Hi there,

I'm thinking of booking my gastric bypass with Dr. Simon Chow, who is basically a protege of Dr. Nicholas Christou in Montreal, Quebec Canada. Their offices are at the Physimed centre, but they operate in a private hospital. So far they seem very transparent and helpful, I've already had a consultation with Dr. Chow and he seems encouraging and supportive. I guess I was just looking to see if anyone else had experience with Dr. Chow or even Dr. Christou in terms of how their surgery went, and what they experienced after in terms of support.

Thanks!

Really? No one? Wow, that's somewhat disconcerting. Maybe I should have gone to Mexico ROFL! Thanks anyway!

Thanks for your reply Sarah! Can you tell me, which hotel did you stay at after the surgery? We're trying to find one close to the hospital or the airport, with a reasonable rate and good comfortable beds. A bonus would be walk in shower instead of tub shower, but it's not as important as comfort. What did you do for your surgery?

I'm so glad I found you guys! I've also picked Dr. Christou but haven't had a consultation yet because I'm still trying to bring my blood sugar levels down. Darmonyx did you have your surgery yet? Where are you from?

      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. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
