    Tooth decay

    Why did I not know that bariatric patients had issues with their teeth? Is this common? Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Pouch re-set

    You are doing better than me. I ate a sandwich last night and coffee and a salad today. But the only other thing I have had the last 48 hours is protein shakes and water. Great job! Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Pouch re-set

    I dont have a sleeve. Does that matter? I had gastric bypass. Plus I have reactive hypoglycemia, what do I do about that? Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Pouch re-set

    I am attempting to re-set my pouch. I'm 2.5 years out and I gained 20 lbs the last 8 months. Should I stick to premier protein and water or make myself a trim healthy mama protein shake with okra? Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hardest part

    I never took one before either but why do you have to wean off? I was told to take mine forever. Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hardest part

    Hardest part was my hormones for the first year. I felt sad after the weight dropped off so fast. But the hardest part now is maintenance, I have gained 15 lbs back my second year after surgery. Definitely not the easy way out of weight loss. SW: 230 LW: 130 and goal weight CW: 145 Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app
  9. I am 2.5 years out from gastric bypass. I had lost 100 lbs but have gained about 15 back. In November my blood sugar started dropping out of nowhere. I have seen my both my gastric doctor and my pcp and they both tell me to cut carbs and eat every two hours. Those are both ok but I have found that if I eat some carbs along with protein I have many less episodes which is great except I'm scared I'm going to gain. Anyone with experience or advice on this? I have an apt with a endocrinologist that specializes in bariatric patients but it is not until November. Sent from my SM-J700T using BariatricPal mobile app
  10. I'm confused, if it doesn't prohibit you from drinking like that what does it do? Does it prohibit food consumption only? Sent from my SM-J700T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Despair

    I am so sorry to read this. I understand your feelings so well. I was there, I mourned the loss of food. Weight loss surgery forces you to deal with the issues that you were using food to deal with. I suggest therapy or a support group. You are not alone and the emotional toll is a hard one. Hang in there and try to make new healthy habits while you are being forced to change anyway. Sent from my SM-J700T using BariatricPal mobile app
  12. I should mention I spent 4 days in the hospital and missed more than 2 weeks of work for the ruptured ulcer. It was on a seam and leaked into my system. Sent from my SM-J700T using BariatricPal mobile app
  13. I had an ulcer I didn't know about and I was drinking coffee every morning with premier protein for sweetener and creamer and tea in the afternoon. The caffeine caused the ulcer to rupture. So I switched to decaf. Now if I ever drink real coffee my arms get all funny and I feel like my heart is racing. Sent from my SM-J700T using BariatricPal mobile app
  14. I wish I could tell you. I didn't know I had an ulcer until it ruptured. But the pain eating and drinking is a good sign. Ask your Dr if you should take carafate. It helped me so much. Sent from my SM-J700T using BariatricPal mobile app

    Thanks! I will do just that. I just needed a little perspective I guess. Sent from my SM-J700T using BariatricPal mobile app
