    BCBS denial

    Another option would be to self pay. Most people can qualify for a line of credit and then just lay it back over the next two years. I’ve known three people who did that so they didn’t have to deal with insurance and were able to schedule the surgery within two weeks.

    Stomach feels nothing

    Cat woman is spot on. My hunger came back at six months so enjoy your honeymoon phase and you are doing great so far!

    Left Sided Abdominal Tightness

    I had similar issues on occasion but they went away after a few months. I would suggest calling your surgeon and discuss with their office.

    RNY because of GERD, not weight loss?

    I had GERD pretty bad pre RNY and since surgery have had zero issues. My surgery was for Weight with gerd a secondary issue.

    Taking Charge! C25K day 1!

    That is awesome @looly! I had to abandon my plans after three weeks as my knees were in pain. I’ve been resting and hoping to try again next week. I went to a running store to get fitted for shoes and they said mine were fine so probably just pain from getting back outside! Well hopefully.... 10k. That is awesome!

    Im scared of gaining weight through this crisis

    I posted in another thread that I am taking this time to challenge myself. I started c25k yesterday and want to run a 5k in the future. After trying to motivate my sales staff I realized I needed it too so I’m challenging myself to come out of this quarantine in better shape! Between trying to run, using a kettlebell, dumbbells, a couple of bands and back to the basics, ie pushups, lunges, walking planks, etc, I’m just trying to stay active. #quarantineweightlosschallenge 😎 I agree turn off the news - control the things you can control and don’t worry about the things you can’t control. This virus will take its course and nothing anyone can do about it and in reality you only have a 3% chance of hospitalization. 97% of the population will be fine!

    Taking Charge! C25K day 1!

    Sitting at my home computer this morning typing an email to my sales staff, trying to keep them motivated during these very trying and challenging times, I realized I was giving them the advice I need to hear myself. Its been two years since I started this journey and 506 days since my RNY surgery. I'm down 125 pounds and life is flippin fantastic! I have been losing and gaining the same five pounds for five months but I'm ok with that, having a couple of glasses of red wine in the evening is most likely the cause coupled with a lack of any real exercise program - I am active, just not working out - but my life is filled with happiness right now. Fast forward to this morning and it hit me, I'm motivating others but not myself. Today that changes! I laced up my running shoes and started day one of C25K. Running a 5k without stopping has always been a bucket list item and now I am going to do it!

    Post rny throw up

    I did throw up a couple times post op but just the foamies, not a full blown exorcist hurling that I was pre op - that is what I fear - dry heaving and the likes. Thanks for the replies. I’m sure one day I’ll get the the flu or something and it will happen just curious what others have been through ahead of me.

    Post rny throw up

    Just curious for those post RNY have you thrown up? Preop I was a violent upchucker - bruised my throat once... but 18 months post op had my first almost upchuck. Got the sweats and felt queasy but didn’t pray to the porcelain god. What’s it like post op???

    Anyone else have a problem with saggy balls after surgery?? No one told me I’d have to lift them up before sitting down after losing so much weight.....

    Taking a big dump

    Little ones? Try getting a little dehydrated and eat too much cheese and steak. You’ll wrap a blanket around it and name it!

    Possible Revision

    Revision seems to be a common thread around here and I’ve always wondered if it’s so doctors can get two surgeries in instead of going straight to RNY??

    SuperBowl food

    Great ideas. @chubRub what’s your buffalo recipe?

    Gastric Bypass for Senior Citizen

    Good luck! I had RNY at 47 and it made me feel like I was in my 20’s again. You may not feel like your 20’s but your energy level will most likely shoot us and quality of life will probably dramatically change.

    SuperBowl food

    For those watching the super bowl or having a party, what dishes are you making? I’m thinking about some smoked chicken wings on the big green egg but curious what others might be making. Post op things are limited but temptations are every where at a party!
