Hi my name is Sherrie, I guess I had signed up quite awhile ago and had some problems with getting hacked so i lost lots of my contacts. Just found my way again. I am at my goal weight and have been since my 6th month. I had some problems with Strictures so I feel like that is why I got below my goal weight. I lost as low as 117#'s my Suregon and my PCP got concerned about my loss and how fast I lost it. I managed to gain 8#'s back and even this amount made me feel so much better. I started having problems soon after my RNY. I had my 1st endoscope and dialations in Nov of 2013. ( My RNY was July 2, 2013) then again I had problems in Dec of 2013 Jan of 2014 July of 2014 with my last endoscope in January 2015. I did change Dr. I felt like my Suregon really didn't care one way or another. He went so far as to call me A PROBLEM child. So I went to PORTLAND OREGON'S Health and Science University Baratric Center.  That is where I had my last endo done. No problems since!!  I have gained back so much of my life!! I used to be insulin resistant and took 100 units of insulin 2 times a day plus Metformin 2 times a day. I took 12 different medications now I take only 4 plus my vitamins. No more Diabetes meds!! I am able to walk 4 miles 4 times a week!! I am 5.4 and 60 years old!! Not to bad for a old lady!! LOL  I still have High blood pressure but I think it is because I don't know how to let things go and I get so stressed out for the little things. If anyone can tell me how to get rid of stress please do. So enough about me, lets get to know each other.
