December Bypass Twin?

Hi everyone! Happy holidays!

I had my RNY on December 17th as well. Threw in a large hiatal hernia repair to boot. Went in at noon on Monday and released at 11am Wednesday. Not bad. Came home off my blood pressure meds which was one of my reasons for doing the procedure in the first place.

I’ve had quite a good amount of pain that I’m attributing to the hernia repair more than the RNY. Protein shakes... can’t choke them down so I’m drinking Isopure like it’s my job. Whipped cottage cheese and unsweetened applesauce are my jam!

I’m really excited to make this tool work for me. This is likely the best decision I’ve ever made for myself. Glad to have all of you on this same crazy ride with me!

Hi! I had RNY on December 18th. Also had huge hiatal hernia repair. Was in hospital 3 nights. Had enormous amount of pain in left shoulder. Walking has helped tremendously! So happy to be in this group. My doctor seems rather progressive with the diet. Puréed starting week 2. Couldn’t believe I was able to eat so soon but everything is great! Down 17 lbs already. Good luck to you and God’s speed!

How did it go and how are you doing! I had gastric bypass December 18th

Everything went well. The surgeon said my liver was perfect and I went home the day after surgery. I went back to work a week after surgery and everything seems to be progressing along nicely. I hope all is well with your recovery.

Back to work after one week? Wow! That’s amazing! I can’t navigate the grocery store alone yet! Good for you! I’m a nurse, so it’s out of work for 6 weeks for me! No lifting/moving those patients my size😊

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      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.
