I’m 4 months out and I will never regret it because I am no longer diabetic and it saved my life,, however I will say it isn’t easy at all. It isn’t a quick weight loss fix. Your life will change drastically from a food perspective. I still if I overeat, Eat a “bad” thing, eat to fast or forget and take a drink can have dumping syndrome. It’s miserable. I tend to throw up more than have diarrhea but both are bad. I will never try Chinese food again because I was so sick with dumping. You have to read boxes for fat, sugar and protein content on everything. If you go into it with education and the realization that you won’t ever sit down at a restaurant and eat a meal like everyone else you will be ok. It takes constant work and exercise. For me the absolute worst part was having constipation within the first few weeks after surgery. The surgery wasn’t so bad but the postop diet can be difficult. It is rewarding though. I have lost 78 pounds in 4 months and am healthier than I have been in 30 years. 34 more and I’m at goal. Good luck in your decision.
