    Not only are you eating next to nothing, but your body is in major healing mode. Yes, this is normal and may take quite a while before your energy returns to normal. We're all different.

    toodlerue reacted to justmetj in Bypass or Sleeve   
    I'm surprised they are pushing you to get the sleeve with your history of gerd. It would make me wonder if they're more confident in preforming the sleeve rather than RNY. You might want to get a second opinion.

    Ice! You can freeze Water in a Dixie cup & then use the big ice cube to massage your hip.
    I have also used a “muscle roller stick” on my hip when it felt like a very, very tight muscle in my hip.
    A foam roller can also help.

    toodlerue got a reaction from BecomingMeMissy in Hormones??? What is going on with me?   
    It could also be the anesthesia leaving your system. I have quite often found myself an emotional wreck 5-14 days after a surgery. I’ve had 12 surgeries in my 54 years!

    I sometimes have to take a swallow of Water at the end of my meal just to get the taste of the food out of my mouth.
    My husband makes me get water when we go out just to make the server feel better🤣

    Be stronger then the cheese balls! Can you move them out of your site? That’s what I have to do when I’m tempted by a food that has been brought into the house that is my weakness.

    toodlerue got a reaction from GreenTealael in Surgery for illness instead of weight loss - Gastroparesis   
    I had a RNY because of a previous failed surgery (10 years ago) to correct my L shaped esophagus. 1/2 of my stomach was above my diaphragm. food was getting stuck just about every day. My BMI was about 34.
    I didn't have to do any of the pre-op things that people with high BMI’s have to do. My doctor wasn’t a WLS surgeon. He was a thoracic surgeon & told me to find all of my info on the internet.
    After I decided I wanted to do the surgery it was only 2 months til I had it.
    I spoke with a nurse and a nutritionist through my insurance (Cigna) several times before & after my surgery.
    I am 13 months out from my surgery. I have lost 65 lbs. I would like to loose 5 more to get me to the top end of a healthy BMI for my height.
    The weight has dropped pretty easily & I know it’s gotta be exercise that takes off the last 5. I also know I would not have lost 65 lbs on my own. Now I just got to keep it off & that scares me
    Good luck in whatever you decide to do.

    toodlerue got a reaction from Frustr8 in Constipation Question   
    I take 400 mg of magnesium citrate 3 times a day & eat 4 prunes. My PCP put me on this after I told him I was taking 2 laxatives, 2 stool softeners, miralax & 4 prunes a day. I have to set a reminder to take the magnesium citrate in the middle of the day. I still need to use an enema about once a week.

    toodlerue got a reaction from Frustr8 in Yeast infection   
    I keep getting a yeast infection or thrush since my RNY a year ago. I take acidophilus twice a day but about every 3 weeks I need to take a Diflucan.
    Anyone else have trouble with too much yeast?
    I don’t eat bread or carbs, I hardly have any sugar.

    toodlerue reacted to Healthy_life2 in I have a "would you rather' question   
    I fall on the side of I’m able to tolerate EVERYTHING, like almost feel normal. No nausea, no dumping, no food stuck, no intolerance. I‘m maintaining and five years out. I know how to keep my weight in range. I indulge within reason and live life. But, I know my weakness and must deal with them.
    Just because we can eat more and tolerate everything does not mean we have to overeat our calories and macros. Make a choice, Work at this life long or don’t be mindful and gain weight. You said “once that’s over am I back to square one with weight loss struggles??” Define what your struggles are and work on them. We are not all doomed to regain Keep an eye on the scale. Don’t let a small gain take off on you. If you gain weight get back on track.
