    Tried to have 4 strawberries for Breakfast this morning, but i don't think it agreed with me. Not long after i was vomiting white foam 🤢 I felt better about an hour or so later. Maybe it was too soon? I'm almost 3wks out of mini bypass surgery. Anyone else had this? I'm one of those people who absolutely refuses to throw up and will fight it to the end.
  2. I'm 4wks out of a mini bypass. I've noticed I'm having trouble sleeping or staying asleep. I wake up about every 2-3hrs it's not pain related, as I'm pretty much healed now. I'm just very restless. anyone else had the same thing?
  3. I had a mini gastric bypass on Monday 16th March. Had a rough recovery in hospital after the biggest of my port wounds bled Tuesday night. My surgeon cleaned the blood that pooled under the skin and replaced my staples. I'm horribly bruised and swollen. I'm still struggling to lie down, get comfy or sleep and ny clips are itchy as hell. My question is, how normal is it to want to cry your eyes out after? It's not a pain thing. I am sore and uncomfortable but the crying comes on suddenly and is uncontrollable sometimes. It's been every day since i got home Thursday. I get that I've been through a traumatic experience but anyone else find themselves crying like a baby for no reason?

    Oily Stool

    I'm 6wks post op now, and this evening after dinner (i had a few bites of a cheese and spinach omelette cooked with low fat cooking spray not oil), i went to the bathroom and it was mostly oil coming out. Last time I experienced this, i was taking Orlistat weight loss pills I know our digestive tract is completely changed after surgery, but is it normal to be so oily so soon after? Would it have been what i ate? I didn't get dumping, no nausea etc. Just went to the bathroom about 2hrs after eating. Just wondered if anyone else has had the same thing Thanks xx

    Oily Stool

    What would have been the fatty part in an omelette? The cheese? Should i try egg whites only?
  8. Has anyone been diagnosed hypothyroidism and had a gastric bypass? I'm 4wks post op and been so tired and lost a lot less weight than expected. Typical hypothyroidism symptoms. I can't get my blood test done for a while due to COVID-19. Just wondered if one of the internal changes after surgery were thyroid hormone production? Thanks

    How Fast is Fast Track

    Best decision you'll ever make. I'm 5wks post op mini bypass. Couldn't be happier.

    How Fast is Fast Track

    Some people on a bariatric support group I'm in have said fast track is as quick as 2wks.
  11. Instead of it following the natural curve of the stomach, it's more vertical.
  12. I read the surgeon report and it said mine was the lesser curved pouch. Maybe that's common with the MGB?
  13. Mine is 150cm too haven't had any dumping etc yet and I'm 5wks out

    Go to meal

    I have chicken breast strips in the freezer i can cover in paprika and breadcrumbs to cook in the oven when I'm ready for solids 😊
  16. Well done. I'm almost 5wks (16th March) post op from a mini bypass and barely losing weight. It's so depressing and I'm struggling bad I've lost 19lbs since surgery and 129lbs total since January 2019. started January 2019 at 400lbs, 290 at surgery and 271 today.

    I stalled last week and was so disappointed i had a mini tantrum, screaming that it wasn't worth it. Then i found this and it explained so much!
  18. The hardest thing I've had to come to terms with is losing my coping mechanism. I used to eat to feed my emotions but now that's not an option I'm lost. Wish i had a bit more therapy as i did 15wks but it wasn't enough. Speaking to a therapist Tuesday morning 😊 The stalls really demotivated me and disappointed me too. I thought I'd have lost more weight by now 😪
  19. Oh thanks! I was due for a thyroid test in March but had my surgery 16th and COVID-19 shut all blood clinics so need to wait to see if it is. Hopefully get some answers 😊 I was stalled last week and gained 1lb and only lost 1.5lbs this week. It's really getting me down.
  20. Thanks. I just wondered because I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid in February 2019 and found the correct dose for me around June (150mg thyroxine). I'll call my surgeon Monday 😊

    I was going to go for the sleeve but my surgeon recommended the mini bypass. Same recovery time as the sleeve but better long term results. I am 4wks out, started at 290 at 5'3. I'm 271 today i also have hypothyroidism. But at the end of the day, it's upto you. Does your surgeon have a preference?

    I'm considering it too, more to hold in my stomach excess skin 😔 https://shapermint.com/?gclid=CjwKCAjwp-X0BRAFEiwAheRuix0Qs4j5fWacE8F1nmi9Mw9H6f0lx5wWi9_RISyfomNwOA32EkkjXxoCpOkQAvD_BwE

    Trouble Sleeping
