I Had the Roux N Y surgery done yesterday at The Ottawa Hospital and now home resting! Everything went very well and Dr. Kosalavari and the med team, nursing team and staff were awesome. I was in very good hands and the care they all gave was amazing.

The day is here to meet the surgeon. The process started in February 2017 and I will be meeting Dr. Amy Neville tomorrow. Quite the journey so far! Any Ottawa people get together as a support group still? Any advice on questions for the surgeon? Thanks
