Hi. Kyle here. I'm 4 to 6 weeks out from my roux en y surgery. I'm excited. Scared. Apprehensive. Determined and driven...lol

Hi!

I'm glad to have found this thread. I am in the planning stage and definitely need some advice if any is available. I'm in the BX. Anyone have any tips on what to ask my doctor or if I should just go straight to the surgeon?

I went to my primary first and she has a list of surgeons that she worked with before or other patients used before. That is where I got my recommendations of surgeons. However, if you know some surgeons already you could go straight to them since every hospital/program/insurance is a bit different

Bxnaija: I messaged you. Go to your PCP AND set up consultations with surgeons ASAP

Update: I will no longer get the gastric bypass surgery. I am going to get the duodenal switch surgery. YouTube it if you haven’t heard of it. It’s a great tool to have especially someone with over 100lbs to lose like myself. 🥰😍

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
