“My biggest frustration today is that I didn’t do this surgery sooner. As a builder, I can now walk through the framing studs in my buildings. My diabetes? GONE! Heel Spurs? GONE! High Blood Pressure? GONE! I can now walk into a regular clothing store and buy clothes. People who know me don’t recognize me. To be honest with you, I’m sick of talking about it!”

Thomas' success story

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.
