  1. Hello, i am almost one yr post op. I had my RNY 11/1/2021, down 142lbs and require iron IV infusion. I am waiting for the insurance approval to get scheduled. Has anyone else done this and how did you feel afterwards? Did you still have to continue taking mutivitamins with iron? I do feel without energy and thought i was doing fine, till my bloodwork never got better Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Surgery is almost 6 months out

    congratulations! yes the hunger will go away. Are you having the sleeve or bypass? I had the bypass on November, and my hunger shut down for 2 weeks. Now i feel "hungry" but not like before, and a protein shake shuts it down. Its all mental and it is easy as you progress, good luck!!! Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Doubling up on Protein

    thats interesting, never thought about that, but the first thing i thought about was, its gonna back you up even faster. My dietician says the high protein does that. Im 8 mos out RNY, and thats my biggest struggle. I take daily stool softener along with laxative 2 times a week. Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app
  5. Hello surgery buddies, for the past 4 weeks when i pee, my peel smells like my protein shakes. I take the fairlife ones. But am drinking my liquids, i dont make it to 64, usually 50 something oz daily. And my nails stopped growing, and now britlle and breaking that it hurts to grab things. My hair loss is better, stopped thinning and got a hair cut last week. I had my RNY Nov 2021 down 107lbs today. Im meeting with my dietician in 2 week in person to shop at the store and read labels properly. Thank you! Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Pre-Op Emotions

    I had SAME thoughts! But you know what? Once you start dropping the pounds fast, it changes your mindset, and its EASY to eat what your dietician recommends. Its easier to eat healthy, and choose better options. Because you will "see" that you do not want to go back to before surgery. And yes, i cheat, had a slice of pizza, these heavy foods, give you stomach pain because of the high carbs/fats and you learn to not crave them and eat much less of junk. I had my RNY on Nov 2021, down 107lbs, and you will love it! Keep us updated! You got this! Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Self pay questions

    if you can and its possible, get a job with your state or county, the government health insurance as an employe will cover it. I work for the state of FL and they covered it all. Sometimes its too expensive outta pocket since alot of preop appts are required. good luck! Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Periods (women only please)

    unfortunately my periods still came on time and strong as always. I had my RNY Nov 1, 2021. I dont take pills, had tubes tide, but im seeing gyno on May 2, for an ablation consultation. I hate periods, always painful. Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Anxiety about calories in pureed food

    im so glad to meet you. I have fear of calories from day one. i am 20 weeks post op and my fear keeps me under 600 cals this day. i told my dietician i cant make my numbers cause i am terrified of weight regain. Today i had one scrambled egg and two bites of mashed red beans and im done for the day. if im hungry i ignore it or drink water till it goes away. im crazy obsessing over failure. Plus i had family members tell me before surgery i would fail. And im gonna show them, not me, this is where my problem comes from. Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    This is all overwhelming

    it is overwhelming. I got cold feet for a month and was depressed. I had my RNY Nov 2021, till this day yes i look at food very diff, i think of fat, carbs, and protein. I get afraid of how it will affect me. But its VERY easy now to say "no" yes, i dont eat bread, pasta, rice. When i tried it, it caused such bad pain. I cant eat what i did before. Yes it changes your mind psychology, but its good Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Post op food- Low carb wraps

    when you try the wraps, pls update. I had my RNY Nov 1, 2021, and yesterday i had a wrap from subway, had it cut in 3 pieces, and all i could eat was one part, because of the pain. I also had on friday 5 pieces of chicken wings and puked it up. I hate the pain and still feel safe with liquids. Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Sleeve or Bypass? Confused

    i had the gastric bypass because of its severity and restrictions. i know two co workers that had the sleeve, regained weight back and have bad GERD. The sleeve seems too easy because of stretching and talking to my co workers. My gastric bypass was done Nov 1, 2021, down 76lbs to date. Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Final Choice

    RNY for me because i know co workers who failed on the sleeve since you still have your full stomach intact, it just stretches out if not careful. Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Secret

    youre right. Only my close family members knew about my RNY, and the day of the procedure my extended cousins from the country and outside came pouring in with questions and i became famous for that week. But then you have those that are jealous and think you're cheating. My sister in law didnt have the nerve to say it to my face but to my mom she did Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app
