After having a double surgery due to them not doing a leak test. I never went back for follow ups. How do I get back on track as far as my food/caloric intake. Does anyone have any suggestions how I get back on track and help with my food. Thanks

Follow the bariataric plate diet. 1/2 of your plate should be Protein. 1/4 veggies. 1/4 grains. Eat protein first. If full, stop. Don't eat more than 1/2 cup at a time. Aim for 600-800 calories. Avoid sugars and starches. Drink your 64 oz of Water each day.

First I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with your surgery. Can you provide a little more detailed on the back end of your story.

How long has it been since you've had your surgery. What type of surgery, how much have you gain back etc.

Most people who have gained weight do a pouch reset, by going back to the basic post op diet.

Honestly? My suggestion would be to get yourself back to your surgeon and follow up visits. If not that surgeon, then find a new team.

Recent research shows that those patients with the best follow up care/compliance have the best long term success with the least regain and complications.

This is too complex of a journey to "wing it" on your own.

Your leak most likely had very little to do with your surgeon and had more to do with your body and health. For whatever reason, you did not seal in an area. Most of us are so metabolically sick going into surgery that we are at greater risk of complication than a so called "healthy normal weight" patient.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
