  1. Has anyone who healed from gastric bypass , tried to snort cocaine ? Did it cause stomach ulcers? I know it's rough on the digestive system. Did it give you the same rush of dopamine, no appetite, and extra energy as before surgery ? " I am not saying i do or did cocaine" I am just asking questions, to learn, how our body changes after surgery. The coca leaf, is a plant grown in the ground, just like marijuana, people chew on it, in south America for extra energy. The surgeons allow you to use prescribed, amphetamine salts that are crushed not xr. aka adderall . so what's the difference.? I am not talking about people with heart issues, or high blood pressure . Not mixing cocaine with alcohol either , that makes the toxic drug, cocaethylene. I understand cocaine is addictive, and illegal so spare me the addiction transfer speeches. I guess my question is has anyone survived life, after gastric bypass surgery, without dying after a few lines of Blow ? Without stomach ulcers etc? Has anyone tried it and got no dopamine reward ? because of the surgery ? I read a few articles explain something about stomach bile?
  2. Ok , so here the deal ....... I quit Testosterone Replacement Therapy, after 2 years on it. I was not on steroids !!!! Its testosterone replacement therapy, it makes a man at 40 years old, feel great, high sex drive, etc.. It is not pills and 5 different steroids going to you stomach. Its one low dosage intermuscular injection per week. I do not drink alcohol, or smoke nicotine. I quit cold turkey, ["weaned off, TRT with very low dosage weekly shot"], 5 weeks before my successfully , gastric bypass surgery , I am still currently off TRT probably forever. I am 40 years old, ex powerlifter. I am currently 6'3" 299 lbs , i lost 48 lbs as of today in 3 weeks. I only choose gastric bypass surgery because my insurance covered it 100%, i knew it was not reversible, going in. I was told I could continue TRT for life 4 weeks after post op. but now I read No NSAIDS and no Steroids , and they are to opposite things ???? because they can? cause ulcers in the new smaller stomach, and around the staple line. That being, said I am prepared to quit TRT forever !!! But I don't understand why ? It makes no sense. I know for a fact my natural testosterone will come back in a few months, being off TRT, I am not worried about that. *****These are some things that I cant understand and it makes no sense to me , during 4 week post operation. ******* NSAIDS is an appreciation for "NONSTEROIDAL anti-inflammatory drugs" but then it says you CANNOT take Steroids' either ????? Can someone please explain to me how that makes sense ? One is NON STEROIDAL and one is STEROIDALl ?????? Now on to the Clomid brand name drug name is clomiphene , it can be taken by men or women, i have read many posts about women using Clomid post operation to get pregnant !!! there doctors said it was fine but , as I did further research Clomid is a NSAID !!!!????? how does that make sense ??? Clomid taken by men post cycle therapy off TRT will help a man boost testosterone 200% i have done it before in the past it works bringing back natural testosterone levels. The Clomid comes in crushable form pills and liquid too, obviously because , after gastric bypass surgery, your body does not absorb medication like it did before. This is a serious post for people who know what they are talking about please respond with personal stories or any knowledge or insight that you have would be appreciated thank you.
  3. If you don't mind me asking , has anyone had or has had a stomach ulcer ? staple line ulcer ? marginal ulcer ? and if you did have an ulcer at some point. Can you shed some insight and truth on preventive measures, and how to deal with them? You can be honest with me and direct message me about drugs , or alcohol, or weed, or cigarettes or whatever, you took, that caused the ulcers, if you do not want to make it public you can Direct message me , and explain . I would really appreciate any real world facts on this please . thanks so much So far I found out from my dietitian and surgeon : 1, they can heal themselves. 2. there is medication someone can take to heal the ulcer. 3. dying from sepsis is the worst case scenario which is extremely rare according to my doctor and dietitian ?!! thanks so much

    Seeing some changes

    great work
  5. I am a few days away from a month after my gastric bypass surgery , I have been doing everything my surgeon told me to do . I can't believe i lost 65 lbs in 27 days !!! I'm finally feeling happy , lighter, and healthier today. If you are not extremely strong, physically but mostly mentally . This journey is not for you. In my first month I overcame 2 major issues, on top of and including my surgery recovery. Alcohol free " reversing a large fatty liver" and testosterone infections free too I'm proud of myself . natural test levels are not back yet but feeling better everyday. my energy level is increasing everyday. i do 2, 20 minute walks per day. I really have no appetite, but i get my vitamins and protein shakes in everyday. and water . my next diet stage is real soft food again, but i hate the full feeling so i rather just drink fluids. thanks for all the advice on my previous posts i took them with a grain of salt. But everyone helped me find light at the end of the depression tunnel. I will not try anything without dr. approval. Anyone interested in healthy living and fatty liver issues, look up Dr. Berg on youtube and subscribe !!!! he's extremely helpful !!!

    * weight loss * 350 lbs to 285 lbs this morning

    thanks so much , i recommend to everyone don't be in a rush to get back to eating , if you are taking the vitamins, protein and water intake. If your not hungry don't eat. Ride out the no appetite as long as you can . I don't even think about food .

    Gastric Bypass and Ulcer experiences

    Yeah that makes sense because when you start getting symptoms you go to the emergency room when you start throwing up blood or blood in your stool. So you won’t die from sepsis. Thanks I appreciate your responses

    Gastric Bypass and Ulcer experiences

    ok thanks yeah i don't drink alcohol, and yes i know about the addiction transfer. i was just curious where is there scientific fact proving that RNY are more prone to getting ulcers than people with VSG ? like i said above : So far I found out from my dietitian and surgeon about Gastric Bypass Ulcers : 1, they can heal themselves. 2. there is medication someone can take to heal the ulcer. 3. dying from sepsis is the worst case scenario which is extremely rare according to my doctor and dietitian ?!! thanks so much so far no one on here has said they know anyone that has died from an ulcer after gastric bypass ? or sepsis ? I just look at worst case scenarios 1st . actually more people die from drug overdoses and alcohol poisoning after gastric bypass due to the addiction transfer. https://www.bariatric-surgery-source.com/gastric-bypass-surgery-deaths.html

    Psych Meds After Bypass

    i have the answer, relax you will be fine your surgeon will tell you that you can continue using your medication, post operation. BUT ONLY IN THE CRUSHABLE FORM YOU NEED TO MIX IT WITH A SIP OF WATER TO TAKE THEM. example adderall xr and effexor xr are time released you can not take them . you doctor can prescribe you crushable versions of each drug.

    Gastric Bypass and Ulcer experiences

    wow interesting thanks for your experience . can you remember if you did any of those things in your first 30 days after surgery ? I see you also have the sleeve, I had gastric bypass. Apparently according to the "talking heads" and the web md rabbit hole, there is a major difference between the two surgery's as far as ulcers go ? your surgery they claim is not as ulcer prone. ??? obviously I take all the information with a grain of salt. My surgeon is from Russia, and hard to talk to and understand but he's a great surgeon. extremely overly strict. even according to his team, and dietitian agrees. he makes it seem like you are doomed for the rest of your life, you can never do anything, again and if you get an ulcer its a death sentence and you will die of sepsis. emotionally , mentally, and physically i'm going through a hard time figuring out this surgery post op for the rest of my life. thank you for your experiences

    I’m sorry you contracted COVID-19 I hope you’re doing better. When you say your stomach hurt with the steroids, did your surgeon give you a test to see if it was an ulcer?

    Gastric Bypass and Ulcer experiences

    thanks so much, in 6 years with gastric bypass , you have never once had a sip of alcohol ? nicotine ? weed ? Nsaids ? or any drug that can cause an ulcer ? I'm sorry if its a personal question you don't have to answer. I just hear so many conflicting stories, I just trying to understand the truth behind "following the rules" of gastric bypass
  19. If you don't mind me asking , in your 10 years with the sleeve have you ever had a stomach ulcer ? and if you did have an ulcer at some point. 1, they can heal themselves. 2. there is medication someone can take to heal the ulcer. 3. dying from sepsis is the worst case scenario which is extremely rare according to my doctor and dietitian ?!! thanks so much
  20. Has anyone on here continued using TRT after surgery? Did u get bad ulcers ? Did you not ?
  21. haha that's awesome news. you and i are different i was using test replacement so its going to take awhile for it to come back, but i have done it before and i know what to expect. clomid would make the recovery much eaiser. it did before. i forgot to mention i was on trt prescribed by a doctor and closely monitored everything was fine i was bench pressing 405 lbs, but my health now is most important now that I'm 40 years old , i have two young kids i want to see grow up. my dad died at 62 , i refused to let that happen to me.
  22. what ever calories you consume in a day, if you burn what you consumed , and more you will lose weight. if you eat more calories than you burn you will gain weight. I'm not exactly sure if that's exactly correct for gastric bypass surgery like i had. I'm a newbee
  23. thanks sorry i posted the same thing a few times then i found the guys room forum
