For those of you who say "no" why do you feel that way?

I assume it's because the speed of the rides and gravity, 2 weeks post op you're not healed at all.. Your stomach will be tumbling and turning at high velocity.. It's kind of common sense really

Well... i would say no..... we are not allowed to lift heavy weights or do strenuous exercise for 12 weeks due to the risk of ripping apart your staples... so i would assume with high speed, velocity and pressure it would be riskier.

Your wounds on the outside have not healed in 2 weeks... and it takes a minimum of 6 weeks to start to heal properly on the inside

Wait... i just realised you are a bypass patient... not a sleeve... you have also had your intestines re routed and a pouch created.... that would be even longer!

I couldn't ride comfortably in a car 2 weeks out. It took me about 6 weeks at least to feel like doing activities. But that's how my journey has been. Now at 10 months out of RNY I can do anything!!

You have wounds that are barely healed on the outside, let alone on the inside... you have staples holding your stomach and intestines together... at 2 weeks you can barely eat 'real' food. The doctor's don't release us for heavy lifting/ exertions for 6 weeks so our insides can heal.

Riding a coaster is an exertion.

Don't ride a coaster now.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
