  1. I’m 3 months post op and wondering what prescription medications other people have notified they aren’t getting the full effect of after their surgery? I know I had mine approved for post op but wondering if some of mine may not be absorbing enough or something since I am feeling symptoms of what I would call a reduced dose.

    Eating with bypass vs lapband

    I am about 6 weeks out of my revision from lap band to bypass and from my experience it is way different. It is a whole new way of learning to eat and seeing what you can tolerate and what you cannot. I do not get the 'full' feeling like I did with the band and I am bummed about that. I am learning that I am getting a new 'full' feeling that I am getting used to that has started to help me now that I have experienced it. I don't know if I have had dumping or not. I have had frequent diarrhea getting used to foods but not sure its technically dumping. I haven't had it in connection with consuming sugar or the sweaty, racing heart thing. I have started to lose weight and I am happy about that part but definitely a different process than the band. Good Luck to you!

    Am I really gonna lose weight?

    I had the lapband in 2009 and due to complications had to get it removed and got the bypass all fairly quickly and I had the revision on 12/15. I struggled with post op diet until this week when I started to eat some puréed foods but I am just not losing weight. Emotionally really frustrating that I went through all this and not seeing results.
  4. I’m struggling feeling like this isn’t going to work and not strong enough to do this! Please help!

    Nausea after bypass??

    I am almost 4 weeks post op and have never had nausea until last couple days. Is that weird? It’s not while I’m eating or shortly before or after - could it be dehydration?
  6. I’m about three weeks out and totally had the emotional roller coaster several times so far. Still not sure what I’ve done but here I am! Hang in there dear - sounds like the peaks get easier!
