Mike

Gastric Bypass

Mike says he developed his weight issues later in life. He says over the last 15 years he found everyday tasks becoming more difficult. These included outdoor activities with his children and keeping up with his co-workers. A singer for many years, Mike was also having trouble with vocal fatigue due to his weight gain. Other health problems began to develop.

Following his Gastric Bypass procedure at AtlantiCare, Mike lost 50 pounds from his peak weight of 270. He continues to work towards his goal of shedding a total of 80 pounds.
