Bariatric surgery success story – Tracy Schaufenbuel

Before her gastric bypass surgery, Tracy lived in the shadows. She didn't want people to notice her and felt very secluded from everyone around her. She suffered from chronic migraines, joint pain, and GERD. 

Tracy realized she needed to make a change when she wasn't able to do the things she needed and wanted to do. So the next day she called the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics to make an appointment.

Now she says shes living a whole new life and doing things she had never done before she lost the weight. She is now able to actually run and play with her grandchildren and even go out dancing with friends without worry.
