    The constipation was terrible until I started soft foods. Take whatever laxative your surgeon recommends and stool softeners too. For me it lasted for the first month then it got better.

    deb2571 reacted to Airstream88 in Choosing Gastric Bypass   
    When I started my journey I was totally against Bypass and only wanted the sleeve. But at the point where I was ready to schedule surgery I picked Bypass on the recommendation of my surgeon and because I didn't want to have another surgery if I developed GERD from the Sleeve. Four months out I am very happy with my choice. I haven't experienced any negative side effects thus far. I do believe the fear of dumping does help me to resist really bad food choices. I have not tried any really sweet things except for a Hershey's Dark chocolate kiss and 1/2 of a really tiny cupcake. Even though I tolerated them I would not try to eat a full-sized dessert out of fear of dumping. I've also stayed away from fried foods for the same reason - fear of spending hours in the bathroom afterwards.
    I don't think the complexity of the Bypass should be a showstopper as long as you are confident that your surgeon is experienced and qualified.

    Most people I know with the sleeve go back eventually to just constantly dieting. And they regain fastwr.I wanted a full life style change so I went for the full bypass. Crossing my fingers. Just had my surgery yesterday.

    . My goodness I feel the same. I have only told my father and my mother and one other friend that is a doctor.
    Everyone else can get bent. I seriously
    Don't trust anyone. So many people that you think are close you you can turn on you in a second. I know it sounds negative, but I'm not a negative person. It's reality. Being this big for me has really taught me some valuable lessons about the human condition.

    deb2571 reacted to fd319 in How to get 64-70g of protein in?!   
    I like pure Protein bars, taste like a candy bar, 20g Protein, 3g sugar, but 200 calories. It's the only way I get my protein in 3 a day. 6 are in a box and they are about 7$ per box. I cannot drink my protein. The texture of Protein drinks turn my stomach.

    deb2571 reacted to FamilyGuyNJ in How do you handle people asking questions   
    I'm not embarrassed for having this surgery at all. I'd be more embarrassed if I chose to remain a fat bastard for another 10 years. So far, I've told my wife, parents, boss and work friend. All had been positive about it. I don't necessarily look for anyone's support though. I've been pretty self-reliant my entire life. I get great support from this site whenever I have questions and that's all I really need.
    I am waiting, however, for the day someone asks how I lost all this weight and I'm going to say "I had a procedure done, I had my refrigerator stapled". I've been saving that joke for long time!

    I don't get all the negativity I see here on this site....
    ( Yes I quietly read a post a day or two ago that just stayed on my mind...)
    I kept strolling because I don't care to go back and forth with ppl it's not my style. I feel how I feel and I understand ppl will always have disagreements. But in the future if a person is doing good and post a before and after pic, don't put them down! If it's a Troll.... well it sucks to be them : ( Seriously how messed up must their life be to troll a WLS website! And if it's an actually individual your discouraging them and others reading these comments from posting their success... You don't have to call BS anytime you feel that's what it is, just Ignore Them really it's not that hard and keep strolling because you truly don't know!!! But it made me feel like what if it were me??? Depending on the season my skin my be darker and my hair is always different and my body shape is not like everyone else. I hold my weight very well people don't believe that I'm as heavy as the scale says. So if I post that I lost 40 in 4 weeks or ever hey that's me . We are all different!
    This site should be to uplift ppl not to tear them down! Grow the HECK UP!!!!( I wanted to say Hell so bad but anyway)
    Guess What.... You don't have to call out BS if you see it you CAN ignore it....
    No matter what a person post on here it does not personally affect YOU!!!! SO WHAT if he/or she a LIAR, SO What if he/or she a Troll!!!
    And to all the Beautiful People Working Hard to Accomplish your Dreams....
    KEEP PUSHING DON'T ALLOW ANYONE TO DULL YOUR SHINE!
    Love you all
    P.S. I will not reply to any negative comments I will show you how to ignore ppl....

    @FrankLucena I don't think anyone wants to answer this! I used to be a smoker. I don't think you should smoke because of the risks of an ulcer etc. not to mention other dangers as you know. I don't want to lecture you and I know you just want a date but, there isn't a time frame that is good to smoke! You've gone this long, don't do it! Are you going to go back to eating crap too? You have to eat different now. Did you do the surgery just to look good or to be healthy too? Sorry, bout the lecture and the stuff you already know but obviously you need to hear it again. Your life, Your Risk! Is it worth it?

    Don't postpone your surgery. Bring your husband and son with you. Even if your husband and son have to stay in the waiting room at least they will be there. Your daughter could come later that day to take your son home.
