    The 1st couple of months are the hardest thing you will ever do in your life!!!! You have sent your body into shock! Hormones are dumping into your system like crazy! Your hair will be falling out! Your skin won’t know if if should be oily or dry! Your body is going on the wildest ride of it’s life, it’s crazier then childbirth! But in 6 months I want you to come back and tell us how you feel! You will have more energy then you know what to do with! You will be excited because the clothes in your closet will be falling off of you! You will be shopping in a whole different area of the store! You will have to get a ring guard so your rings don’t fall off of you! You will be able to shave your legs & paint your toenails and tie your shoes! You won’t feel uncomfortable exercising!
    The world is gonna open up & you will forget how awful the 1st couple of months were!
    You gotta trust all the reasons you ever thought of having the surgery in the 1st place.

    Dumping is random for me. Sometimes I can have a small bowl of Cereal with almond milk & sometimes I can’t 😞
    I never know what it is going to be.

    A surgeon told me that eating small amounts of sugar trains the part of your intestines to accept the sugar over time & after years of this the sugar won’t bother you anymore & you can go right back to eating how you did before.

    I’m 4 years out & the almond mike made me dump just the other night.

    The 1st couple of weeks can be really hard. Your body just went through a great big shock! It will be easier I promise!
    Between prescriptions & supplements I take an lot of pills. I use the PatchMD Vitamins. They might cost a little but for me not having to swallow one more big pill pie worth or & my labs have always been great.
    I take a multil, B12 & a D. I think it’s the bypass set.
    Things will get better I promise!

    YEAH! Weighing the same as your driver's license is such a great NSV (non scale victory)!
    When I was asked my weight at a doctors office (the ones that don't weight you) or for an activity like riding a horse I used to say "Do you want my real weight or my driver's license weight?" I always have to be the smart ass!

    toodlerue reacted to Therese22 in gastric bypass for reflux   
    Hello Jelani,
    I primarily had bypass for weight loss but I am so excited to no longer have to take my acid reflux medication. Even if your surgery was primarily for acid reflux you still need some guidance on how to transition as your new pouch matures. I recommend seeking out a Bariatric Nutritionist to start and consider a therapist as well to support you.

    I didn’t even think about an ENT, but I am hopefully seeing mine tomorrow to do a balloon sinuplasty (still waiting for insurance approval for that😾).
    I’m not having any vertigo issues at this time & I know all about vertigo!!!

    toodlerue got a reaction from summerseeker in 4 years & nauseous   
    I had a RNY over 4 years ago. For the last 6 months I have been very nauseous most days. Somedays I can’t do much. It’s not anyone thing like the smell of food or what I eat.
    I have been to my PCP, a Gastrologist & a naturopath. No one can figure anything out. I have had a barium swallow test & an EDG. Everything looks normal.
    I’m not comfortable going back to my surgeon because he’s not a bariatric surgeon. I had the surgery for medical reasons not related to obesity. He told me to get all my info from the internet. I don’t think he knows how much different info is on the internet for gastric bypass!

    Has this happened to anyone else? If so what was wrong & did you do?

    It felt like high school bullying because they probably were in high school!!
    Try to brush it off. You are doing great & you will be down in the low 200’s before you know it!
    But just wait until you have lost a bunch of weight! It is so hard not to tell someone that was the same size as you once were that they should have weight loss surgery!
    Everyone is fighting their own battle that no one else can see.
