Post opp 6 days....found this forum in a search online. Decided to have bariatric surgery being obese at 54 years of age, with having high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol along with type 2 diabetes, and not wanting to continue with the handful of pills along with the controlling of conditions. My dr’s told me that within 5 years I would be taking insulin.
I met with my wonderful surgeon Dr. Perez in Cancun Mexico, and he highly recommended the mini bypass for me due to my health conditions. During our first  consultation we discussed my previous diet attempts and 2 years ago when I was first diagnosed with diabetes I decided to try the Ketogenic diet prior to starting meds, stayed on in faithfully for a whole year, but was very hard to make it a lifelong commitment, it did for the most part keep my blood sugars in the normal range, and I did manage to loose 20 pounds, but stalled after that....once I did quit the diet, I was eating for the most very healthy, but my sugars were out of control and my meds kept increasing every 3 months with not much success, well needless to say Dr. Perez was disappointied that I would have stayed on that diet for so long, he said I damaged my pancreas badly, so he guaranteed with this mini bypass I won’t need any of my diabetic drugs, so this is the start of my lifelong journey.
