Navigating the site



Recommended Posts

Are there any tips for navigating the site. I haven't used it since it was LBT and that seemed to be a lot easier to use.

It was divided into pre , post, eating, complications etc This site doesnt seem to have that sort of functionality , it only seems to be divided into the type of surgery ( unless I'm missing something)

I dont want to have to wade through 100+ pages to be able to find 1 post on the topic I'm looking for.

Don't wade... just use the search function.

Those are 3 very different topics and wouldn't be all in 1 place on any site.

I'm a band to bypass revision myself, if you've got any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them if I can.

They were when it was LBT - there was a forum for each and all the threads were posted under the appropriate forum. I suppose that now its a combined site that functionality has been lost.

As part of my decision making process I want to be able to read up on a range of experiences, good, bad and ugly. I think the better informed a person is the better their success rate.

Thanks for being so helpful. Can you tell me what you eat know, do you struggle with hunger, have you had issues with certain foods etc

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
