Follow-up After Surgery
“Dr. Chow was the best!!! I was travelling from out of province for weight loss surgery and Dr. Chow was always available via telephone to answer any questions I might have before my surgery. I travelled to Quebec to have my surgery on June 14th. Before and after the surgery Dr. Chow was amazing, answered all my questions, put my mind at ease and reassured me that things would be fine. After the surgery Dr. Chow was always there for any questions I may have and the follow up was amazing!!! I would recommend Dr. Chow for bariatric surgery to anyone thinking of it !!!! He has changed my life!!!”
“Dr. Chow performed my RNY bariatric surgery on July 23, 2019. As a patient travelling for surgery from afar, our pre-surgery conversations put me at ease and made me feel confident in Dr. Chow and his team. I had lots of questions and worries and Dr. Chow and Angela Rieux (the coordinator) was attentive to each of them. I appreciated his bedside manner and attention to detail while I was an inpatient. I have so valued all of my postoperative care with both Dr. Chow and the dietician on his team Monica. I am so pleased with my surgery, the results and am thankful to Dr. Chow!”
“I’m having an amazing experience with Dr. Chow’s team. Before surgery they reassure you and make you feel super comfortable. After surgery, they’re always available, they’re very professional and kind. It’s been 3 months since my surgery, I lost 65lbs already and I’m feeling great. I recommend and give two thumbs up to Dr. Chow and his team, they’re the best!”
“I am very happy with my choice to have gastric bypass surgery and very happy that I had Dr. Chow do it. I have had no complications or issues since the surgery and this is mostly due to the surgery done right the first time. I didn’t have to ask a lot of questions or call him about issues because there were none. The whole team at WLS and the staff at the hospital all were very professional and compassionate. I wholeheartedly would recommend him to anyone considering this type of operation.”
“I am writing to give an update on myself, in fact I’m super well. This morning on the scale I weighed 132 lbs. When I came for my first consultation I was 232 lbs which means I lost 100 lbs*. While I still have 7 lbs until I reach my ideal weight (125 lbs), that being said, I am fine the way I am and it doesn’t bother me if I don’t reach 125 lbs. Thanks to the surgery (bypass), but also the gym that I go to daily, we can say it’s been a total success. I don’t even need reconstructive plastic surgery; the result is spectacular. Again thank you and extend my greetings to the team.”
“To the WLS team- I am so overjoyed that I have my life back. I am incredibly lucky. I am unable to fully express my gratitude. I used to have a 56 inch waist line. I am now down to a 38 inch waist. I no longer take insulin. I feel like I am living a dream. As soon as I can, I want to come back and visit to say Hi!”
“I underwent the surgery over 6 months ago, and it has completely changed my life. The weight has been melting off , with a little help from some exercise and healthy eating. I feel so much better going out and spending time with my family and friends. I love being able to run around with my kids without feeling tired all the time. I sleep “so much better and wake up feeling ready to start my new day. I highly recommend the Weight Loss Surgery Team. I completely trust them, and found comfort in this experience.”
“Dr. Chow performed my surgery on July 5th 2016. The procedure was successful and I managed to lose 80% of my excess weight in the first four months*. Dr. Chow was very helpful and comforting. He is the type of person that would go the extra mile to make sure that you are well. He answered all my questions and took good care of me from pre op until post op. If you are struggling with your weight, I definitely recommend this surgery. I never thought it was possible for me to be ‘normal’. I am getting closer to my dream weight every day thanks to the excellent efforts of Dr. Chow.”
“My beautiful personal journey continues this morning. On 17 November 2015 was my bariatric surgery, loss of 132 lbs in 1 year*, and today, 23 November 2016 is already in the reconstruction project. I’m so proud of my journey and my efforts, the rest of my body is still well despite this massive weight loss. I’m really grateful for all the beautiful things that are offered to me. It is difficult to see me like this in this school photo from October 2015 and 2016; phew, what a transformation …”
