I had a band installed back in 2011. Lost about 70ish from that but then things just kinda... stopped. Revised to the Bypass March 21st and I'm down 58lbs or so since March 2nd, 117ish total.

Had bypass 6 months ago! Down almost 90 lbs and about 10-15 lbs from goal.

I had no issues thankfully- some gas pain the first few days (waking up was a bit painful with gas in chest) but that’s about it!

Feel free to ask anything !

Wow, that's amazing losing that much weight, I'm glad you were able to get the bypass and benefit from it. "58lbs" is a lot of weight loss, especially from March till now. congrats on the successful weight loss!!!!!

Wow, 90lbs check you out and your almost at your goal weight, I bet your super proud of yourself (you should be). I legit can't wait till I get to that point in my journey. I haven't set a goal weight for myself yet.... I hear people complain mostly about the gas after surgery, I brought gas x, strips and pills. So hopefully I will not get as gassy (fingers crossed)..... congrats on being so close to your goal weight... how will you Celebrate this success?

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
