Weight loss surgery patient has new lease on life
A little more than a year ago Phil Garrett, of Lehi, weighed nearly 400 pounds -- at 32 the father of three tipped the scale at 390 pounds. He says he had high blood pressure and sleep apnea and knew that something needed to change. Last March Garrett underwent gastric bypass surgery to help get his weight under control.
