Cara RicheyCara Richey of New Albany has lost 130 pounds since having weight loss surgery at North Mississippi Medical Center in December 2018. When she weighed 285 pounds, Cara struggled with joint pain, polycystic ovary syndrome and metabolic syndrome—all of which have resolved since losing weight. “Now I can do anything I want,” she says. “I can run around with my niece and nephew.” Cara encourages anyone considering weight loss surgery to talk to the Bariatric Clinic staff about getting started. “It was the best decision I have ever made for myself,” she says. “I would do it again tomorrow.”
