Hi everyone

I cant believe I'm here.. 3 years ago I joined this site, asking for advice how to tell my family about the decision I wanted to do to go for a gastric bypass..

3 years later I'm here..I lost 77 kilograms , the first year was great. The second year was still great but I was starting to feel "weird", now after 3 years .. I'm sick. Very sick. I have early and late dumping, low blood sugar feeling throughout today, low blood pressure throughout the day, tingling hands and feet, extreme fatigue. I have cramps and pain that I have never experienced in my life. My bones, my muscles and nerves. The worst is waking up everyday with dizziness and fuzzy feeling in my head, that gets worse after drinking and eating. Besides that, I can't regulate my normal body temperature anymore. There is so much to speak about and write about my symptoms...

There are multiple causes that this can have which I personally find unlikely.

They said I'm stressed and anxiety, depressed which can cause these symptoms. I know that this has a factor but not to this extent. After that , I had the vaccine , they say its unlikely.

I'm suffering for the past year off and on but the last 7 months I have been suffering more. Every day is hell.

To make a long story short, I want to go back to normal anatomy. I want to undo my surgery , hoping, it will get rid of my symptoms.

Now this is a big and dangerous surgery. They say you can get gastropersises , gerd , intestines problems etc. But living like this is pure hell.. no life. My symptoms are leading my life, I'm not living my life.

So who else has done this or contemplating? I'm willing to do whatever it takes at this point because I'm done.. I'm done with suffering

Thanks for reading

Gosh, I'm so sorry you're going through this!

I have nothing to offer you about the reversion surgery but I'm wondering... What Vitamins are you taking and what does your specialist (not general practitioner) say about your symptoms?

if you haven't already, you should have a complete workup so they can figure out what's going on. Some of this may or may not be related to your surgery. Are you really diligent with your Vitamins? I've read Vitamin B deficiencies can cause nerve issues, for example.

as far as revision - yes, RNY is technically reversible, but they only do that for severe medical issues that can't be resolved any other way. Also, if some of this IS related to the surgery, you'd see some improvement after revision, but it's not going to be the same as it was before you had the surgery.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
