    It finally happened. Onederland!

    My heaviest weight was 370. In 2010 I had the band installed (such a mistake, waste of time, money and effort IMO) March 10th, 2018 at my Pre-Surgical check in I was 310. March 21st, 2018 at check in for surgery I was 294.4. I had the band removed and revised to the bypass. Today, January 23rd, 2019. 308 days after surgery... I hit a number that I haven't seen in more than 20 years Onederland. I'm down 95 lbs since surgery, 110.6 lbs from pre-surgical. And a staggering 170.6 lbs from my heaviest weight. I need to thank so many people that if I tried, I'd forget someone and then we'd start with the hard feelings. So I'll go with this. Thank you. If you've helped me through this in any way, shape, or form, Thank you.

    Hi everyone So I'm 24years old, female and on Monday the 21st of January 2019 I had my gastric bypass. So far everything is going great and I feel really lucky to be doing so well. I have to admit I did not do the pre-operative diet but this was decided through a consult with my surgeon; upon release from hospital on Wednesday the 23rd of January, I weighed exactly 120.2kg. I've decided I will wait until Monday to weigh myself again but I'm excited to heal and get myself on this journey back to health. Anyway, I'll stop rambling now, just wanted to say hi and if anyone has important tips on anything then please let me know my water intake is great at 1.5-2.5L per day already! #hydrate hydrate hydrate Sent from my BLA-L29 using BariatricPal mobile app

    My only incision was in my belly button. Self dissolving stitches and some sort of glue that formed a sort of "plug". It started to fake away about 10 days later and completely fell off in about 2-3 weeks.

    I have been drinking with no issues now all of a sudden today everything I drink tastes dusty or furry or as though I have a hair stuck in my throat. Any ideas what it may be and how to get rid of it?
