I have my RNY revision from Lapband scheduled with Dr Patel for June 26th. However, I am not happy with his office staff whatsoever. They are never the same people, the wait time for appts are horrendous and the insurance and scheduling folks are very unprofessional. So, I have an appt tomorrow with Dr. John Pilcher to see if I like his office better and I may switch doctors. I hope your experience is better than mine at Dr Patel.

Today, I had a appt with Dr Pilcher and it was AMAZING!!! What a difference the staff and professionalism makes. I would highly, highly, highly recommend his office. I am on cloud 9-today.

Oh gosh. I am going for my 1st appointment at Bariatric Solutions this week. I chose them because their reviews were all 5's. Now I am a little concerned. Maybe I should cancel for another place?

You should meet with them. I'm having Dr. Stowers do my surgery. The staff has been great, very informative, and always available. There's so many Dr out there and I know it's hard to choose. For me I wanted a Dr that primarily performs weight loss surgery. Not sure if that matters but it was one of the criteria I used to help my decision. I'm linked to realself.com where I met someone who used Dr Stower also, and she had a great recovery and results. I've been on a 6mos diet with their nutrionist for insurance approval. Scheduled for April 25th. Good luck on your decision.

I'm from DFW. Dr McCarty did a mini sleeve on Feb 10. I'm down 51lbs. His staff is awesome, and I highly recommend you check him out. His procedure is out patient, and no restrictions afterwards.

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢
