Wow. Sorry to hear that the surgery was cause for a break-up. It can definitely put some strain on relationships. But good for you on going through with it. I was a nervous wreck in the final week as well, but so happy I did it. Lot of support and info on here so welcome to the club. Good luck to you on your journey!

Greetings from snowy Ohio. I feel you're making a good step for your future health, if she couldn't support in this she wasn't the right person to share a future with. I know my late husband would have been the same way, sad isn't it? I'm going thru RnY in a few months and I'm probably old enough to be your grandmother. Shoot there are days I think I could be Methuselah s granny dragging this fat body around but I'm gonna have a good tool to,help me continue on living. Let us all know how your surgery goes you've got a worldwide Bariatric family here and we groove on success.

Weight issues can really mess with relationships. My ex had WLS and lost lots of weight. Then she pressured me to have WLS too -- I resisted and she left me for another guy. After I got over the shock of the divorce I did have the surgery.

Its amazing how differently people treat you when you're not fat. When you're dating this is an issue since in the back of your mind there's alway the realization that the person who's sitting across the table from you smiling today may not have given you the time of day last year.

Anyway, best of luck with your surgery. I don't have any regrets. Hopefully you won't either.

I’m a 10 year bariatric gastric bypass member and devoiced due to my ex being very insecure by my weight loss; I have stayed my BMI for 10 years ( I weighed 400lbs) but having a life with a companion that understands the relationship with bariatric is like finding gold. Good luck hang in there!

It’s good you waited till you were ready and not when she was ready. It should always be for you.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
