    Ok sooo, it's been a while since I've posted on here, probably close to a year!! , but lately I've been struggling badly with my Surgery to the point where i think I'm coming into depression. I was fantastic about 3 months before my 1 year anniversary, no complications lively always happy smiling from ear to ear just an all around happy person. Until i was about 9-91/2 months out, now I'm groupy grouchy miserable stressed angry rarely laugh or smile..because im not able to keep anything down throwing up DAILY bones and body weakening swelling in my feet then it traveled throughout my whole body now..immense body pain on a daily, in and out of the hospitals frequent doctors appointments than usual..just to tell me NOTHING lots and lots of testing!! I'm SICK OF IT????..i never regretted anything in my life..but i think im about this close of regretting this whole thing, i was MUCH healthier when i was 435 than i am at 195. Soo with that being said, has anyone else gone through this?? Or is going through it and want to give some pointers advice or references SOMETHINGGGG..i need help in the worst way!!

    So I'm wondering if anyone has tried them or discussed with your dr. I'm trying to simplify this as I feel like I'm obsessing about Water, Protein and Vitamins.
    Yeah, if I could just plug in an IV line every few days, that would be great too. ????

    Agree with @Er1n. She gave some great advice.
    The Vitamin levels and ulcers are likely the problem! Vitamin deficiencies are scary.
    Have you been able to meet with your PCP or bariatric surgeon about it and how to get it taken care of?
    What are they doing?
    Which doc is treating/managing things? For the rest of my comments I'm assuming it is your PCP.
    Just a quick word about your primary care physician, PCP, do you feel he/she understands the differences for a post by pass patient? Will they contact your bariatric surgeon/team to work together?
    If they don't, try and find one that does! I know insurance can be a nightmare but don't waste your health!
    I have a spinal cord injury and have become very picky about my PCP. Because of how it affects my life, I have to have someone who understands how I'm different. Same with rny.
    If there is something that my pcp isn't sure about, she contacts some neurologist friends and has had many other bariatric patients and she knows what to watch for. Contacts the surgeons team if there is something with her patients too. Find one worth paying.
    They can do I.V. infusions for Vitamins. The Patches and B12 shots Er1n mentioned can be good too.
    My step mom had rny years ago and is having problems with ulcers now. Egg drop Soup helps her. You could add the unflavored powder to it.
    Keep us updated. Positive vibes and prayers your way.

    I'm sorry you are going through this and feeling beyond awful!
    Because I want to understand things better, what is the lab work saying about Vitamin levels? Specifically B12, Iron, Calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D. Are they within normal range?
    What are you eating? I imagine it is probably the same good stuff you were before the problems started but it helps me get a better picture.
    Does your doctor require you to take some sort of daily acid reducer like prevacid?
    Hoping things get better soon!

    See now we can use the advice from the ppl that are a year or two out of surgery.... like @@LittleBill or @insidematchesout I think that's her name there's a few others. I hope they can help I personally feel it may not have anything to do with the surgery and I'm sure they will question your diet. But I as say to everyone I hope things get better for you.

    So many... I use a normal towel after I shower instead of a beach towel. I use a normal public bathroom stall instead of the handicap stall. I cross my legs all the time. I don't sweat as much. I am never out of breath. I can run up the stairs at my house instead of hanging on the banister all the way up. I'm in single digit clothing. I don't dread being in a picture... In fact I'm front and center now. So many more.... I smile all the time now!!!
