    Jen Beck reacted to Healthy_life2 in DO YOU THINK THE SURGERY WAS WORTH IT?   
    Welcom to the site
    I am so sorry you have experience complications. Know that you are not alone. I can understand why you feel this was not worth it.
    Some of us have no complications and others unfortunately have them. I fall in the category of I don’t regret this. I bounced back from surgery and maintain years out. I have compassion for anyone that experienced what you are going through.
    Here is a link. There is a search button at the top of the forum. You can type the topic that you are looking for. I typed complications.

    Phentermine does work, and you still have your surgery to curb your portions after using it. It still takes work either way. I think bashing anyone's attempt to get on track is wrong, getting there, then staying there is why we had surgery. If it was simply calories in, calories out, and exercise wouldn't we already be there and not need surgery in the first place? I used it for a short time but after 2 days it kept me awake for like 20 hours several days....and that I couldn't handle. There is also diethylpropion and some phentermine combinations too. If regular doc won't prescribe, bariatric ones will, mine did.

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a question... Has anyone taking Phentermine after weight loss surgery? I’m 2 year out and I’m considering getting some just to loose the extra weight and get to my goal. Because I have been stalled for 7 months. I just have 30 more pounds before I reach my goal. Thanks.

    I’m set for 10/15 and I question myself all the time.

    I get scared but then I remind myself that it would be scarier if I don’t fix my health problems.

    This can only happen by losing weight and keeping it off!

    My date is set and I'm thinking to myself - is this really the right thing? Yes, I KNOW it is! I need to be healthy - my joints just ache and other obese issues cause trouble.
    But, I read over stories all the time here - both good and bad. Then wonder - What if I end up having consequences? And then scary in another way - what happens when I'm thin? (Having not really been anywhere near thin since 15.)
    Anyway - I just had to put this out there to other understanding souls :)
