What was it like before you came to see us?
I was desperate, felt helpless and ugly at a core level. I was tired all the time. It hurt when I went up and down stairs – my knees and ankles couldn’t take the pressure. I suffered from monthly migraines. My ankles would swell up so much you couldn’t tell that there were bones there and getting my shoes on was difficult. I suffered from incontinence whenever I would cough or laugh. It was so frustrating. Being overweight was taking over my life.
