    Faith2002 got a reaction from Wanda247 in Does Belching/Burping Ever Stop?   
    Yes, should be part of the "new normal". I'm almost 6 months out from Bilopancreatic deudonal switch with double anastomosis and the nutritionist told all of us who had different forms of weight loss surgery at our seminar that the following symptoms let you know your full: hiccups, burp or nose running. She said that once you have that first symptom to stop eating because that means you are full. If you don't have the symptom eat until you do. She told us that we have to train our stomach to know the full filling because if we don't we can sabotage our weight loss by either not eating enough or over eating. I normally always hiccup or burp. We were also told to allow ourselves 20-30 minutes for each meal 4-6 times a day and spaced out 3-4 hours.

    I'm sorry but I stand by my statement that it is terrible for someone to go through all of this just to eat garbage again ("if that's what made them big to begin with"). Be it once or every day. And I feel no shame in being judgmental about that. We can agree to disagree. And, yes, to each their own. People can ruin their surgery if they want to. Or take unnecessary risks. If it doesn't affect them, awesome. But if it may, why the heck would you risk that. Baffles the mind.

    Mousecat88 I completely agree with you. I have no intentions of even trying what I would consider a trigger food for me. I know it would only take a bite and then it would be on possibly and I don’t want that to happen. Surgery alone doesn’t do it and you have to eat the right foods (protein, etc) Portion Control, Water and I also believe exercise to keep the weight off. I like the saying “You’ve come too far to only come this far” which I think can apply with WLS.

    For me it’s everyday. Did the same before surgery. I need the accountability. Almost a year out.

    Normal to question what have I done. Walk, walk, walk. Sip, sip, sip. Repeat. Sooner you get up a move the better you will feel. Had me up walking same day.

    Faith2002 reacted to KimTriesRNY in Make DS public or not?   
    I’m a bypass patient but my two cents is keep it to yourself. Tell only those that may need to know...spouse, etc.
    Once you disclose the information you cannot untell people.
    Lots of judgement still surrounds weight loss surgery.
    There are plenty of people to follow on YouTube, instagram, etc. already.
    Think long and hard.
    You may regret telling people, but rarely will you hear someone say they regretted keeping it to themselves.

    Faith2002 got a reaction from Glamgirl in Duodenal switch 8 weeks post op not hungry...ughh   
    I will be 11 weeks out tomorrow post Bilopancreatic Deudonal Switch and I still have trouble somedays getting my fluid/protein in. There are days I have to make myself eat and some days I will be starving for one of my mini meals. I feel that my weight loss has been slower than what I would like however my surgeon says I'm in the range of what he wanted to see. He says some have lost more and some have lost less. As far as the taste I still don't feel that my taste buds are like they were before surgery. Also for the Vitamins Bariatric Advantage has a Vitamin that is specifically for DS patients (High ADEK Multi capsule) and I only have to take 2 a day with an added Iron and Calcium.

    I also had around 150 lbs to lose along with PCOS. Does your doctor offer Bilopancreatic Deudonal Switch with Anastomosis? That is what my surgeon suggested due to the PCOS causing a metabolic issue for me. He felt the other surgeries was not what I needed.

    People having the sleeve are having to convert to the bypass (or so my surgeon told me). The sleeve was intended to be a temporary solution with the bypass being the final step. That being said, lots of people have a lot of success with the sleeve. With 150+, if it were me, I'd do the bypass & not waste my time with a band or sleeve, but I think it's something you'd have to discuss with your surgeon to determine which will work best for you. I have never had much will-power, so the bypass was the recommended surgery in my case. I had a band previously, and that was a total waste of time & money in my case.

    Congrats! The weight loss does slow down after the first month or so, but it will continue . . . and you are already looking great!

    I also have dealt with kidney stones prior to surgery. Not very far out from surgery. My urologist told me to only take calcium citrate as the Calcium carbonate increases kidney stones. You even have to watch if you take Tums as they are carbonate based.
