  1. Thanks a million for this post! I am starting to get freaked out at ALL the hair I lose each day (especially in the morning after my shower). I am almost 6 months out. The hair loss started at about 5 months out. I am going to continue to take the vitamins and add a couple as well. My 6 mo appointment with blood work is the first week of Feb. I am anxious to see what the tests show! Thanks!

    Yes-the gas was annoying and caused some discomfort for me too the first 3-4 days. Glad you’re doing well!!

    How are you doing since surgery? Where did you get it done?

    Hi all, I had bypass on 7/23. I really miss sandwiches and am dying for a couple bites. When were you able to eat bread without problems? thanks!!

    Hi Bearly- How are you feeling? Did you have RNY? Welcome! Megan

    I hope it goes ok! Today I am feeling down and really missing food like I used to be able to eat. Just one of those days.

    Hi! I’m in St. Paul/ had my surgery on July 23rd. How is life a year out? What do you still avoid eating? Megan

    Hi Kate! I am Megan from St. Paul. I had RNY in July and am also struggling with protein. The shakes are so terrible (in my opinion). This weekend I am going to try blending up some of the tasteless protein powder with honey flavored greek yogurt, milk and berries. I hope it tastes ok! I am also going to look for other ideas for protein shakes/smoothies I can make at home that are tolerable. Let me know if you have any ideas for recipes. Take care, Megan

    Full size pills/medication

    Thank you all! I am going to give it a try today and see how full size goes.
  13. Hi, I am 6 weeks post-op and still cutting pills in halves or quarters. Some just feel too big to make it through my new stomach/intestines. When were you able to confidently take full size pills without issues? Thanks! Megan

  15. Thanks so much for sending your positive energy my way!! When and where is your surgery? I’m 5 weeks out now and started regular food on Monday. I’m being very cautious and trying to stay positive. Megan
