BMI Surgery at Silver Cross rebuilds confidence of Lockport woman after bariatric surgery
New Lenox, IL (August 31, 2012) — Marcia Dick, of Lockport, had learned to get used to her overweight body for over 60 years, but that didn’t mean she could forget about it. Fad diets and fitness plans often left her depressed and feeling weak, causing her to give up quickly. The weight continued to pile on and her depression worsened. “I was so ashamed to be seen in public, I just retreated inside,” says Dick. As her motivation weaned, she was eventually diagnosed with sleep apnea, high blood pressure and diabetes causing her to take 4 insulin shots and 8 pills a day.
