I had a very easy time of it. The only thing I would wish is that there was more support and guidance for us out there. With the help of my support group I pretty much fiqure things out on my own. I had no complications. I don't experience the dumping syndrome. I eat pretty much anything and other than having lost 80 pounds I don't feel like I even had surgery. For me I find I am satified with a couple of good 3/4 cup size meals a day and a protien shake. I do experience hunger but nothing compared to pre surgery. If I could say something I feel is important it would be this... This is not a miracle this is a tool to use. It's up to you. This is a diet for life. You can not just go and eat whatever you want and still lose weight. You still have to work at it. I could eat much more than I do and I could eat lots of things that are bad for me because I don't dump. However, I take advantage of the fact I am satified with lighter fare and a little of this and that. It's still very important to make good choices.

Toronto Bariatric Surgeon

He is easy to talk to. He is efficient as well as an excellent surgeon. I had no complications whatsoever. My brother will be seeing him this month. I also personally know someone who had GBS with Dr. Sullivan as her surgeon. She also did not experience any complications. I know others who have had surgery in the same Toronto area with shall we say a higher public profile and these people have had complications. I trust Dr. Sullivan. I would highly recommend Dr. Sullivan. He is a very good Doctor.
