Barker Bariatric Center of Lubbock Now Open!
My 1st anniversary has come and I've lost an amazing 198 lbs. Dr Barker and his staff did a wonderful job taking care of me pre/post op. The health benefits of this procedure were well worth it, I'm no longer diabetic, or have blood pressure issues. Another plus is seeing people who haven't seen me in a while and they don't recognize me, the looks they give me when they realize it's me is GREAT!! Thanks again Dr Barker for giving me, my life back!!
6 months after bypass....down 101 lbs and counting. Should have done this 10 years ago.
I have my life back again.
I had gastric bypass in May of 2012, starting at 344 lbs. I am 11 months out now and have lost 114 lbs! I cannot believe how different I feel. It feels so good to go to the gym and not be embarrassed for people to watch me on the treadmill... and feels even better to be able to give someone advise in the weight room. Every aspect of my life has changed from the way sleep, to how I feel when I wake up in the morning, to where I shop for cloths. I still have a way to go to reach a healthy weight, but I am most definitely on my way. I am so grateful to Dr. Barker and his excellent team for this life that I never envisioned possible for myself.
Dr. Barker and his staff go above and beyond their duties to make the pre-op and post-op expectations clear and easy to follow. March 2010 bypass was a major life event for me, I had always struggled with my weight and now I don't have to!!! In one year, I lost 135 lbs, this has changed my life. No more high blood pressure, snoring, and decreased fibromyalgia flare-ups. Thank You to the staff and Dr. Barker for making my life more fullfilling and I know they will always be there to help.
I had my Duodenal Switch surgery Feb 15, 2012 so I'm at my 6 month mark and just celebrated 100 pounds gone and 48 inches gone!! This surgery was so easy, I was only off work 3 days and the entire team at Dr. Barker's office has been so supportive. I'm off all my blood pressure medicine. I only wished I had the surgery many years ago. THANK you Dr. Barker & Team.
