    60 years young and having surgery

    I'm 65 and just had it done. I was supposed to have it done 10 years ago but two weeks before surgery, while getting all my doctors appointments taken care of, they found breast cancer so had to deal with that. Then I moved and needed a pacemaker, But I feel great. I didn't have one side effect or problem from the surgery or after. I've asked myself if they actually did anything, then I see the incisions. I've waited so long for this that I'm going to do everything I can to be successful and be the active person I am supposed to be.

    COVID and Gym-ing

    Michigan's gyms are closed. i wouldn't go back yet anyway.
  3. I wouldn't think anyone would buy them if the bottles have been opened. Sorry.
  4. I'd be more concerned about covid at a party when I'm pre-op.

    Weight gain.....

    Not everyone is sitting around with nothing to do. Some are trying to work with kids home, there are money issues, maybe aging parents, friends they can't see and yadda yadda. I am watching my two grandchildren( a newborn and a 3 year old) almost full time so my daughter and husband both try and work from home. I have a 30 minute drive each way and come home exhausted only to have a scrambled egg for dinner and collapse on the couch. I don't see any of my friends and still have to shop and do my housework like everyone else. I'm retired and didn't expect to be working full time again with no pay and I worry about everyone. Don't judge people you don't know.

    Gyms are closed here, but I am a member at one and look forward to going back.... when it's safe to do so. Right now I'm doing these and other on line work outs. https://www.youtube.com/c/OFFICIALBOSSFAM/featured I do what I can and feel whatever I do is better than sitting on the couch.

    First Post-Op Visit

    When I had my very first meeting with the surgeon, we talked about the different kinds of surgery, the pros and cons of each and the typical weight loss that could be expected and a time frame. Your doctors never talked about that? I'm so surprised.

    Can fruit cause dumping syndrome??

    I was told no fresh fruit for 8 weeks, but I could have fruit in the little containers which I haven't tried yet.

    Possible Bloodclot?

    I lost a lot of muscle in my legs very quickly after surgery and they were weak. My legs were crampy from not moving around. It took a few weeks to get back to normal. You can work out in a chair if you need to. You should contact your doctor for real medical advice.

    Open incision

    I had the same thing, it looked exactly like that. I sent a photo and then had a video chat with my doctor who said the incision opened, but wasn't infected. It was healing from the inside out so would take awhile . Keep it clean, apply Neosporin and wait. It's been 5 weeks and it's much better but no scab yet. Send this photo to your doctor anyway.
