  2. If the main reason for seeking WLS is treatment of your T2 diabetes, then the duodenal switch procedure should at least be on your radar as while the RNY typically shows remission rates in the 80-85% range, the DS typically shows 98-99% remission rates. There is some legitimate sense to this as the DS started as a procedure to specifically treat diabetes, to which the VSG was added to make it a weight loss treatment. It is a more technically challenging procedure to perform, which is why most bariatric surgeons don't offer it - it takes resources to develop, and most particularly maintain, the appropriate skills, but ii is well worth the effort to research it and seek out a DS surgeon for a consult. It may or may not be the right thing for you, but it should be part of your "due diligence" in making a decision. Good luck in getting through all of this!

    April 2019 Surgeries!

    Angie, I'm glad to see you're "bearing" up well! Sorry I just couldn't miss that punning occasion, but seriously I do hope everything goes really well for you. Always room for one more on our Bench of Victory, and today that's YOU!
  6. I need help quick before I lose all of my finger nails! My finger nails are so sore from ripping down to the quick. I really don’t know what to do? This just started at month 5. I started losing hair bad about 4 months and upped the vitamins and biotin. I take chewable Bariatric fusion in addition to cal-mag-zinc, k, biotin, A, and fish oil. I get between 75-100 grams of protein daily and average 1000 calories a day. I bought some Hair, skin, and nails and added it one week who but I need a fast fix here. I am not vain about my nails and don’t paint them but just want to keep them for every day use and make them stop hurting. I don’t bite them, don’t drink and don’t smoke. My meat consumption is fairly low but I get protein through Greek yogurt, beans, protein shakes, and small amounts of chicken a few times a week. Please help me keep my finger nails!

    Do you like the calcium? I suppose I'm probably deficient by now.

    Thanks!! Everyday is a little easier but that trapped air, and water intake are the toughest hurdles. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using BariatricPal mobile app

  12. I seem to always get confused though.. when you measure do you tend to go by weight or volume? I've found that they're vastly different. Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app

    The Gym...

    I started working out a month after surgery. I’m now 11 months out and have been working out 6 days a week since then. I do kickboxing which I love because I get to take out all my aggression! Lol. I find the gym too boring so I’m so glad I found something that keeps my interest. Just find something you genuinely enjoy doing and you will stick to it. Before the surgery I tried the gym and it was always a struggle because I wasn’t interested. Now that I found out what I love doing, I never have to drag my feet. It’s my fav part of the day. Who would have thought that fitness would be enjoyable?! Lol Good luck. Remember baby steps...you got this! Losing weight is one thing but working out and seeing yourself build strength and stamina is so empowering!!! Of course, there will be days where you lack motivation and just don’t feel like it...that’s when you have to push through. Don’t think and just do. 👍🏽

    Ulcers ?

    My doctor did put me on dexilant and it was good. I have been unemployed and have not been able to get it refilled. I hope next week I get it refilled. My plain ompertole is not cutting it.

    Ulcers ?

    Ask your doctor to put you on dexilant. It's way better than protonix. Also see if they can give you carafate, it helps coat. The ulcer so it can heal
  16. I tried the no fat no sugar added pudding and it tastes so much better. I won’t be able to have it the first few days while on clear liquid so I will just have to tough it out. surprised overall how well I have handled eating so few calories this week.

    Weight flies just as fast as time!

    I start each day with a protein shake at around 6am. Then I eat small meals (a protein and some vegetables or a salad) about 4 times a day and have 2 or 3 snacks (usually cold crunchy vegetables). I drink water from the time I wake up until I go to sleep. I walk about 2 miles a day and do light cardio. I really pay attention to package labels now and still haven't eaten
  18. Any May 1st sleevers?

    Non Scale Victories

    Hadn't heard from you for a while but glad you're still on the active list. Happy news for you to share. My ENT weighs metric, 102 kg today, I actually weigh less than my son, diminishing a kg a week at nearly 8 months out. Had a mini-stall while on TPN, so my weight loss now less than typical but I will celebrate it. See my Bariatric Clinic on next Tuesday, hope they also will be pleased. Down almost to regular sizing, amazed at the increased selections. I think my face looks older, my smile lines show, starting to look more like my dead ancestors instead of a "moon face" . Had someone ask if that was really ME? So a strange NSV to not be readily recognized.

    Feeling hungry

    Why am I getting hungry so often throughout the day? I had 75 grams of protein today... my nutritionist said that was a good amount for where I'm at. But I feel so hungry. I'm feeling so frustrated. I read about other people who say they have no appetite and how great it is blah blah blah... I feel dizzy when I stand up as well...and have no energy. I started at 349 and am at 308... I know this may sound dumb or whatever..but I felt so much better before this surgery. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Pro care vitamins

    Hi! I'm 2 months post-op and take bariatric multivitamins. is anyone familiar with these vitamins? Do I need to supplement with vitamin D or calcium. I kind of thi k yes on the calcium as I dont see any in the list, however it says vitamin D. I've taken the vitamin D before, but it said D3. Thank you!
