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?

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
