    My Story

    My story started in 2012 my moms doctor told me if I lost weight we could work on me being her living donor. So I went to my doctor said I need this to save her life help me. We got me set up for the sleeve. At almost 300 pounds I would have done anything to help her. I had the sleeve done March 2014 and after getting to 190 her doctor told me I couldn't be her donor she wouldn't survive the surgery. So fast forward to 2019 I have major heart burn so bad even water gives me heart burn. By 2020 i was over the heart burn and the miserable life I met with my new doctor he informed me due to my sleeve it will be constant and just get worse so we did a revision and basically went to the bypass. Its been a very long and exhausting road. I wouldn't change it for anything but I would reconsider the original surgery.

    I did mine at UF when you went in did you tell them you didn't drink? Also once you have the surgery you are going to have not drink period your body will be limited and you can't have what room you have taken up by something that will give you nothing in nutritional value. I can't say what they will or won't do but if they make you wait and do another blood my suggestion is to work on the no drinking period. If you continue to have alcohol show up they can refuse to do the surgery. Not because they don't understand but because they don't want you to fail and hurt yourself.

    February 2021 bypassers?

    Its a mental thing you want texture and the oral fixation. You have to remember you've been eating for years its a habit. I blend up veggies and mix with a non flavored protein this way I get some texture with my protein. It gets easier.

    Pace yourself once you get to enjoy your food no long pureed its worth it. Let yourself heal. You'll enjoy it so much more.
  9. I love cauliflower pizza! Just like I like cauliflower rice, and cauliflower mashed.
  10. Thats fair. I also bake cheese and use it as the crust. Like the cheese crisps for salads.

    February 2021 bypassers?

    Hello!! I just had my bypass on 2/3/2021!!
  12. I had the sleeve in 2014 when my heaviest was almost 300. Ive stayed pretty consistent at 160 until acid reflux got so bad my weight went up. With my new surgeon he informed me had the previous doctor asked about acid reflux he should have never done the sleeve. Turns out the sleeve makes acid reflux worse. I just had the bypass on 2/3/2021 to help with the acid reflux and I can tell you right from day one its already a huge difference. I dont have a constant burn when I drink water. 

  13. Do you like cauliflower? I enjoy this pizza bowl made with cauliflower and I dont miss pizza as much.
