Recommended Posts

2.5 months no problems than a annoying cramp. I have no insurance either.

I know people think you are trying to psych yourself out but my surgery is 2/13 and I have a nervous breakdown every night over potential complications. I have 2 little kids (5 and 3) and the idea of leaving them is unimaginable and stressful. Totally an understandable concern. I am not worried as much about complications that can be fix but instead of those that can’t that lead to death and those people aren’t here to report their outcome.

that happens to pretty much no one. The mortality rate on gastric bypass is 0.3%. That means you have a 99.7% chance of pulling through just fine. Your odds of survival are better with bypass than they would be with hip replacement surgery.

people have died from having their tonsils out. But seriously, how many people are we talking about? Same with gastric bypass. It's one of the safest surgeries out there. I know it's human nature to worry about surgeries, but you are going to be just fine.

Edited to add that you are more likely to die from obesity-related issues than you are from gastric bypass surgery.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
