Gastric Bypass Surgery Forums


The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is restrictive and malabsorptive. You get a smaller stomach pouch, which attaches lower down your small intestine. In these forums, talk about dumping syndrome, nutrient deficiencies, weight loss, the bypass diet and complications. Forums are for pre-WLS patients and those already have the RYGB.

        Welcome! This is a very friendly and supportive site.

        FYI, status updates get a lot fewer responses than threads. So don't feel shunned if you don't get many responses here.

        I live in Kennedale. Where are you having your surgery and which doctor? I'm being unbearably nosy here :P

        I had mine at USMD, Dr. Dyslin.

      2. Zipps

        Haha, you are fine. Thank you for the welcome! I am having my surgery with Dr Matin at Baylor Grapevine. Day is approaching fast, little nervous of course but can't wait.

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        You're not going to believe the difference. It's just so amazing to not be hungry all freakin' day long!

        Best of luck!

      So I'm having a really really really crappy day. Crappy month really.  My husbands been off work for 2 months with an injury and I've been picking up all the slack with everything. And while, I'm happy to step up to the plate and do these things, I'm getting worn out, physically and mentally. And we went to the doctor today that just pushed his recovery time out for another 2 months.
      The reason I tell you all this......
      I bought twizzlers from the vending machine... and I've been nibbling on them.....
      So much for a lifestyle change *cry face*
      Its crazy because I haven't thought about food as comfort in a very long time. But today, I broke.

        @GreenTealael

        There are still 2 Twizzlers left sitting in the wrapper... they aren't gone yet. But today the cleaning people come at work, so they will be soon! I think I'll get some satisfaction to have something left to throw away.

      5. Matt Z

        I was just messing around. I don't mind being "one of the girls" LOL
