If you are in the Rhode Island or Northeast Region of the US you should look into Dr. J. Giovanni and her team, they are AMAZING! Sherry and her staff, including PA Cobb are just really helpful, friendly, and kind. Not to mention supportive! It's been 3.5 years since my sleeve surgery, I've lost 120 pounds and could not be happier.

Contact Info for her team:

I'm a huge fan of Dr. Ryder and the rest of the Lifespan Baratric team over at the Collyer and Dudley street offices. Been going to her for almost 10 years now, they did my band in 2011, my revision to bypass this past March. Just a great group of folks!

Glad to see so many great doctors in such a small area!

I agree Matt! It's good to have choices, even in a small state like RI!

I have Malcolm Robinson from Brigham and Women’s in Boston but live in RI. Am looking to switch to RI - maybe the University Surgical group. Do you know of any good docs there?

I had a band in 2006, revisions to a sleeve in 2015, and now bad GERD. See Dr. Robinson tomorrow for results from several endoscopy tests and know he’ll recommend a by pass.

        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. 😢
