Is gastric bypass surgery reversible at all??



Recommended Posts

I felt exactly like you for the first two months. I had zero energy. I was off work for six weeks bc I couldn’t stay awake for more than 3 hours at a time. I threw up everything. I told my husband repeatedly it was the biggest mistake ever.

Fast forward and I’m nine months post op and it was the best thing I ever did. Those first two months were a bear for me to figure out. I felt sick all the time and was sad all the time. But I followed my doctor’s plan to the best of my ability, I found a rhythm, I figured out what worked for me. And today I have more energy than I ever imagined possible.

It seems impossible when you’re in the middle of those first months, but it gets so much better as your body and brain adjusts to the change.

Well I think I am more adjusted now if I can call it that way I don’t know, feels like there was not enough job done prior to operation but it’s been done now so have to deal with it... now I am still in hospital and already whole team of people working with me and endocrinologist and psychotherapist and nutritionist... I don’t know exactly why she put me on liquid diet now that I am already so far from my op but I am doing all that they say but still weak and still shaking as my potassium level constantly drops i didn’t had CD before op but they say it is possible that it will come now... I don’t know my thyroid and high BP all is being sorted now so I am just waiting patiently... thank you for encouragement xx

malnutrition is rare if you keep on top of your supplements. You have to take supplements with the sleeve as well. And most RNY'ers don't dump. For those who do, it's easy controlled by limiting your sugar intake (which you should be doing regardless).
feeling tired and weak is pretty common after major surgery - especially after weight loss surgery because you're taking in so few calories the first few weeks. You may have felt the same way for the first month or two had you had the sleeve instead. Just focus on getting in all your Protein and keep well hydrated. Both help.
lastly, "buyer's remorse" is common.. I remember wondering that first month what on Earth I did to myself - but soon I started feeling a lot better and had more energy, and now I'm really grateful that I had it done. So just give it some more time...
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough reply and sharing your experience. It's very encouraging to those of us not having had the procedure yet.

Your body needs to HEAL. The last thing it needs now is the trauma of another surgery. The risks of that would be incredibly high.
In the meantime I would be asking if there was a psychologist that you could be referred to. Speaking to a professional experienced in these matters could be a tremendous help
Excellent suggestion!

      Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.
      As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.
      The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.
      Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.

        Haven't tried these. Sound good! Thanks

        They are good but...1/2 the cookie is a serving. They are BIG but I found that I wanted it ALL!! When we went to Juarez Mexico for hubbys WLS they saved him. At least that is what he thought. LOL

      3. GreenTealael

        Trader Joe's have the single serving size!!!

      12/12I 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 well five days ago 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 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy
