Our Weight is Over

A couple's journey through weight-loss surgery and beyond

EKG for Greg

Leave a comment

My husband Greg has a history of high blood pressure and is on four different medications for it. It’s one of his main reasons for wanting weight-loss surgery. As a result, he needs to have his heart checked before he can have the surgery to make sure he’s healthy enough to get through it.

His blood pressure is still a bit high even with all his medications. It runs in his family, and he’ll likely still have high blood pressure after weight loss, though not as badly. His doctor was concerned that having such high blood pressure for so long may have thickened his heart walls.

Thankfully, his results showed he was clear of heart problems and he is still a good candidate for weight-loss surgery!
