6 month check up



Recommended Posts

It has been awhile since I posted. Just had my 6 month check up. Down to 224 :) started at 347 when I began the process. Feeling great, so much energy, off of bp meds.

My appetite is very strange though. Some days I feel like eating often and some days I have to make myself eat. Anyone else feel this way?

Great!. I am at 6 months now and down about 50 pounds. I have not lost anything since Christmas though, eating bad. So my insurance won't cover the 6 month post op follow up so I canceled the visit. Did you do anything for the check up or did they just ask how you feel and bill the insurance company like 200 bucks for a five minute visit?

Also no, I am pretty much hungry all the time, and never not wanting to eat, and I think I am choosing junk foods that I would hope will give the sh !its since I am often backed up more than pre op. Prolly eating 3000 plus calories a day so no wonder the wieght loss has stalled.

They did a bunch of blood work. Made sure to check my height. I guess we can shrink due to surgery :/ at 1 year they will check blood again and said have a bone density test. Don't know the cost of the visit yet, luckily my insurance is pretty good!

Wow!! Most days I barely can eat 800 calories! Can't imagine eating 3000, I'd be so nauseated! Do you still take a Zantac or equivalent? That may help with the hunger.

Great work on 95 pounds lost! How long ago did you complete the surgery? No I have not been taking any heart burn medicine as I have not had heart burn since then. I was unaware that it helped with hunger.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
