Topic: RE: Is this dumping or a virus

Dumping has zero to do with going to the bathroom. Sounds like a simple case of the squits!

Topic: RE: Pet problem & possible solutions?

Unless you're expected to pick them up, I don't see a problem. I had an 11 month old son when I had my surgery and he climbed all over me lol.

I had little to no pain after surgery. No narcotic pain killers other than the day of surgery. I don't think I'm that unusual, it's just those of us who sail through rarely post about how easy it was.

It's just *****iness, as best as I can tell. Like, a BP member shows up and other former BPers post and something snide has to be said. Like peeing on trees, but on the internet.

*****y? WTF are you talking about?

The intention was more 'post and they will come'. If you think that's *****y, then that's what it is. I'm just a meanie pants lol

Topic: RE: Which surgery did you have and why?

It'll be 13 years this July, yikes! No complications at all, just the constant fight to maintain the weightloss lol. I've stayed really healthy over all this time, although I will say I think it's because I'm totally responsible in taking my supplements, getting my labs done etc. My PCP has several RNY patients and he considers me the healthiest and most compliant. He was shocked at how far out I was as his others are nowhere near ...

Staying present on OH does help me stay mindful and I've met lots of great folks over the years, both online and in person

It absolutely would be a bad choice. Long term use of PPIs is contra indicated and long term GERD is no joke for health either.

Topic: RE: 10 Year Bloodwork

You need to get a copy of those results they say are normal. We have seen many instances here where normal is absolutely NOT normal. You will also need them to compare them with your previous years results as well as next years.

Topic: RE: HELP...I have a sore throat and am scheduled for VSG Monday morning 5:45am

If they cancelled surgery for everyone who had a bit of a cold, there would be scheduling chaos!!! It's the anesthesiologist's call whether your ok for surgery in this cir****tance, not the surgeon (they're the one who'll keep you breathing and alive!), so I'm sure you'll be good to go!

Good luck for Monday x

Unless you have an active infection, surgery will go ahead

I watched her on a TMZ video yesterday and she looked and walked like an old lady. My first thought was malnutrition or vitamin deficiencies. She definitely did NOT look well.

Topic: RE: So Conflicted - Advice Needed

I had my RNY almost 13 years ago and have great (better than average) dexascan results.

If you search RNY vs VSG on this site you will find a gazillion threads comparing the two surgeries.

Topic: RE: Do you think I will be okay to go to Disney 3 months after RNY ?

No WAY your intestines are not healed in 90 days!!!! WTHF?

Your inside organs heal very quickly. There's a reason you can do ANY exercise you like after 6 weeks (42 days) and that's errs on the side of stupid anatomy knowledge (ie your surgeon covering his ass) and their fear you'll cause a hernia.

Topic: RE: Do you think I will be okay to go to Disney 3 months after RNY ?

I think I may have had a different surgery to some, because I could have done this a month after surgery! I quit being a patient the day I left hospital and if you do the same, you'll be fine!

Wear comfortable footwear is my biggest piece of advice.

My ex husband was MD of a company and we were at an international corporate dinner in Singapore. I felt ill, passed out, drama, ambulance, fine once I reached hospital.

Will never forget it and nor will the gazillion other people there. I was about 3 + years out. Beware catered food lol

Topic: RE: Patch MD - 3 months post OP tests

My provider, Kaiser Permanente, put all my results in software that tracks my trends, including a year on year graph. They also post my results BEFORE my doc reviews them, so I know what I need to discuss with him. My old spreadsheets are now filed.
