Hello Minnesota! Anyone around these days?

I had my RNY last week (October 18, 2016) at mayo Clinic. Surgery went really well and I'm feeling pretty good! I started pureed foods Tuesday and am trying to learn when I'm full and when I'm hungry. It's kind of odd :-) So far I've only tried scrambled eggs and cottage cheese. I haven't ventured too far from that. I'd like to try refried Beans. That sounds kind of good to me.

Love to hear from others and how they are doing. When did you have your surgery, where, what are your challenges, what have your successes been and, of course, how much have you lost along with your height.

I'm 9 weeks post and am doing great! Being nervous is pretty normal. Just get checked in and let the medical staff take care of you. You'll do great, I'm sure! Where are you having your surgery done? All the best! Let us know how you're doing.

Hi I'm in Woodbury! I have BCBS FEP and I believe the preferred Center of Excellence is mayo Clinic. I had started at my primary back in August and they sent a referral to Mayo, but when the center called I was in the midst of my husbands' cancer treatment and felt it was just too much for our family to take on an elective surgery... now that my husband had his RP and is on his road to healing I figured it was time to look back into my own journey. I plan to call Mayo today. I sent an email back on 12/15 and haven't heard from them yet... I just have to go for it. Any insight into the program would be greatly appreciated!

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

        I’m new but I wish you luck in getting back on track. Maybe see a nutritionalist first.
