    Thank you so much for sharing. I had my surgery over 3 years ago but I love reading stories about others journey.
    You have done great! Congrats for being in Onederland! I would love to hear about all of the things you can do now!
    Stick to the basics & you will loose the weight. Don’t even think that one bite won’t hurt because before you know it it will be one bite here & there & then you will be back where you started from. You know how to eat properly now so stick with it!

    Wouldn’t it be typical to loose weight after skin removal?

    This is something you should talk to your doctor about. As a nursing couple you need a certain amount of quality calories to maintain breast feeding if you want to continue it. There are also some meds you can take that are safe for the baby that can increase your milk production.
    You could also seek out the help of a lactation consultant One helped me tremendously!
    I wish you the best of luck with continued breast feeding if that’s what you want to do. My youngest & I were a nursing couple for 28 months & it was amazing to provide so much of the “good stuff” for so long.

    I think a lot of that has to do with your insurance company.

    I am down 45-46lbs. We were at the pool yesterday ( shirt still on) and people are saying wow you look good! I really wasn't expecting that yet but I guess it has started. Questions like what are you doing?...Answer---Not eating much and not drinking alcohol which is true. I have the right tool to get this done!

    Yes, you need to take Vitamins after surgery. Taking vitamins isn’t a bad idea for most people.
    I use the PatchMD ones. I take enough pills as it is & I don’t want to take anymore orally. My daughter takes the BariatricPal ones. Others take chewable children’s vitamins (I couldn’t stand those & a kid).
    I had a RNY because I had previous surgery to fix a hiatal hernia that had failed & it was causing me a great deal of acid reflux again.

    Talk with your doctor to pick the best surgery for you!

    Hi Elaine, welcome.
    The doctor is just gonna talk with you about your weight, your dieting history, what the surgery is like, what to expect from the surgery & help you decide which surgery is right for you.
    If you have acid reflux at all you should have a RNY.
    From what I’ve seen in the boards, your age isn’t a concern at all.

    Toodles, Rue

    I’m sorry you are having period problems. They do suck. Like everyone has said, go see a Gyno they know more about women’s body parts then a Baritric surgeon does. It could be something that isn’t related to your surgery at all.
    You are probably have low Iron too from all of your bleeding.
    please let us know what your Gyno finds out.

    toodlerue got a reaction from GreenTealael in Nauseous and frustrated.   
    This is going to sound really weird but try eating a spoonful of raw oatmeal.
    I’m over 2 1/2 years out & I get nauseas quite frequently. I buy Meclizine by the bottle from Amazon to carry with me if I’m not at home. Sometimes I’m so nauseous that I take both!
    I hope you find something!

    I'm so, so sorry for your loss. That has got to be really hard. People seem to really only think about what the mother of the child is going through. The rest of the family goes thought devastating greif & loss too.
    Please find someone to talk to or a support group to help you get throught this.

    Is this what your doc recommended to use? I have never heard of it before. I think most of us just used broths, juices or a Protein Shake.

    I loved reading your story. Thanks for sharing it with us.
    food is always gonna be a struggle, surgery just helps you get to your goal faster. Just like an alcoholic has to remain sober.
    Obesity is a disease. Please follow all of the guidelines that your surgeon gives you!!!
    I wish I would have never let sugar & alcohol back into my life. I am struggling so much right now.

    Best of luck to you.

    Maybe your pouch just isn’t ready for that stage. Or maybe your pouch doesn’t like the brand of Protein you are giving it.
    It’s. Ok to stay in stage 3 for a little bit longer.

    Dust yourself off. Just don’t do it again.
    Continue to weigh your food so you don’t over eat.
