Having gastric bypass on April 7th which is a revision of a reversal of a revision of a Vertical Banded Gastroplasty. This type surgery was before Lap-band availability. Super anxious to begin my new life.

How did u know if u had the stricture

I couldn't keep any food down. Throwing up after every meal. I ended up in the ICU because I was throwing up blood too. After 4 days and 2 different hospitals my surgeon arranged for me to have a scope. My pouch was closed and she couldn't even get the camera through so I had a dilation. If you can feel food get stuck in your chest or throwing up constantly it usually means that there is a stricture. It was a very easy procedure.

I am not able to get foods done but am able to get liquids down but that is about it. Are u able to get things down once u had the procedure dine

it was instant relief. I was put back on liquids for about a week and I have only thrown up twice since then.

Ncbaby how many weeks post op are you? My 2 strictures let me drink some but very little. The liquid would splash back up and almost make me sick.

Well I finally crossed that plateau, have dropped a few more lbs. I think i'm just losing closer to normal now, instead of 5-7 a wk, it's maybe going to be 2-3. I'm ok with that. 40 down in 9.5 wks. I'm very happy with inches lost, that is what continues to change even if the scale hasn't moved. Total inches combined from all over my body, 43! That's exciting. Twice over the last wk I have had people not even recognize me, until right up close and I'm saying "hi" - so and so! That's weird too, but oddly flattering. Nothing fits, even workout clothes are getting too big. I want to buy new stuff so bad, but want to get closer to goal first. Some new things I bought in the beginning are already too big, kind of a waste. Although a great feeling to give things away that are too big rather than too small :)

It is good to see that our group is losing weight after their plateaus. I hope that everything is going well. My plateau lifted almost 2 weeks ago. I have been losing not quite a pound a day. I have lost 11 pounds in 13 days. But I have run into vertigo. My doctor has put me on anti-vertigo meds while she waits to get my blood results back. But she did say it is most likely due to losing weight so quickly combined with my low blood pressure and low heart rate. I have been taking my Vitamins and eating as I should (roughly 900-1200 calories a day with at least 60 grams of protein). I am also getting exercise using Zumba Rush at home or my recent purchase of beginners yoga. I am just hoping that the vertigo goes away soon. I am beginning to think that I lose roughly 15-20 lbs and then hit a plateau so my body catches up before it crashes. Anyone else suffer from almost debilitating dizzy spells?

I have lost 32# but been on a stall for 2 weeks. Been put back on full liquids and still stalled.. 3 scopes this month, 2 strictures and 1 "ops I wasn't supposed to have corn in my soup" I have 40 more lbs to go and wonder if I will lose them. My blood sugar stays to low and it keeps me in the stage where my body won't burn stored fat.. depressing

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...
