    Zahara98 got a reaction from Ruth9454 in Anyone with PCOS not lose weight after surgery   
    I had RNY on March 18 and have PCOS. I was scared of it not working as well. So far I am down 35 lbs from my highest weight at the start of my preop diet. I feel it is slower than others, but am still making progress, which is hopeful. However, I have gained and lost these same 40 lbs for years and won’t believe anything is different until I’m below 200.

    I just had my 2nd follow up this week, does anyone else find it so frustrating that the nutritionists and doctors lump you into the group of people that eat super unhealthy and eat way to much when honestly, I probably know more about food composition than the nutritionist. I feel I don’t belong because I dieted, hard, for YEARS, without results. But everyone assumes you eat way too much because of the excess weight. I am an exercise junky, worked out all the time, ate little, avoided carbs, and still didn’t lose. I know surgery was the ONLY thing that might help. I pray it continues to work for all of us!

    March 4th was the start of my pre-op diet, weighed in at 250 that day. March 18th was my surgery date, 247 that day. May 4th I weighed 218, so 32 lbs total and 29 lbs from surgery. My app tells me I’m averaging .5 lbs a day. I’m pretty happy with it since nothing seemed to work at all before surgery!

    Good luck to you! I had surgery on a Monday, worked some from the hospital room Tuesday and went back full days to my desk job on Thursday. I didn’t take any pain meds, either. Unless you have complications, I agree with the others that you should do great!

    Congrats to all the Marcher’s on your losses! I am 4.5 weeks post op, but haven’t weighed since my follow up April 9th. I was about 22 lbs down then. I’m back in the gym and back running again, so definitely feeling great!

    Oh I am so happy I found this thread! Part of the reason I had WLS is because I couldn’t lose on my own any longer but I am a die hard runner and want to race and be competitive! I have been a runner since my teenage years. Am starting back to running again after my surgery - just released to full activity on the 15th. Have been really wondering how I would hydrate and have enough energy to race, but great suggestions so far! Love finding other runners here. I’m so looking forward to feeling like I fit in with runners!

    Hi everyone - my surgery was on 3/18. Wanted to join the March group for some support! I wish I would have joined before my surgery as I was absolutely petrified of having surgery and was 2nd guessing the surgery I chose, but glad that part is behind me and just looking forward to the future!
