John Oldham - Baptist Bariatric - Louisville



Recommended Posts

I can't say enough good things about my surgical experience with Baptist Bariatrics in Louisville. The process was simple, supportive, and my surgeon, John Oldham, is awesome. My recovery was extremely well managed and I felt so good that I even refused IV pain meds while in the hospital. He is extremely proactive in making sure that his patients are exposed to as little risk as possible. My labs have been great, and I haven't thrown up once. At almost two months post-op, I am already able to fulfill all my nutritional needs without Protein supplements. My weight loss has been slow, but I think that's probably good. My energy levels are comparable to pre-op.

Highly recommend!

Thanks for posting about your experience with Dr. Oldham. I'm just starting the process - attended the seminar last night. I'm excited, anxious and all of the other emotions! Turned in my paperwork and waiting for my phone call! :)

I was at that seminar! Did you get called for the all day intake appointment yet? I’m so happy to read all this positive stuff about Dr. Oldham. He seemed like he really cared.

Are there any support groups there? I had mine at Baptist Lexington and even though I’ve been really pleased, there are little to no support groups available. I’m closer to Lex but would consider driving to Louisville for one.

Yes, from what I remember from the info seminar there is a support group....from my notes it's the 3rd Thursday of every month.

        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. 😢
