I feel the same mc2017!

My surgery was changed from August 27th to September 5th because of the OR getting some changes. I will be having mine with Dr. Taylor at Barix Clinics of Michigan in Ypsilanti. This has been a long process that started in January 2018 because I had stage 4 osteoarthritis in my right hip. I have since had a total hip replacement but my left hip has stage 2 osteoarthritis. At 48, I am too young to feel this damn old. My orthopedic surgeon assures me that losing the extra weight will get me back to my dancing days with the Hubby. Thankfully, Hubby understands that I am doing this to get back to my old self and to be able to keep up with him.

Congratulations on your future RnY, I am happy to find a bypass surgery twin , the other 3 I know of are all sleeve candidates. I will have mine at Ohio State University with Dr Bradley J Needleman. I have been work8ng towards mine since August 2015, long twisted story, but it will be finally finished and then I can move forward into my future life with an effective helper. I have been so sick and tired of being sick and and tired. I fear surgery much less than continuing as I am.

Hi everyone. So glad people answered!! It is great to have support and go through it together at the same stages. I am in Australia so my hospital and surgeon won't mean anything! I had a sleeve done jan 2015. Not really a problem till july 2017 when i started to get nausea and reflux. I ate more fatty foods and junk so started to gain weight. When i went to the surgeon last month and had a ct and gastroscopy...it showed i have gastritis and a kink in my sleeve. So on 19th sept (aussie time) i am having surgery to remove the kink and convert to bypass. Am currently eating some foods i like that i won't be able to eat afterwards and on 5th sept start my 2 week pre op diet. Feeling impatient but nervous at the same rime

@ Miss Poodle, the same day you start your presurgery preparation I shall be having my RnY surgery. Any prayers and Good Wishes directed at me on that day I shall be grateful for. This is a brave new world we will be entering, but one I have been yearning for.

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
