William Graber M.D.
Dr. Graber is a very nice man. When I first met him I saw how he cared for his patients when in his building / offices he had purchased expensive chairs to accomodate his patients plus alot of other things as well to aid his patients ease into a new way of life.rnrnI found him to be a compassionate, informative Doctor who emphasized before, during after surgery and stressed support groups as a must! He outlayed in full detail the risks involved in this surgery!rnrnI would rate him as of now 1 being the lowest score and 10 the highest score a 10!!!rnrnBoth surgical competence and bedside manner are very important but because of obvious reasons surgical competence takes president over bedside. Which he has both of these qualities.rnrn

Hi; Well what can I tell you? I am 54 years old and I might weigh 264 I might not! At the doctors in October I weighed 271. I retired from work due to disabilities. Apnea is one. I am very sensitive to light and don't go out side much. I used to wear 2 sunglasses to go out and it still hurt, wanted to wear three pair but wouldn't fit over the first two. I have had both eyes operated on for cataracts at the ripe old age of 39. Then I had my right eye re-operated on 3 more times to stop the pain that they don't know what is causing it. I have a bad back, neck, shoulders etc. Plaque Pysoris. I had a heart attack in August 2006, then in May 2007 I caught a cold that almost killed me. I was then told I have COPD. I am a procrastinator hence the cold thing. I stayed at home for 9 days and then finally said I guess I better go to the hospital as I couldn't breath. So now you know about my health problems.
I was always chubby as a child but not this big. I tried numerous of diets and as we all learned the hard way there is no such thing as a diet that works for long. I say that from my own personal experience so don't go off on me. The best diet I was ever on was starvation.........seemed to work until I passed out and went into convulsions.
I read up on gastric bypass along time ago but at that time knew I couldn't afford it. Now with all my health issues OHIP is paying for it. My doctor (the best) filled out my application and sent it in 31 July and had my consult with Dr. Graber first week of October. My surgery is now booked for 7 December and I welcome it. I am scared that I may die but that goes for any surgery we ever had or will have in the future.
Don't mind my rantings, if I had filled this out a week ago it would of been off the wall. I went and looked at the obituary's of all the people who didn't make it and my heart went out to them and their families. Then I started the morbidity doomsday crap which drove my daughter insane. Now after getting sloshed and making a total dippy do dah of myself I am back to normal. No I didn't go out, I stayed confined to the safety of my home where my daughter could choke me to death at any give time if I didn't shut my mouth about dieing.
Well that is it if you have any suggestions what to put in this or what not to don't hessitate .....
