Tom P replied to raec81's topic in POST-Operation Weight Loss Surgery Q&AI lost 80lbs in 5 months and I pretty much eat anything in small amounts, but I do miss ice cream and alcoholic drinks, even a glass of wine will hit me fast. I know what I can eat and still lose and feel good: like 6 buffalo wings is it. I just picture that my stomach is the size of a banana and only eat that amount. It's been working for me.
I had my Sleeve Surgery done 3 months ago at age 67 and I'm more than satisfied with it. I've lost almost 70 lbs. The only draw back is I had to get tested extensively, besides the Psych and classes, I had to get upper and lower scoped, a nuclear stress test. It was covered under Medicare along with my secondary insurance because of being classified a morbidly obese and diabetic. I healed fast, without much pain. Both my parents are alive, dad 97, mom 95 so I have good genes and I have alway and still workout in a gym.
