I have a rare auto immune disorder ( about 200,000 cases, extremely rare in white women, can effect any organ in the body, currently effects my heart, sleep, and lungs) I have 2 lung masses, I see cardiology, pulmonary, and oncology. I have svt on top of that and had an ablation in hopes that it will keep me from getting a pacemaker (so far, my episodes have decreased), even with all this, I still feel better then I have in the last 7 years. Acid reflux got really bad after the sleeve but I was bypassed 3 months ago and that resolved completely. It was easily the best choice I made

I had herniated my L5/S1 disc in the fall of 2015 and finally had surgery to repair it in Spring 2016.
My recovery was absolute hell.
While I was able to walk, it certainly was not without pain. While the surgery helped the numbness in my leg, my back felt worse>

I had an endless cycle happening.......my weight was not helping with the back pain and the back pain was not helping in my effort to lose weight.

After the 1st month of having Gastric Bypass, I was able to get out of bed without having to roll out of bed, I was able to walk without pain and then I started to TRULY exercise again.

I developed 2 kidney stones at 5 months post op...one was stuck in the ureter and was excruciatingly painful!! Had emergency surgery to remove it, but the other stone is still in the kidney. Got a stent placed for 11 days then that was removed in follow up surgery. It's been 5.5 months since surgery and no more problems so far. No one (surgeon, nutritionist, etc) told me that kidney stones were common after weight loss surgery...Mr. Google told me that, but too late.

Now I try to drink alot of fluids and avoid stone-making foods.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
