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.

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
