Is your weight loss surgeon morbidly obese?



Recommended Posts

My Doctor Needleman, no way. He's a shooter of clay pigeons and targets, loves the outdoors. But he plays tennis, both for enjoyment and because he is doggone good at Tim Although I can't confirm it, I suspect he has the beautifully toned legs you find in tennis and soccer males. Dr Noria runs and I suspect has competed in as many marathons as I have baking contests. So both of them not only Talk the Talk about better health & living a healthier diet, they Walk the Walk as well. And neither has reached 50 unless Dr Needlnan has had a birthday!😷&😷God Watch over and bless them, they have and are making a profound change in MY LIFE!

At the Bariatric practice I go to everyone seems to be of average weight. There are a couple office staff that are on the chunky side but nobody obese that I’ve seen. The 3 surgeons are fit and fabulous. That said, I have seen cardiologists that should lose some lbs and hairdressers with frizzy fried hair.

Actually my GP is quite overweight and I felt like because of it, he never took my concerns about my own weight very seriously. He would just say things like “well, if I had the magic wand for that...” (and pat his tummy) Finally I made an appt with the NP and talked/cried to her about my weight concerns. She was actually the one who suggested bariatric surgery. I love her for it : )

My surgeon + staff are thin, but that is unsurprising as I live in a city where there are few overweight people. (I think they hide them or something.) I have to add that I know some cardiac surgeons who are smokers, and that really blows my mind.

That said, I would be uncomfortable consulting someone in the field of obesity and obesity research who is obese. I recall a time when I was in my twenties and I wanted to consult a therapist to see if I could find out WHY I had this weight problem. So I go to this woman who was highly recommended, but when I had my first appointment and saw she was 300 pounds, I knew I would not take anything she said seriously. Physician, help thyself!

Agreed! When I was a little Sin I saw my Grandmother's pastor doing some pretty heavy kissing on one of the nurses. He was married of course. I'll never forget that. He was a fire and brimstone type of dude too. Always had something bad to say about women and how they dress, and their proper place in the world. What a great moral compass he was!

Obviously he subscribed to the "Do As I Say, Not as I Do" school of theology! Somebody ought to pull their accreditation, those diplomas are as bad as Trump University and I have heard a lot of people complaining of being defrauded there!

My surgeon is VERY thin, however, her husband and partner is a bariatric patient. The NP that does my fills is also banded, and I think one of the front desk girls.

I'm a patient of her husband's. I love the fact that he has a band. He understands me when I discuss issues with him.

Hahaha... my surgeon is chubby. Not bariatric surgery size chubby. But he is definitely a round-faced dude (pic of him on my profile). Several of his staff have had WLS. Most are average-sized... but I'm not sure which have had the surgery and which haven't.

My surgeon isn't fat but he doesn't make my panties wet either. (Sorry Doc if you see this please don't leave a piece of gauze inside of me. I still think your french accent is f**king hot!)

My surgeon just recently had bypass. He’s not a huge guy but he definitely has some weight on him before.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
