The first time I seen Dr. Billy was 2010, I decided to make a life change. He took good care of me and I lost 85 lbs. I felt great, and 2 years after never went back. I thought I was fine, even dealing what what I thought were side effects or just blamed it on the surgery! Last Wednesday I ended up in the ER and had an emergency laparoscopic by another surgeon, but Dr. Billy went in to make sure I was okay and it wasn’t anything serious! I made a follow up appointment with him, and I felt we started back where we left off! I’m very thankful it wasn’t anything worse, but one thing I learned is to keep going back to follow up with him at least once a year! Listen to your body!
