am now 59 years old and in great shape.
