    Sleeved 2 years ago, thinking of D/S. Any here go to Mexico?

    Yes I agree you should have had a gastric bypass at your weight. If Dr Ungson is no longer in practise I am sure that whomever he trained is well qualified. I had bariatric surgeries in Mexico by two different doctors and both surgeries were great. Best of luck!! Oh and I hear that yes DS is under 10,000 I had a quote and I beleive it was 9 and change.

    I've lost 25lb in 8 days on PRE-OP diet

    Congratulations! I assume you have a lot of weight to lose or have been retaining a lot of water. If the former is the case it definitely makes sense. Some also retain a lot of water. What is your situation?

    Singles website match.com

    I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with this website. I have not had a date in a very long time and feel that I am ready to start. You have to pay for a membership which for me would be about $30.00 a month but they guarantee that if you don't meet someone in 6 months that they will give you six months free. Any insite would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Don't worry so much about the incisions. They fade away to where you can't even see them. Check here at Bariatric Pal to see if they have a surgeon who performs this.

    Mashed potatoes

    Well if they are making you sick right now don't eat them, try something else pureed eggs, cottage cheese, protein pudding.
  6. Since I have reached my goal weight I am profoundly appreciative of the words people use to describe me; Slim(heard this a few times) Thin - Wow! Fit - now this one I am shocked at, I have never before been fit. Teenie Tiny - this one is funny! What words have people used to describe you? Are you amazed, shocked, happy, grateful or do you even not believe it.
  7. For me there is no comparison. No problems like with the band. Gastric bypass offers great restriction and no hunger. I have surpassed my goal something I could not accomplish with the band. I have not puked once and can eat salads and chicken. Remember the bypass is just a tool you technically can gain weight back with any weight loss surgery however I believe gastric bypass offers great restriction and dulls any hunger you used to have.

    19 days until "Revision" ...HELP?

    I had a revision from sleeve to gastric bypass; the best decision I could have made. Weight maintenance seems to be much smoother with the GB and I am able to keep it off and have great restriction. If you have a great surgeon, don't worry, you will do great!
  9. Something strange that I have heard from two different senior citizens, "Are you on the no food diet"? Must be something they did back in the day.........................................

    100% Pure Peanut Powder

    1/4 of a teaspoon of sugar for a two tablespoon serving is a very small amount. PB2 is a delicious alternative to the real thing.

    Changes in Shoe Sizes?

    Oh yes absolutely! For me I didn't have a wide foot wore a normal B width. Now my foot is much narrower and all of my old shoes me feet are sliding right through(sandals). My shoes also are too wide. I haven't lost in length I still wear a size 11.

    When do we stop focusing on food?

    Well you shouldn't be obsessing over food but always aware and planning what you are eating. in order to keep your weight off you have too. It is when you stop being aware and focusing on food that you WILL gain. Planning will become your favorite thing to do!

    I feel devastated..

    Well he would know as he is a coordinator for BP Mexico. And yes the number of surgeries they have performed is often time much greater than surgeons elsewhere. So yes HIS statement is true and factual!

    MGB.. Reversible or not?!

    help me to understand why you would want it reversed? From what I know they still make your stomach pouch so this cut away from your larger stomach. Would not think you could reverse this.
