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

I'm in illinois but am willing and wanting to offer you my ear. Advice and mainly my time to listen.

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. 🥰😍

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
