“I want to live long enough to play with my grandchildren and see them grow.”
“Sick and tired of being sick and tired”? That’s an old saying, but it fit truck driver and Hartford resident Victor Burgos to a T. Riddled with high blood pressure, sleep apnea and heart problems, Burgos, too, turned to gastric bypass surgery.
“I wanted to be healthy,” says Burgos, now 41.
Since the surgery, Burgos has said goodbye to high blood pressure and sleep apnea and is generally in good health. “I have the energy to be active,” he says.
For motivation to embrace better health by choosing a gastric bypass procedure, Burgos didn’t have to look far. “I want to live long enough to play with my grandchildren and see them grow,” he says.
