    Who did you tell?

    I told my husband, mom, brother, sister and a few friends. Wish I could turn back time and un-tell one friend, she's been difficult, a naysayer and just genuinely not supportive. I won't tell anyone else and I'm comfortable with the choice. I'm 9 months post-op Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G925A using the BariatricPal App

    I won't regret this...right?

    Best decision I've ever made regarding my health and body. I'm 5 months out and would do it again in a heartbeat. The change and sacrifice has been worth getting my life back. All the best to yoy!

    Getting caught up on the nevers

    I think that's normal! I'm almost 4 months out and my tastes have changed so much I really don't miss anything. I think that not having processed food and carbs for so long has eliminated my cravings for it. I've replaced most carbs with cauliflower creations. At times I miss a food mentally but no real cravings. Hope this helps!

    Working out?

    I was cleared for walking right away and required to walk for 30 minutes a day. I was cleared for all exercises and the gym at 6 weeks post-op. @@jredding

    got kids?

    Maybe I'm a bad Mom but I have 3 children all under the age of ten and I didn't tell them! They talk way too much and they would worry. They just know I'm eating less and moving more...they're usually too busy eating their own meals to really pay attention to the tiny portions on my plate!

    Meet my surgeon today!

    Hi @@nbateman06 its not a silly question! When I first met with my surgeon I asked him how many procedures he's done of the bypass and sleeve, what types of complications are common with each one, how often had he had to switch from lapriscopic to open during surgery, which surgery he recommended for me and why, how long he had been doing the surgery, the success rate for his patients with each type, and the mortality rate. I also asked how the sugary would affect me in the future from absorption of medications if I got really ill. I hope this helps to give you a starting point! All the best to you!

  12. Well I had surgery yesterday and I've been in severe pain today. My surgeon advised that it's gas, so I've been walking but this pain is something serious!!! Anyone know how long this will last?
