  1. 3.5 days. I was prescribed a stool softener.

    Average Length of Pre-Op Diet?

    I was only 24 hours of clear liquids. Props to all you doing it for weeks/months at a time! I was required to lose 10% of my body weight prior to surgery. It took me a few months to do that.

    Stricture?

    Unfortunately looks like I’ll be back for another this week. Coupled with a 3 week stall I am no happy RNY camper.

    Stricture?

    I had an endoscopy yesterday and they did see mild stenosis so they dilated a little. The good news is my staples are healed!

    Stricture?

    I had my surgery 6/11/18. I can get liquids down but some soft foods, usually meats, are coming back up.
  6. Has anyone needed to do a dialation after RNY? I am having a lot of trouble with vomiting and my surgeon is recommending endoscopic surgery to look into it.
  7. I am taking bariatric fusion chewables. They are mixed berry flavor. I haven’t had chewable vitamins since I was a kid but I don’t think they are too bad. I take 4 a day though.

    Menstrual Cycle

    I had mine a couple days after surgery. If you are taking anti coagulants, you can expect things to be a lot more watery. I had my second one not too long ago and it was much heavier flow than I had been having. I have an IUD so usually things are about the same. I didn’t think to ask the question pre surgery... but I would say it was a little worse than normal. Maybe due to hormonal changes. Good luck!
  9. How long would you say stagnant weight is a stall? I had a stall for 2 weeks a month ago, but now I have been at the same weight for almost a week. How do you jump start again?

    My medically supervised diet was high fat/ low carb. Basically cut out bread and sugar and focus on protein.... also fun fact that will be your life after surgery too! 🙂

    Help after surgery?

    Hi! I would say if there’s a lot you can do beforehand, such as shopping for foods you can eat, making sure you have plenty of water, vitamins, etc you won’t need too much help. If you are taking the pain medications you can’t drive, but I only did a day of that. That is assuming all goes well. And as the person above noted, the biggest adjustment might be how dang tired you are from healing and eating low calorie. You will also likely have a lifting restriction. In summary, you likely won’t need a lot of help for the first week since you’ll spend most of the time resting. It’s hard to plan to go back to work so soon because everyone reacts differently to the adjustment, but if it was for short periods of time you should be OK.
  12. Hi, I didn’t have comorbidities but I had a BMI over 40. I was advised you didn’t have to have any above 40. Good luck!
  13. I had the exact same problem! I dropped 20 pounds in about 8 days and then stalled for two weeks. I started walking more, moving more in general, and it started dropping again. But it was a frustrating two weeks! (Plus it was 100*+ outside!) it’s a marathon for sure 🙂
  14. I had surgery at 7 AM Monday and was home by 7 PM on Tuesday. I had to consume 48 oz of clear liquids before I was allowed to leave, and needed to be able to walk around without any assistance. Not sure if it makes a difference but I had RNY. Good luck! Pack a book and headphones, as well as a pair of loose fitting shorts and/or a robe.
