Having the reversal

Hello everyone! Well very excited to tell you the surgery went very well. Tomorrow I will be two weeks post op and have been mostly on a liquid diet, but the small things I have eaten such as pudding and oatmeal have stayed down with no problem. I am having no abdominal pain other then the minor irritation from the incisions no worries there.

I am actually already feeling the results of having the large intestine back in tact and feeling the nourishment from the food I am ingesting. I am so happy at this point in time. I have now lost exactly 200lbs so I am over 40lbs past where I should have stopped. I obviously do not want to gain all my weight back but do look forward to at least being able to keep things down, in and get the benefit of my food intake whether or not I gain some back or not. I lost from a size 32/34 to currently a size 10. At over 5'9 and large framed that was a lot for the body to take in a year and a half.

I will let everyone know how it continues to go, but I do want to say thank you so much for all the kind words of support, and for those that have no other solution for severe bypass issues I am up till this point, proof that there maybe a solution albeit it may have to be a reversal.

I am so happy to hear this - CONGRATS!

That's great that you're feeling so well. After having my band removed I remember how great it was to eat without pain or restriction.

Thank you Orchid just out of my mind with joy over not feeling sick, throwing up or in pain. I had almost forgotten what it felt like to feel healthy. :D

Frustr8 thank you very much. I hope all goes well as it has for so many. We started out at about the same weight. I was 362 and then my last weight after the reversal was 162. I am confident you will do fine. If for some reason you need to talk, just let me know. I think I went through the full range with the surgery of the good, the bad and the ugly.

I most certainly will. I am finding it difficult to eat again like normal. I catch myself stopping before I finish my meal, simply because I still view my stomach as small. This whole process has been crazy mentally, and when I eat I sit and wait for the nausea to start or the pain and it takes a minute for me to realize I can actually hold the food in, and it is not going to come up. My husband tells me you are okay, go ahead and eat, I love he is so supportive and can tell that I hesitate.

The upside is that eating the smaller amounts, as long as I am getting enough nutrition, is okay and I want to make sure that I build on that healthy habit. We went to a fast food place yesterday and I was able to eat 2/3 of the sandwich, a few curly fries, and then just stopped all of a sudden. My husband asked me what was wrong, I said nothing I am simply satisfied and don't feel the need to finish, just because it is there. His response good I am still hungry and will eat it lol. He has had to go on a diet, as he was always finishing my food, and it caught up with him.

Hopefully I will continue to maintain although I am actually hoping to gain some back. I lost 40 more lbs than I was supposed to.
