    Hello everyone I had my surgery on Nov 9th 2011, my surgeon was Dr. Macik...if you have any questions about the surgery please feel free to ask!!
  2. I always lifted weights so even before the surgery I had some muscle tone there...I had a really big stomach...so when I began to drop the weight my muscle just came through...I had all that fat covering up the muscle. Majority of the men that have this surgery prolly have never lifted weights...so going into the surgery they have no muscle tone at all..so after the surgery they have bad posture and look weak...They didnt have a good solid foundation before the surgery... If u competed in Strong Man before you already have a solid foundation and when that fat melts off ur going to be a beast at 250 cuz ur going to a solid 250.
  3. No Problem sweetie!! Good Luck on your journey!!
  4. After you have the surgery you wont be able to lift any weights for about 3 months and once ur able to lift again u will bascially after to start from scratch because of the way you will be eating. I am not sure how much you weigh now but u prolly can lift alot of weight now...thats because of how much u eat and ur current weight. Once ur able to hit the gym hard again and get your eating under comtrol u will begin to lift more..not as much as before but u will not weigh as much. When I got back in the gym I could only put a 45 on each side for bench. I was freaking out but as time passed its now getting back to what I am used to. So believe me brother having the surgery is worth it...ur range of motion will improve which will allow u to do more excercises...
  5. No problem bro...bring on the questions...I was in ur shoes once...I had the surgery in Nov '11...I had a couple setbacks and could not workout like I wanted untill Feb '12. I have always lifted weights so getting back in the gym was no sweat...I started of with just one scoop of protein powder(25 grams) twice with some low fat milk..I did that for about 3 months..Once I got my strentgh back I began taking amino acid tablets which is just pure protein in a pill form and I started talking 2 scoops of Protein powder (50 grams) twice a day with a protein and fruit juice made by Silk. I think the protein really helped with bulding lean muscle..like I said in the post I have never gained weight and dropped size at the same time...I feel great and I knbow for a fact that I wouldnt have been able to do this without the surgery
  6. I had complications so I didnt start to work out untill feb '12...I had the surgery in November "11
  7. Coki the easy part will be losing the weight...u cant eat so u will lose weight very fast, the hard part is changing your body, you have to eat lots of protein and make sure u add some type of weight regimen to make sure u dont all that loose skin.

    Normal Ever Come Back?

    I am a year and it took m some timeto figure out what I can eat...there will be some things that u ate all the time before the surgery that u might never eat again... I cant eat steak anymore. Its take too long to chew and it is hard to digest. Make sure u take advantage of ur current stage....u wont have an appetite...but it will copme back out of no where!!!!!!
