    anastomosis erosion

    Marginal ulcers at the gastrojejunal anastomosis are a rare and serious post-operative complication of RNY gastric bypass seen in 0.3 - 1.5% patients. Ulcers are produced as a result of partial erosion of the jejunal or gastric mucosa caused by acidic stomach secretions. This is most commonly due to an incomplete staple line on the gastric pouch or tension placed on the anastomosis, although the exact etiology remains unclear. The incidence of marginal ulcer is said to be exacerbated by risk factors such as smoking, alcohol intake and steroid use. Info from Google.

    Throw Back Thursday

    Congratulations. Looking good!
  11. I ate green beans and sweet peas. All other baby foods had too much sugar. You can puree your own food (anything you like) at home. It's more healthier and cheaper.

    Carbohydrate intake

    At one month out of surgery you should concentrate on your protein intake and water hydration. Bariatric plate consists of 50% protein, 25% carbs and 25% fat. It means if you use 60g protein daily then your carbs should be about 30g and 30g fat.
  15. Wow you just melted down. Amazing transformation. I love your dress.

    Outpatient sleeve

    My VSG was done outpatient surgery in less than 24hrs. Arrived at 7am, stayed overnight and left before 6am next morning.
  21. It is never too old to be healthy, active and happy. I was 62 when i had VSG last November. My mentality of being too old changed very quickly as i started to loose weight. I'm 63 now and wear size 8 destructed jeans! And i feel GOOD!

    This is mine for comparison:
  23. Welcome! I'm glad to know you made this decision. I had my VSG last November at the age of 62. I wish i had it 10yrs ago. Better late than never. Good luck!
