What The Hell Man



Recommended Posts

Well I have the annoying feeling many times of feeling hungry— as in “omg, I’m gonna die if I don’t eat something soon” hungry— only to eat 3-4 bites (slowly and with intent) and feel as if I just had thanksgiving dinner. Rinse,wash,and repeat 3-4 times more in the day.

Then other days I forget to eat until 2-3 pm with zero hunger urges, but find I can eat over a cup of food and feeling like I could hold more if I tried (always too scared to try though).

I’m pretty sure that if you compared the amount of food I’m taking in between those 2 types of days, the cumulative amount is probably the same. I have no idea why my body/head sends different signals like that.

I had a colleague years ago that had bypass surgery and this is what she used to say: Thanks for your concern, my doctor says I’m healthy - and I also want to thank you for acting like you never even noticed my weight when I was fat. That was very kind and it would be great if you would be just as kind now and continue acting like you don’t notice - and then she would walk away or change the subject.
I wish we hadn’t lost touch. I’d love to have her as a mentor now!

Really good thread and input from everyone.

My coworkers know I am intentionally losing weight but not about the surgery, so they are supportive. Only one person, my nice manicurist, quietly asked if my health was OK. I think it’s more normalized for women to constantly be dieting or trying to lose weight than men.

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
