  1. I weighed 160 lbs this morning. My son got married today. Mother-Son dance.
  2. Some may combat a degree of low blood sugar. I am having issues with my sugar dropping into the 30's and 40's. I find it very difficult to recover to a safe level. Any tips?
  3. So I recently started throwing up what I thought was blood. It was far more sinister. It turned out to be my first bowel obstruction since RNY surgery. Now I am no stranger to bowel obstructions as I have had many of them in the past as a 24 yr Veteran Survivor of CD. This one was directly at the site of reanastomosis. Any body else having any issues?

    I went through this. Your surgical provider needs to call your main insurance and have the 80/20 rule explained.

    I Got The "Foamies" Today

    I had RNY May 3rd. Doesn't matter what goes down, foamies. I also have Crohn's Disease so I am wondering if I need to step back into liquids for a few days to see if maybe I have inflammation in my new stomach. I always take longer to heal than the average person. My tummy incisions arent healed yet. I assume it has somethimg to do with not being healed.
  9. 12 lbs down in 8 days. My surgery was 8 days ago. I will take it. I am NEVER HUNGRY and I have to make myself eat something. Protein is a struggle!!! I'm sipping sipping sipping. Best decision ever.

    Tomorrow is surgery day!!

    My surgery took 6 hours. Lots of complications with the hernias. I ended up with a collapsed lung and surgical emphysema (crackling skin chest neck face). Had a chest tube to allow space for my lung to reinflate, it worked. Had a rough first few days. Made it work. Lots of swelling and almost a week post op. One day at a time. It is improving. Tylenol is my friend.

    May bypass

    I had my VSG to RNY revision May 3rd. It wasnt bad. The gas was the most painful part. I am almost a week post op. Trying to get used to the smelly gas and the sharts. A part no one ever mentioned lol.

    I made it!!

    Thank you all. I am suprised that there is no pain. I had this surgery laproscopically. Maybe that is the difference?

    I made it!!

    I developed a collapsed lung after surgery. I had to have a chest tube jabbed in. After 2 day I am proud to say, "I made it to the losers bench!" I am on full liquids til I gor bavk and see my Dr on the 8th them we move to full liquids. I have little pain at all. Just some mild discomfort from swelling. Still taking some chewable gas pills.
