Weight Lost: 77 Lbs
Procedure: Gastric Bypass
My name is Trina Anderson. I'm from Austin Texas. I had the gastric bypass surgery and I lost 75 pounds.
I have recommended people to come to Dr. Ganta and he has actually seen and actually done the procedure on them. So it makes me feel good to know I am able to lead other people to him knowing that he is an excellent surgeon.
For many years I've been battling with up and down weight. I would gain weight, lose weight, then gain it three times the amount that I lost.

I tried different methods, tried taking different medications and things to lose the weight, but once I stopped taking the medication the weight came back on three or four times more. I had some medical issues that were going on which actually made me decide to do the procedure. Since I've had the procedure done. My medical issues have been corrected.
Actually, the day of my operation I was like, I don't want to do this. I'm not losing weight now and I don't think it's going to help afterwards. Then Dr. Ganta told me once you have this procedure done you will see some change. Things will be different. His staff was very encouraging. You know you will see a difference don't be discouraged. Everything will be so good. I took that and I said, you know what. I'm going to go ahead and do it. They were so encouraging and they are wonderful people. So in the end it was a good decision.
I have noticed that things like exercise are easier for me. It was really hard from the beginning when I could only walk on a treadmill for 30 minutes. Now I can walk on a treadmill for an hour and 30 minutes. So it has helped with those things, climbing stairs, being more active, being able to get out and do more. It's helped with that where I'm not as tired as I was before. So it has been a big change.
I recommend people to Dr. Ganta for this procedure because he is very knowledgeable of every procedure that he does. He's very soft spoken. He is very instructional. He lets you know exactly what you can look forward to. And as a matter of fact I have recommended people to come to Dr. Ganta and he has actually seen and actually done the procedure on them. So it makes me feel good to know I am able to lead other people to him knowing that he is an excellent surgeon.
