Gastric Bypass Success Story: Darcy Bockman-Wright
Hear how Darcy Bockman-Wright transformed her life and rediscovered health with gastric bypass surgery at Franciscan Center for Weight Management.
At 37 years old, Darcy didn’t feel confident shopping for clothes. She suffered from extreme pain in her aching joints. Weighing in at 345 pounds, she had prediabetes and was experiencing low energy, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and trouble sleeping.
After spending time with unsuccessful weight-loss and workout programs, Darcy decided that bariatric surgery was the necessary next step. In September 2012, Darcy had gastric bypass surgery with Troy Houseworth, MD, and hasn’t looked back.
“The Franciscan Center for Weight Management staff and Dr. Houseworth are my earthbound angels,”
Darcy says. “They gave me my life back and provided so many opportunities for me.”
Losing more than 163 pounds in just nine months is an inspiration to anyone. “I made this decision for myself, to make a change for the rest of my life,” Darcy says.
Now Darcy enjoys riding bicycles with her family, traveling, playing baseball, getting more involved in her children’s sports—and watching her new body transform from month to month.
