Danny Rager: Since weight-loss surgery, 257 pounds are gone. So is my diabetes.

Danny Rager had obesity-related joint pain, high blood pressure and sleep apnea, but it was diabetes that caused his aha moment. "I was about to start insulin shots, which shocked me into action." Danny's physician referred him to a bariatric surgeon. "My doctor and the surgeon worked closely with each other and with me through every step." After completing pre-surgical education and counseling, Danny had a gastric bypass. "I was out of the hospital in three days and back to work in two weeks." Six weeks later, he took up bicycling and worked his way to 100 mile rides. "I went from watching life go by to living it."
