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.
My Doctor: Paul Sullivan, MD
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.
