  1. I have aetna EPO. I wonder if I qualify for a revision. Do you have a diagnosis code. Mitsy
  2. Hello I hope you are doing. Congratulations on the revision of the Gastric Bypass. If you would not mind sharing the name of the surgeon who conducted your revision in case I experience the same issue and may need to seek further medical support. Are you in NYC? Misty

    Hi Welcome to the family. I also had the lapband the gastric bypass. It will last 3 to 4 weeks before you feel better. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using BariatricPal mobile app
  6. delphina can you share your surgeon if you are in nyc. Thanks Missy
  7. Hi delphina I cannot believe that after going through a gastric bypass does that mean that I may have to go through a revision? It is sad that through all the challenges with our weight we still have to battle with weight gain. I too have beem gaining weight. I have done everything to monitor my food intake and still see the dial go up and up. Missy
  8. I have been 4 years post op with my gastric bypass underwent in 2016. Since this global pandemic I have gained weight due to the ability of working from home, stress, fear and the lack of exercise. I am slowly trying to fight against the challenges now the past 2 weeks such as discipline myself again to healthy eating, Protein Shakes, Water intake and going to the gym 3 x a week. What exercise recommendations can you shed on me which will allow me to burn fat most, lose weight and allow me to meet my goal. I am so close I can taste it.

    Hello I know the feeling, at times my apetite is bigger than other days. I always try my best to remain mondful & positive. The only issue I have is that my stomach and brain does not communicate. I eat based on sight and time. So what I see I eat. I keep air popped popcorn in the house, fruits, and I meal prep. Alongside to my protein shakes Always treat each day individually. If you fail one day, know your mistakes dust yourself off and do better the next day. Only you can deal with these challenges. I am here for you. Missy
  12. Hi abbie Let me start by saying do not have regrets nor have discouragement. U can tweek the eating habits make a reversal and come out winning. Do you write down what you eat everyday & monitor your calorie? Allow me to share, i use carb manager. It is awesome. You can upload the app in your phone. Possibly include some walking? In addition, are you including protein in your diet? Sent from my SM-G960U1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    help- Eating too much,

    Hi Marcie First we have to get to the bottom of why you feel it was a waste of time? What is causing you to remain focused on your health and avoid the backslide. Missy
  14. Rachel You will eventually receive a call within 2 to 3 weeks. God willing you will be going for surgery towards the end of October unless if your insurance company requires other guidances in effort to rule out that the surgery is medically necessary. What insurance do you have? What state? Missy

    Hello Hope all is well. What type of surgery did you get? How many months post op are you?
  16. Hi Rachel I can relate with anxiety and depresiion as a Functional individual. One thing that I can exprezs which i always remind myself each and everyday is that no matter what you do, what you say never have regrets. For the most time through the WLS journey i never regretted anything despite of any challenges. Missy

    I am home

    I feel great though i have not met my goal which was primarily my fault. I stalled by eating incorrectly snacking, not drinking protein. But I have been disxoplined now. Im going to the gym, taking my vitamins, drinking my water, doing my shakes. I have no regrets at all. I underwent the first WLS in 2009 and it was the lapband. I loss the largest bulk of my weight from 2009 through 2015. Though i faced a plateau for one year due to an erosion of my stomach i gained some weight back but i still had no regrets. If i ever need to reconsider i would do it again But this time around I realized that i need discipline so i put myselt on Intermittent fasting.

    Its important that you take your pain meds, walk to keep the circulation throughout your body. Its ok not to go outdoors but at least walk around the house slowly. Missy Sent from my SM-G960U1 using BariatricPal mobile app
