I finally figured out why my weight loss has slowed to a near halt- got a letter from my pharmacy that the manufacturer of my thyroid rx has issued a recall because the pills have less medicine in them than they ought to. Combine that with RNY malabsorption, and voila! I've got a follow up with my Dr. tomorrow.
Hi Im new on here I recently had gastric bypass about 6 weeks ago. Overall the surgery was a success however I feel like Im at a weight hick up dr says im doing everything right but I was still expecting to be dropping more weight. And drinking is a little bit of a challenge but im pushing through. I know everything takes time and Im still healing. Anyone having these issues too?
what you’re going through is absolutely normal I cannot stress enough to stay hydrated. It is incredibly important to stay hydrated! The weight loss is going to come off stay hydrated get the protein and stay with the diet that the doctor recommends do not try to skip the steps! just remember you’re in this for the long haul! I am currently six months out from my surgery and I am extremely happy with it just remember you’re doing this for your health and well-being… And you’re not alone… If you have an air bubble that you feel in your chest that is normal… A lot of us have been through it just stay hydrated listen to your doctor follow the steps and be proud of yourself.-holly 6mo post op gastric bypass you got this!
