I'm not the support group type really, but four days out from DS, it would be helpful to hear about post-op recovery from folks who have been through it. Thanks.

I had a different surgery - RNY. Which is different but there are similarities. For DS's the Vitamin regime is more intensive. So this article gives my experience from RNY. It may be of some help. http://www.breadandbutterscience.com/Surgery.pdf

I'm now 9 days post-op and also would love to hear others experience.

FYI Vombatidae, Pinkfishlilly on YouTube had a revision to the DS about 3/4 years ago and dos a monthly vlog of her journey. I found it to be helpful, but I still have a lot of unanswered questions.

Tiredness. I remember I was exhausted after eating & had to lie down.

Learning my new stomach: what did that cramp mean? Did I really have to 'go'? My surgeon helped a lot on this one. He told me to remember I had 1 stomach for my whole life & now I have a brand new infant's stomach. I had to treat it as such.

Lactose intolerance. Happens to many of us for the first year. I used Lactaid pills, milk & cheese.

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      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
