    I have PCOS...

    I have PCOS also had the DS surgery on 8-6-2013 and I've lost a total of almost 200 lbs. I started at 350lbs and am 165lbs. I've had some stalls but all in all I'm pretty happy with my results being 1 yr 5 months post op I think I've done pretty good. I still wasn't too loose between 20-40lbs but with the excess skinmy drs say in at a good weight if I evert want the skin removed... oh and my PCOS was testosterone based my testosterone was OVER 100 and is now down to 18. Although I had regular cycles before my surgery since they've been crazy... anywhere between 12-20 day cycles but sometimes I'll bleed 2 weeks straight. Since ice been stalled and on bcp for a couple months they've gotten regular now. Hoping to get my BFP sometime soon.
  2. Hello everyone. I'm about 1 yr and 5 months post op surgery was August 6 2013 my HW was 350lbs. And I'm currently 165lbs. Still about 20 to 40lbs till my actual goal but this far I'm pretty happy. Well I took my measurements a few months back. I've lost maybe 10 lbs since thing but here's my NSV... Hips: 38 inches (then) Hips: 32 inches (now) Waist: 35 inches (then) Waist: 29inches(now) Bust: 36 inches (then) Bust: 30 inches (now) Neck: 13 inches (then) Neck: 12 inches (now) I've lost 6 inches in hips 6 inches in waist and 6 inches in my bust!! Along with an inch in my neck. :-) now only if I could lose this last 20lbs or so and the excess skin oh how I hate the excess skin!! Anyways this feels great to know 10 lbs and 6 inches from each area that's 19 inches all over lost... :-) hmm anyone else with their NSV... oh also I can wear a size 7 with medium tops :-) from size 24/26 to a 7. And from a 3xl-4xl shirt to mediums! Yay

    Loose skin

    I'm down almost 185lbs and wanna lose 30lbs more. I'm at 165 lbs and was at 350lbs as my highest. My skin isn't the worst but not the best. I'm still trying to figure out how to help the skin. Other than working out and trying to tone up as much as possible I'm wondering about creams and whatnot too... hopefully I'll find something to help. My belly arms and thighs definitely need some help.... maybe get a 360 body lift in the near future.....

    Just wondering

    I am 1 yr 4 months post op from my ds. I once weighed 350lbs. Today I'm 165lbs. I still want to lose about 20-30lbs. But just curious if anyone who's post op at least as far as I am or even further out has had any issues with foods now that they didn't before. Such as hamburger. Starting about a month ago I started getting sick every time I'd eat hamburger meat. The next day bad stomach pains or in the toilet like crazy. Also throwing up right after eating hamburger meat and I don't over eat. Also anything dairy makes me sick now too and all this just started about a month ago. I thought it was from some new pills my Dr put me on. But I noticed it's just from the certain things I eat..... has this happened where you're fine up until after your year or so and it suddenly make you sick? I just want to know that it's not just me and if it is I definitely would consult my doctor. Also I now actually get the full feeling faster than I did before now my body finally tells me to stop eating cause you're full. Even before I eat the amount the Dr told me I could eat. It's weird cause it all just started about a month ago... well anyways just curious on this. Thanks :-)

    Curious

    My Dr never told me a time frame. And like the rest say you'll know when your body is ready. If you try too soon you can hurt yourself and you especially don't want that...
  9. I am a year and 4 month post op from a DS and I never really got the full feeling until.i was in the bathroom throwing up . But at 6 weeks out i was on liquids and released to soft food then. But when I started eating foods certain things I could only have 1 of 2 bits of then other things I could eat 6oz of depending on what it was. about a month ago my stomach finally started to tell me HEY I'M FULL NO MORE PLEASE. so it can take time. Like I said never got the full feeling when eating till it was way too late and I throw it up. Now I get it around the 1/4 cup to 3/4cup time done again depending on what I'm eating. Also my Dr said after 1 yr post op I could eat up to 1 cup of food at a time if I do that I'm throwing up. So just try to listen to your body. Some people don't know it but get full and get pain between their shoulders or they get headaches. Just measure your foods and try not to eat and drink at same time as this pushes the food out and makes you eat more..

    Experiences with Phentermine?

    I've used this once my Dr told me it's basically "meth in a legal pill form" I had bad anxiety from it along with it really messed with my blood pressure and heart rate so the Dr took me off of it. It worked for my sister but not for me. Everyone is different

    Any one lost more than 200 lbs ?

    I've lost almost 185lbs. I'm 1yr 4 months post op. Still 15 lbs to go to lose 200lbs. But I'm trying to lose at least 20-30more lbs. I'm 165 lbs right now. I know a lot of people who have lost over 200lbs with the DS.

    August 2013 surgeries

    How's everyone doing? I am almost 1 yr post op! August 6 is right around the corner... Well my stats are this... HW: 350lbs SW: 302lbs CW: 175lbs GW:130-150lbs (depending on skin...) I still have a ways to go but I've lost a lot of weight and am feeling great. I am having some medical issues tho they aren't exactly caused by the surgery (far as I know) but having liver issues which idk if it's related to surgery or if I just got the short end of the stick and not found till after surgery but either way I'm praying for good results ... Don't look too good tho. Anyways hope you are all doing GREAT... Congrats to us all getting to our 1 yr surgiversary this month! Yay

    I Want To See Before & After Pics! (Cont'd)

    Hey everyone hope all is well I'm about 11 months post op today!! WOW HOW TIME FLIES!!! Anyeays here's my stats HW: 350lbs SW: 302lbs CW: 179lbs I'm down almost 200lbs from my highest weight and since surgery I am just over 120lbs I am a slow loser now especially lol I had the Duodenal Switch on 8-6-2013 and I'm so happy I did. any bariatric surgery I believe is great for people who need the extra tool to help them. My goal weight is 160lbs and ultimately I want to be around 130-140 lbs by this time next year so hopefully I can still use this tool and get to my goal. I'm definitely going to need to have my excess skin taken off but that's something I'll worry about after I get to the weight I want to be at here's pics from this 4th of July weekend...

    August 2013 surgeries

    Everyone looks awesome!! My stats are HW: 350lbs SW 8-6-13 : 302lbs CW: 188lbs GW:170lbs Here's some before & after
  23. I also gain about 7lbs during tht time of the month and it takes about a week post that time to go away. I was talkingn to my surgeon and he said he sees paitients that don't lose a pound till their 3-4months post op I'm like that's crazy but it happens. Our bodies are in shock so that's why this happens. I also thought I wouldn't lose and I'd be the exception to the rule but I am dwn from 350lbs to 190lbs. Day of surgery I weighed 302 so that's just over 110lbs dwn since surgery almost 9months ago!
