    December bypass buddies

    Great work! Sounds like you are doing wonderful. How is your hair loss? I hit my 6 month on the 26th of June comma and I'm down about 60 pounds. My goal was a total of 100. I'm not the fastest loser but I planned it that way to help with the loose skin and hair loss. Sent from my XT1585 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Thanks for sharing Erika! What percentage of your hair is falling out? Is it noticeable? It's funny how every doctor and nutritionist can say something else. My Dr actually told me to take as much biotin as physically possible LOL. Congratulations on your loss as well. This is hard work for sure. Sent from my XT1585 using BariatricPal mobile app

    December bypass buddies

    Hi guys!! How is everyone doing? I've been a little Hiatus from here I have two kids work full time blah blah blah I know the deal. But just wanted to check in I had my surgery December 27th and I am down about 60 pounds. definitely not the fastest loser however I'll take it because it's helping with my skin not sagging so much, at least that's what I believe. Will try and post an updated side-by-side pick a little later. Curious about everyone's hair loss so far I haven't really lost any knock on wood, wondering when it started for you guys if any of you are having some hair loss. Like, what month did it start falling out? I'm pretty good about my protein intake biotin supplements in addition to my regular vitamins no idea if it works. Well Happy Spring to all of you hope you're all well have a great day! I dictate my text please excuse any typos. Sent from my XT1585 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Shoot! I think I have a stricture

    @jill doing better now, I ended up having 2 endoscopies. How are you doing?
  5. Do not do hot sauce! I tried a very mild spicy Soup 2 weeks out and it burned my throat. I I'm only 7 weeks post and still cannot do anything spicy. Not even anything slightly spicy. It really sucks because prior to surgery I would douse many things with Tabasco and red pepper flakes. Hopefully six months out I can start incorporating it back in. As far as the candy I would probably stay away from it at least for the first year is it could be a slippery slope for you. And it is sugar. Hope this helps you good luck Sent from my XT1585 using BariatricPal mobile app
  6. Hi my stricture peeps! I was dilated yesterday however I am still experiencing the feeling of food stuck in my throat. I've called Dr but not getting a clear answer as the PA's are the ones responding. My question...Did you have immediate relief? I know I may have to go again but I was dialated to 10 mm, and Dr says this is pretty good. He put me on full liquids for at least 1 week. Feeling frustrated and annoyed. It seems I should have relief now if they just opened it up.

    5 weeks out, still cant eat?

    What were you able to eat after the scope? Just had mine, confused on my food. Sent from my XT1585 using BariatricPal mobile app
  11. Hi everybody, I will be 7 weeks post rn.y tomorrow. Since last Thursday I've been having the feeling of food being stuck in my throat. Over the weekend it lasted for 48 hours and that was while I was on liquids only. The surgeon ordered an upper GI for me tomorrow. Super annoyed, but what can I do? It comes with the territory right? Just curious if anyone has had this.. did one endoscopy take care of it or did you have to have multiple? Feeling annoyed. Sent from my XT1585 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Sleeve vs bypass

    If you are a sweet eater the sleeve is not a good choice. Cookies and cakes can slip right through. Rny ( in most patients) causes severe dumping if you eat sweets. Being honest with yourself about your habits should help you make the right choice. I doubt that they get paid the same, rny is a more involved surgery. My Dr said the sleeve is so easy to perform that surgeons are popping up all over to make money. Also, if you take your vitamins and are on top of your blood work after rny, you will do fine. The fear mongering with rny is just that and not truth. Know yourself and choose wisely. I did! Sent from my XT1585 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Anyone anxious about new food?

    I know what mean about chewing, I notice that with everything. It's weird and most often kinda grosses me out when chewing that long. Any idea if we have to chew like this long term? I'm hoping after 6 month/1 year I can chew well, but not to mush. I'm scared to try salad, chicken Caesar sounds sooo good though. Sent from my XT1585 using the BariatricPal App

    6 week post op update & foods

    I take two servings a day to 6 to 8 ounces of water, or add it to applesauce, yogurt anything really. Just make sure to get your water in, when taking benefiber it will work against you if not hydrated. Sent from my XT1585 using the BariatricPal App
