    Sleeve or Bypass?

    There are plenty of alternative meds it's only affecting some SLOW/QUICK RELEASE Medication... I take 9000g of potassium everyday for my life and I've found an alternative just by speaking to local pharmacist!! If you're having surgery you only want to do it once and do it right! If you read you will see so so many ppl being made to go from sleeve to bypass!!
  4. Chinese is full of MSG carbs salt sugar rice lol

    Sleeve or Bypass?

    wow I'm curious how long did it take to lose 167lbs? Well done!
  7. After months of research and discussion I finally decided to tell some family about my plans. I had to explain the surgery in detail to my mum, she is only mid 50s but very old school and doesn't even have a FB lol But after I explained everything she was just so happy. She feels anything I can do to help myself get healthier and live longer is great she fully supports me, I've dealt with my weight about 20 years out of 34 so far! My sister is on the fence she always been healthy fit 5ft10 150lbs, and is gluten free & organic never had any issue with her weight so took a little more discussion but think she's okay now I'm fine anyway I live alone very independent. I'm close with most my family but still choose to do things myself. I feel sad for those who have judgmental families! So that's a happy moment for me just gotta keep waiting, here in Australia we have to wait until we've been a member 12 months before health insurance will pay most of the surgery, I'll still have to kick in about 4K which I'm saving up! Anyway that made my day Thank you for reading. Mike

    The bypass has been around for decades and is the BEST surgery for weight loss and long term management. The surgery has been performed 1000s of times so there's no reason to be worried. Having the VSG is like doing half the surgery why not give yourself the best chance at success with RNY? Why so many people have irrational fear of surgery. Have no surgery die of obesity related issues or take a little risk in order to save your life? No brainer!!

    Tell your husband at his job sites he need enjoy the use of be technology and tools to make his job a little easier? Then why would you not invest in some help and a tool to make life easier in the long run? You still have to put in the effort and everything but surgery is just like a fancy new tool to make things a little better and easier to manage. I don't understand people who talk against surgery, what if his knee went out would you expect him to keep living with the knee or get a new one to me his life better, it's exactly the same thing surgery is new technology and makes your insides work better to fix your body inside and out
  11. What a joke you have to be careful with some therapists who don't understand the weight loss issues. But yes as mentioned above tell them what they want to get the surgery then move on and if later you feel you need help then see a different therapist our goal right now is get this surgery at all costs

    Sleeve or Bypass?

    BYPASS is regarded as the best long term success. Higher weight loss overall. Better control of eating due to dumping meaning eating bad food makes you feel ill the rerouting of your system may seem drastic but there's 1000s of people who have changed their lives and the surgery is proven but still need to be ready to change your whole life and eating better!!
  13. Yeah he was one of the highest weights on the show... Sad but you can't survive obesity forever
