Had mine March 13th, and am feeling wonderful! I have lost 57 pounds, and feel great. I don't have the aches and pains I was having for so long. How are you doing?

That is so great!!! It is so amazing how different I feel after losing weight!! I can actually run up the steps and not feel like I am going to die!!! I had mine on March 16th and have lost 72 pounds so far. Unfortunately, I broke my foot in May so I haven't been able to workout. Had surgery on it so it has been a long recovery!! Hoping as soon as my 3 year old gets over her cold- I can hit the gym!!! I am loving my new energy levels and all that depression I had from low self esteem is gone!! And- my biggest milestone- I weighed in at 198 a couple days ago!!! Soooooo excited!!!! Good luck on your journey and keep in touch!!!

My bypass took place on March 3 rd and I've lost 90 pounds, but I feel nauseous every day.It's very strange how food has become repugnant.I used to live to eat.

Wow!!! 90 pounds!! Incredible!! I unfortunately have had no nausea, except a few rare occasions when I ate too fast or too much. No dumping syndrome - so life has become very challenging at dinner time. I keep reminding myself how good I feel to keep myself motivated!! I hope you start feeling better soon!!! What does your doctor think is going on?

        I've been a member since 2008, but just now decided to go ahead with surgery. Barely getting started 😁

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
