I know both quite intimately! He performed my surgery.

Were you satisfied with the service? I didn’t know much about him. I had to go with Loyola because of my insurance. Either that or UIC. My doctor at the time recommended Loyola

Had RNY on 6-18-18 with Dr. Rantis at the Kane center.

Felt very comfortable with the pre surgery process with all of them. My PCP is with a different medical group and has said that after being involved with my journey he is very impressed with the Kane center and plans on referring patients to them

I’m in the process of approval for RNY with Dr Wallace at the Kane Center. Just set up all of my appointments working toward a surgery date.

My sister had RNY thru the same group back in 2004 with excellent results!

Hi Nycholle! I’m fighting off my last 30lbs with a Fatloss Camp in Chicago. It’s amazing! The workouts are fierce and the diet is clean, and there’s a ton of support and accountability. And - they provide a plan for maintenance, which is huge for me. Look up “Travis Garza Chicago” on Google- I'd share the link but not sure it’s allowed.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
