    toodlerue got a reaction from Frustr8 in Problems with gas   
    I had A RNY in May. I don’t have problems with gas at all. I’m constipated most of the time & I’ve read that that’s normal too.
    Everyone is different after surgery so who knows what your body will do.

    Talk to the supervisor who’s name you have! Something isn’t right. I’m don’t think anything is fishy, i just think no one knows what they are talking about!

    I feel the same way, I take A stool softener every night, use Miralax or prune juice every couple of days. I buy the enemas by the 6 pack!
    Try to drink more Water.
    I’m almost 2 months out.

    I have Slept with a Cpap for over 12 years. Put it on every night. It takes some getting use to, but I find that most people aren’t persistent & give up on it to easily & too soon.

    toodlerue got a reaction from Frustr8 in Let's hear some normal poop stories   
    I’m constipated all the time! That’s my new normal. I’m only 6 weeks out so I’m not eating a variety of foods yet, I’m too scared to do that. I just keep taking stool softeners & Miralax which takes a couple of days to work.

    toodlerue got a reaction from Jpsl1028 in Some questions   
    When my primary 1st suggested WLS he put a notation of all the things that would justify me having WLS in my chart. sleep apnea (I have used a clap for 13 years), back pain, joint pain, depression, GERD, trouble walking. So when insurance asked he already had all the bases covered.
    I saw him this week. He was very informative & wants to see me a month after my surgery.


    Toodles,

    toodlerue got a reaction from Saddy in I’m getting a bypass despite the fact I have a sleeve done   
    I too have an uncontrollable sweet tooth. I had a RNY a month ago. I constantly have to over come the temptation to not eat sugar!
    I have to to remind myself “Nothing tastes as good as being skinny feels!” It’s my new mantra.
    I’m just tired of being chubby. I can feel my body getting worse from extra weight. I want to feel better, I wanna get out and do things! I’m tired of sitting on the couch!
    I guess you have to get to that point yourself & decide what is important to you. Maybe your not ready to make that big of a change.

    I was diabetic before surgery also, at one point in time my A1C was over 11. I was taking the following every day to control it;
    4 Metformin (pills)
    120 units of Lantis (2injections)
    3 injections of Novalog
    Victoza injection
    A total of 6 injections a day before surgery. As of now the only medication I take for the diabetes is one injection of 25 units of lantis before bed (and I am slowly decreasing that).
    Getting rid of the diabetes was my primary goal of having the surgery. The surgery also cured my high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I am off all prescription medication now except the 1 small injection a day of lantis (insulin).

    I have been drinking the Premier Protein drinks. You can get them at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club. They have a variety of flavors, all of which are yummy. They are also pre-made, which is really convenient.

    I was on Zoloft before and after surgery and didn't have any issues. I no longer take it. I switched to ccbd oil.

    Mine looks a little worse every time I look in the mirror. Also, last weekend I tried on a pair of jeans that fit just fine at the waist when I was standing, but as soon as I sat down, I had two hideous-looking pouches above and below my pants! I'll be curious to see where I'm at come December 2019.

    After surgery i got constipation and got hemeroids. I used the well known hemeroid creams, but they would just relieve the symptoms, i could still feel the bumps.
    I was using CBD cream for my knees, and just tried it for the hemeroids. Within 3 days they disappeared and all the pain was gone! So freaking happy that stuff is gone. Try it!

    I had my surgery May 16th. I lost 11 pounds at my 2 week appointment. I had a RNY to fix my Fundalupacation that had come undone, repair my hiatal hernia that was way worse then he thought. At the 2 week appointment he told me that he didn’t use as much intestine as a regular RNY and my stomach is bigger that a true RNY! Now I’m mad! I go through all of this and I might not loose as much weight! But I’m still determined to get to my goal weigh!

    I bought a $6 sale formal dress at forever 21 thinking I'll be able to fit it next year or give it away as a gift because it's a size large, tried it on and viola! I'm a size large in a store that runs notoriously small. Shook.

    Four and a half months out from surgery... This morning, I noticed something weird above my thigh getting out of the shower. Kind of a lump, it looked like.
    I was worried for a minute then I noticed it was on the other side, too. It was my hip bone. It has never been visible before in my entire adult life.
