    Gastritis and RNY

    Not leaving the remnant stomach is an option (that is what is done when the surgery is for something like gastric cancer - you don't want it lying around in there, lol) but there are trade offs as usual. The main one that I can think of is that the stomach is no longer there producing acid to neutralize the bile being secreted just downstream of it, so there may be greater chances of bile reflux. AFAIK, there are ways to minimize that when the surgery is done, but these are things to discuss with the surgeon as to how best handle your individual problems. If I had revised my VSG ro an RNY a few years ago, that is how it would have been done - no remnant stomach.

    Gastritis and RNY

    I wonder why they don’t just get rid of that remnant. They throw away the rest of the stomach with vsg. Lol. Sounds funny throwing away stomachs. I’m hoping that the diet change and hopefully reduction in meds will rid me of gastritis for good!

    Weighing your food on a food scale

    My nutritionist said right from the start to weigh and measure everything. It was a real eye opener for me on my "guesstimated weights/measures" vs. the real thing. I haven't had my surgery yet, but I plan to continue weighing, measuring and tracking to keep myself on track for long term success. It's like anything else once you get in the habit it just becomes second nature when you're planning your food. Good luck on your journey you got this!!!

    This might be why, when you consume foods like this and then go to bed your body can't burn them off... try switching your cheat meal to the middle of the day to see if that helps any.

    Long term physical considerations

    Most WLS post ops lose 100 # and more. This changes the body's sense of balance and posture. The way we hold our body is not the same as before and this can result in physical strain, especially in the shoulders, back, hips and knees. What are some strategies that you have re-learned in terms of sitting, standing and walking? I believe this topic is not posted about much so any ideas would be helpful to post in this thread. For example, I have lost 180 # and have a totally different muscle composition from head to toe. And I am still working on how to hold myself differently at almost 2 years post op. I am sure this is a problem for other folks too.
