Good luck! I had RNY at 47 and it made me feel like I was in my 20’s again. You may not feel like your 20’s but your energy level will most likely shoot us and quality of life will probably dramatically change.

I wish I had someone that had YEARS out before I got the surgery. Although It helped me in a multitude of ways it also hindered me in a lot of reasons. I think they should of had way more in the way of mental health.

Their checkup before surgery was a joke...they did not prepare you in any way of what you would be going through mentally.

Good Morning, I kind of knew what I would go through. Three of my family members have had surgery. I have probably lost about 60 pounds so far. I am moving along a lot slower than my girls.I truly believe my stomach is larger than an egg! I had gastric bypass "laparoscopic".I am grateful that my diabetics and blood pressure have been under control. I do find myself getting very sad about muscle loss.I have extreme back issues that limit my ability to exercise.I can already see the loss of breast. lol "I never had big ones" but now forget what I"m thinking.
So I find myself getting very weirded out about my body.I'm sure my insurance won't cover any procedures, other people, don;t understand . They think it is better than being fat.

O well, I have to get off the pity pot and be grateful for all the blessing that has come along with the surgery. I'll just tuck it in" literally"lol and move forward.

Have a wonderful day

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
