Hey guys I'm really tossing up between regular RNY or MGB I'd love to know honest responses on how life is with the MGB (omega loop)

Do you have to eat slowly small bites?

do you get full easily, has your hunger gone away?

how is your weight loss?

Any reflux issues?

Literally good or bad information I need it all. Thank you.

Like how much did you lose each month?

or by 6 month and then 12 month?

I've been told that RNY and MGB are very similar stat wise?

Hope to hear from everyone :)

I had a sleeve revision to MGB a couple of years ago. Im almost back to my original weight. The reflux has put me in a really bad place and just had 3 tests done to figure out what is going on. I found out today that when my MGB was done that the pouch created was almost the size of a regular stomach, so my best advice is to do your research when it comes to your doctor and know their process and success rate. If they have 98 amazing outcomes and 2 bad....don't dismiss the 2 bad ones....Im one of those and Im miserable.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

      ok, I know it proves me as weird as some of you always thought but this was a fun site to kill time on.

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
