Picture of my stomach after Roux-en-y



Recommended Posts

AfterbThe 1st surgery, the doctor concluded that I had blockage inside my small intestine so they had to open my stomach to clear it. They had to insert 2 tubes and over 30 staples. After 1 week and 2 days of misery in the ICU and normal room I'm out of the hospital. Currently on stage 2, full liquid diet and lost 26LBS since the beginning of my surgery (March 16th). I get the staples taken out on the 7th and the last tube gets taken out early next month.

So, this has not at all been an easy journey for me. I've been very weak and I feel dehydrated even tho I drink clear liquid alot!

I'm going to my 2nd infusion Monday to help with my dehydration.

If I could say I regret the surgery, I would say absolutely. How ever I've been very over weight and no matter the diet I couldn't loose anything, especially having the medical problems I suffer with.

I wish you all good luck, I know I need it. Keep your head up and know there are and will always be someone there for you. God bless.20210323_131549.jpg

They told me it was a result from the 1st surgery.
