    I never even thought about that, my current protein is Fairlife so, it could be a good possibility! I've never tried the almond/dairy alternative. Thank you for your insight!

    Ooh, I didn't think of that. I do enjoy a sugar free pudding at night but not every day. I will start watching what exactly I'm eating. Thank you!

    Sorry if this question has already been asked, but is anyone else experiencing bloating after surgery. I mean, I'm nearly a month out and every morning I wake up bloated; it will dissipate after exercise and come back right before bed 😞 It is driving me crazy! Is this normal? What can I do!!! I did NOT experience this with the sleeve. 😩

    @Nicole T and I get our surgery times at 2 PM! I've also been doing the "anxious" cleaning. My house never looked so good! The nerves are starting to truly set in!

    Does anyone have any recommendations on a chewable/ melt away vitamin that isn't incredibly vomit inducing? Can't swallow a pill until 30 days after surgery and I'm nervous. My first round with a chewable was not good 🤢

    If you still a recommendation, Bariatric Vitamins from ProCare are wonderful!

    Hi!!! I'm from PA! and I'm getting revision to bypass due to GERD. Thank you so much! I'm PENDED to get a surgery date today!!!!

    Hello! New here

    Best of luck to you! My tip is to ask A LOT of questions. I was afraid to at first, and I regret that. Now I'm suffering horrible GERD and looking to revision from sleeve to bypass as a self-pay patient. 😪 In the end, you will know what is right for you!!! I look forward to your journey!!!
  15. I hope you are doing well! I am also getting revision due to GERD. I have found ZERO relief. Life is miserable.

    Hoping and praying to FINALLY get my surgery date for April. A lot of push back since COVID struck up again. Fingers crossed. Congratulations to those who have a date!!! Looking forward to all your journeys!
  17. Oh my word! I'm so sorry to hear you are going through that. I hope it passes for you too. Thank you for your insight!! I am still very thankful for the second chance at this wl life but still a bit scared.

    So glad to hear you are doing well! Keep kicking butt! Right now due to COVID, I still don't have a surgery date due to my surgeon having to be on call, however they did advise a possible April date, so I am still awaiting to hear.

    3 weeks until Surgery!

    Congratulations! Looking forward to following your journey! You came to a wonderful place of resources and great support!!!!
  20. I am in the process of getting a surgery date for revision, sleeve to bypass - & this time around I feel a bit more scared than I did previously with my first surgery. I am worried of complications after surgery, did anyone run into any crazy complications after their revision?

    Any Regrets?

    1. No, I can definitely say I feel healthier and though I have experienced some regain, my body has changed for the good. 2. Yes 100% 3. I was miserable for about 8 months after surgery because my body decided to hate everything I put in it, and for awhile there I was surely tested HOWEVER, I had a great team with my bariatric doctor whom helped me through. Of course this a person by person basis but something that drove me close to regret. 4. I was sleeved in 2015. I WISH they would have told me about the possibility of getting severe GERD and hernias. That conversation wasn't thoroughly discussed and as it may be my fault, I'm now finding myself needing revision which health insurance that won't cover leaving me to fund my revision on my own. Life is a little miserable right now because nothing seems to help but again, this is all a person by person basis. I wish I would have pushed for RNY at the beginning but I still don't regret getting WLS. Best of luck to you!

    Issues after surgery! Kinda regretting it

    Reading your post is heartbreaking, so sorry you are going through that! Have things started to ease? Did your surgeon contact you?
