    joy59 got a reaction from Truckerchic in Anyone else having a case of "The Lasts?"   
    Thank you Truckerchic, it is a good reminder that after surgery it is important to use all the tools and making wise choices and that everyone can find away to eat around the surgery and we each need to come to terms with that.

    If you need to say anything tell them what happened surgery did not go as expected and will need another surgery in 3 months. Hang in there I am sure you are very disappointed.

    You are an inspiration. I too was wondering if I might be too old for this surgery, sixty. I was kinda surprized when my endocrinologist suggested it, I was taking six injections of insulin and on 160 units as a starting dose each day and still couldnt keep my glucose levels under 200. So when I heard I wasnt too old I was both happy and skeptical. After hearing your journey and others on this site my skepticism is gone.
    Slow cooking peppers, sausage, and meatballs all night!!!!!! That is grounds for temporary insanity you would never be found guilty of course you may need a jury of all wls peers. But seriously you got through it without even a taste great job!!!!!

    joy59 got a reaction from UrCaliGirl in I CANT DECIDE BETWEEN BYPASS OR THE SLEEVE.   
    My understsnding is that the rny cuts out the hormone the same as the sleeve. But I believe the added benefit to the RNY is because there is a difference between head hunger and stomach hunger there is additional consequences to making the wrong choices. I had totally decided on the sleeve until I read all the posts of sleevers to bypassers and when I did talk to my surgeon he recommended the bypass because of my type2 diabetes. It is a very hard and personal decision. Good luck and remember no matter which one you choose you have given yourself a gift.

    I am scheduled for a bypass on 10/7 my daughter, 30 wanted to know if I was going shopping before or after surgery. I told her I wasnt sure what she meant and she went on to ask if I knew what size they were making me? Making me! Lol obviously she had the wrong idea about the surgery.

    I have a call out to the coordinator I found out Copra will cost $2000 a month so I really hope and pray it will still happen in September. I kept going back and forth about waiting but i really need this for my health. I appreciate all your support.
