One patient’s story: Bariatric surgery helped her lose weight and more

Ashley Lorenzen was skinny growing up. She was an active kid in high school, but she started to see changes in college when she was less active.

Soon she was not able to do certain things like she could before. She had a hard time fitting into amusement park rides and was winded when walking. Ashley also noticed that she was not ovulating correctly, so she and her husband were not able to get pregnant.

She was trying everything to lose weight, but nothing worked. Eventually at 360 pounds, she attended a bariatric surgery informational session at Marshfield Clinic Health System and decided to make a drastic change. She had the roux-en-y gastric bypass procedure on February 23, 2015 and has made incredible progress since.

Watch this video to see Ashley’s amazing journey with losing weight, bariatric surgery and improving her overall health.
