DS veterans lend me your history



Recommended Posts

Hey ridgerunner, you might like this book, written by a woman who had DS. It's not just a weight loss book, she's a "real" writer too, so she writes a LOT about the psychological changes too....pretty fascinating. I'm listening to it as an audiobook, but here's a link up the book:https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1580054463/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1465437773&sr=8-1π=SY200_QL40&keywords=stranger+here

it's one of the few books where the person had a DS.

To echo @discodawg I don't have any issues either. Not even with constipation. I can eat carbs and not have any issues. I do limit my carbs however just to avoid any excessive weight gain. I will say if I eat something really really greasy/fatty, the bathroom isn't too kind the following morning :rolleyes:. However, I may eat like that 2x a year!!

What I'm learning is it can be managed for some with diet monitoring. Your body will tell you what's good and what's not. I'm 6 years out and enjoying life. Hell some days I don't even realize I have surgery. :D

My friend's Mother In Law told her that the reason she is fat is because she holds in her farts! So fart yourself skinny my friends! [emoji12][emoji12]

Thank you for your help bariatricbutterfly!

Nice to meet another DSer!! They are so few and far between. Your experience is super helpful to me. As it turned out I have to wait until August or September before I can have my surgery so I have ample time to weigh pros and cons of both Sleeve and DS.

Thank you shortycool,

Gratifying to know that a question asked so long ago could help someone later.

By the way, I ended up getting the sadi-s ds and am two weeks postop. Still early yet but so far very happy with my decision.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
