  1. It is well documented that Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery drastically alters the fecal microbiome, but data are sparse on temporal and spatial microbiome and metabolome changes, especially in human populations. We characterized the structure and function (through metabolites) of the microbial communities in the gut lumen and structure of microbial communities on mucosal surfaces in nine morbidly obese individuals before, 6 months, and 12 months after RYGB surgery. Moreover, using a comprehensive multi-omic approach, we compared this longitudinal cohort to a previously studied cross-sectional cohort (n = 24). In addition to the expected weight reduction and improvement in obesity-related comorbidities after RYGB surgery, we observed that the impact of surgery was much greater on fecal communities in comparison to mucosal ones. The changes in the fecal microbiome were linked to increased concentrations of branched-chain fatty acids and an overall decrease in secondary bile acid concentrations. The microbiome and metabolome data sets for this longitudinal cohort strengthen our understanding of the persistent impact of RYGB on the gut microbiome and its metabolism. Our findings highlight the importance of changes in mucosal and fecal microbiomes after RYGB surgery. The spatial modifications in the microbiome after RYGB surgery corresponded to persistent changes in fecal fermentation and bile acid metabolism, both of which are associated with improved metabolic outcomes.
  2. Well how many calories do you think you're eating? But you do have to train yourself to slow down... It took me a while but after throwing up a bunch of times I had to learn...

    How to tell kids

    Personally I think it's good to be honest and open communication with your children just explain it so they understand there's nothing to worry about.. Mummy is just going to get healthier

    Changing facilities

    Pretty sure each surgeon has their own rules and guidelines they need you to follow even here in Australia I rang a few different surgeons and each one has their own set of rules...
  6. I've watched documentaries where they are treating serious bowel issues with fecal transplant in humans and it has helped... I feel the bypass has totally changed my metabolism and the way my body now processes food like now I'm in maintenance in eating more calories and still staying the same weight where before surgery I would put on weight so easily... It's like I have a thin persons body and mind now

    It is still major surgery and your stomach/bypass will be new so I suggest starting slowly on a liquid diet for even a week plz don't rush into solids
