Help I'm not losing weight at all!!!!!!



Recommended Posts

I had my plication surgery March 8 and have only lost 5lbs. My surgeon didn't do the double fold, just once. I did the liquid diet for 2 weeks and was told I could resume slowly. I got full on the beginning, but now I feel like I can eat as much as I did before the surgery. They didn't give me a meal plan or instructions on eating, just a condensed form from sugar busters way of eating. The incisions are still in tact. My doctor said I need to give it some time. Does anyone have suggestions on how to help me find some success or a eating plan?

I don't have any answers as I am researching the application vs sleeve. It sounds like a logical procedure but I'm concerned about possibly poor weight losses. I'm looking at Tijuana. Some very good surgeons there. I'm interested in application because I read that GERD improves

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
