When you dial 911 you expect a firefighter to come running in to save the day. What you are not looking for is an overweight fireman that needs to take a moment to catch his breath before he helps you. I had become that firefighter. I was very out of shape and I was about as unhealthy as you could be. I tried dieting and working out but it was never enough.
Following an injury on the job I made the choice to contact Dr. Carlton at the Nicholson Clinic. That one phone call was the best I ever made. My life has changed. 12 weeks post-surgery I feel better than I have in 20 years. Before my surgery I could barely make it to walk a mile. I am now jogging 4-5 miles a day and since my surgery I am up to 104 miles. I have a total weight loss of about 50 pounds and still counting. I'm sorry to break it to my Chief but I will need new uniforms and gear.
If you are apprehensive about the surgery I challenge you to make the appointment with either doctor at the Nicholson Clinic. I promise all your fears will be gone and all your questions will be answered. Dr. Carlton was the best I could have asked for. He took the time to answer every question and go over every detail. I never felt like he was rushing me to get to the next patient. To say I have had a positive experience would be such an understatement. As a father they have given me back time with my children and energy to enjoy the activities that come with teenagers. As a husband I am on the path to a healthy new me for my wife. As a firefighter I now have the energy and the stamina to respond like I did in my 20’s. I no longer fear that I will not be able to do my job due to my weight.
I challenge every firefighter out there who is quietly struggling to keep up. You do not have to continue to struggle. Give Dr. Carlton a call and I promise it will change your life. The life you save may be your own.
My family and I cannot say thank you enough to the Nicholson Clinic. You guys are the real heroes in this story.
