I had RNY Gastric Bypass surgery in Hamilton, Ontario on May 8th, 2009. I went into the operation at 351lbs. At 2 years post-op I was 178lbs and to which I am still at almost 3 years post-op. I submitted this video as an informative video for others who are, or know someone who is considering this procedure. Prior to my operation I spent endless hours researching online and asking anyone and everyone who’s had the operation numerous questions trying to put my mind at ease. This was by far the best decision I have ever made in my life. Should you be considering this procedure and have questions, please feel free to email me or message me on FaceBook. I will leave my info at the bottom. Make sure you do your research and most importantly, make sure you have the support of your family and friends. Educate them on the procedure. Make them understand that you are doing this to better yourself, to increase your chances of still being alive to watch your children get married, to be around for your grandchildren. My surgeon was Dr. M. Anvari out of St.Joes Hospital in Hamilton Ontario Canada. He is an amazing surgeon. He saved my life.
The road to better health is a long journey and a special thank you to a special friend who made that road a little less bumpy.

Going through the appointment process and find out next month if they will do the surgery for me. Im 25, 5'2.5"/300lbs and going to get this done to take control of my life. I have missed out on so much in my life so far. It is great to see another male make a video, seems a lot more women get this done.

I wish can get this surgery done. How do I get my insurance to pay for it. Right now I hate going clothes shopping.

Jonathan Aubin says:

THAT…….IS……..AWESOME!! I wish I could do that. No insurance = no way. I work on a farm training horses and life would be so much easier and more comfortable 85 pounds lighter.

Wow! So good to see a male video for a change. Your before pic could be me right now.
It's like I'm looking at a time lapse of the journey I'm about to take on May 15!

I'm amped for this!!

Bradley Clopton says:

Thanks for this video, I am in the beginning stages of having the surgery. I meet with the psychologist next week and then start the process of pre surgical exercise and weight loss. It is encouraging to see the results of all that effort and the surgery. Thanks again!

GBT says:

Hello Santino. This video is such an inspiration. I look very much like your "before" pictures. I'm going next month for the pre-surgery education/counselling, to be followed by the actual surgery sometime later this year. I've been a little hesitant, but your video has absolutely convinced me that this is the right thing to do. When I saw you looking so healthy, dancing with your daughters, I had tears in my eyes. I'm 57. My grandchildren are just babies and the thought that I might regain enough health to watch them grow, and even be able to be active with them like I was with my own kids, is almost too good to be true. Bless you, brother. Today, thanks to you, I'm optimistic that the future can be great. GT

The US has a serious obesity issue.
Alot is due to fast food chains that sell highly addictive foods.
Intermiddent fasting can help people to stay slim as well as being on some kind of diet.
We must eat real, natural foods.
