Hi Paula,
My name is Penny and I just turned 66. I will be sleeved in August. I'm going into my 4th month of the 6 mo. Requirements. Have all my clearances done except for the endoscopy. Guess the surgeon is going to go ahead and do a colonoscopy at the same time. Then it's just a matter of getting my last 2 nut and support in. I guess I'm a little nervous cause of age and my health problems, but that's why I'm doing it. Hope everything goes well. Keep us posted and I will check back also. Oh, I am from Pa.

Hope all is going as scheduled. Sorry to be replying so late. I will be 65 in August, had my gastric bypass June 2015, coming up on two years. I have lost 150 lbs and kept it off this second year, Siam very pleased. I will be having a tat Jane 30. I think I'm more nervous about this than my initial surgery, but I have to remember I am so much more healthy than I was at 280lb and technically my body is younger than it was.

Hi out there. It is good to hear from some in my age group. I guess I will still call you all kids as I will be 69 in Oct. Anyway, I am scheduled for an RNY on June 20th. I start my pre-op diet on June 5th. Good luck to all and hope to hear from you as we go through the process of a new lifestyle change.

Hi all over 60ers. I finally had my bypass surgery on the 20th. As a matter of fact, I'm just now getting d/fed from the hospital. Just a quick note about my experience so far. You will have some pain, but bearable . The one thing that no one through your entire pre-op training tells you is that you will have a lot of blood in your stool which is very liquidy. Please don't be alarmed like I was. I know this isn't the best topic to discuss, but I wish someone would have told me. The first 4 times I went there was what I thought was a lot of blood. It finally stopped. You will probably feel bloated . Got to go now . I think I'm getting sprung from the hospital. I will follow up with my progress.

Sorry, it wasn't a tat. Don't know where that came out of my 64 year old brain. Anyway, for my 2 year surgiversary, I had a panniculectomy done last Friday, removal of stomach skin. i am so excited about it. Today is only Tuesday and things are going great!

Sorry about "tat"

Hi out there all you over sixtyers. Today I just started on phase 3 of my program. I had my by-pass done on 6/20/17. Doing well except for a few hick-ups. But today I'm having a scrambled egg and it is heaven, I'm walkin on sun shine. If I could just get past the crushed meds that taste like hell, I'd be almost perfect.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
