I started this journey April 2011. In June 2011 I got a letter telling me that Dr Glass was leaving St. Cloud. I ended up having a doctor name Jon Krook do my surgery on November 8 2011. I did all the things I needed to before my surgey and lost 25# on my own before surgery. I was on 3 diabetes meds/high blood pressure/ high cholestoral medications. Within 3 weeks I was off all these meds. I had the surgery do to all my problems. Since surgery I have lost 40#. I am so happy now. I can shop in regular stores.
