Just wanted to say hello. A bit on the quiet side so more likely to read than post but had band to bypass revision on the 27th of March. Already my diabetes is gone with no meds blood sugar levels are normal and I've lost 17 pounds(started 275). Feeling great, just can't wait to get my last drain out on the 21st. Just made it to soft foods \o/.

Wow thats great! I also have diabetes. I am having RNY done on April 22nd and presenly I am on the Optifast liquid diet. I had to do it for 4 weeks and I am now on week 3. My insulin has dropped from 96 units at bedtime to 12 units already. I am off one of my pills for my diabetes and I think by time my surgery is here I may be off all of my diabetes meds. I have lost 25lbs and I am so excited to have this done. Good luck :-) Val

Good luck with your surgery! My diabetes was about 40 units daily but I wasn't a good diabetic. Probably should've been higher insulin intake. Luckily my body remembered how to make insulin and I've been diabetes free since 2 days post op. My highest sugar intake now is Greek yogurt and diluted apple juice. My biggest motivations are keeping the diabetes away and shopping. I'm on soft foods now so can't really graze but don't want to even test that habit again. This is a renewal for us, better to keep the old bad habits in the past.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
