Topic: RE: What will the surgeon say???

^^^^^ what Grim said - VSG is an absolute no for you ...   RNY is possible with just an alteration to your prescription - you are not the first on mental health drugs and won't be the last ...

Topic: RE: Upset with Care

Sounds like a bariatric mill.  I always saw my surgeon at visits, but then it was before bariatrics became a money spinner ...

People have surgery abroad without follow up and you are a nurse, so unless you have a problem, go to one follow up appt and then get your PCP to do follow ups - at least you stand a chance of seeing someone who graduated med school

Topic: RE: THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!! Wise words about WLS!

Because most of us know that sharing other people's medical information - especially if it's speculation - is not right.   If someone wants to share their story, that's their right, but it is NOT your place to share information on someone else.

You never cease to amaze me how low you will go ...

Topic: RE: Clarity ensues

Love it when people acknowledge the help and support they get here and don't just post and run.  Nobody comes here for the thanks, but it is nice when they come.

The posters here really do have your (the collective) best interests at heart and will do their best to help - without all the bull crap and there, there handpatting.

Communication is the key to a good relationship - I think you and your wife got this

A stricture is a simple fix - a take down is a very serious surgery only done if the problem is life threatening.

Topic: RE: Fears and Doubts

53 year old female here, 11.5 years after surgery.  Still eat yummy food, but less ...   Have survived without ice cream and cake - good chocolate is still my friend - just not the whole bar.

This is doable, but if you want to be successful in the long term, you will have to learn to enjoy quality over quantity ...

Topic: RE: Is This Good or Bad Behavior???

Nobody this far out needs to be drinking their protein ...  especially if they want to lose weight.  

When are we going to acknowledge that protein is not some sort of superfood or miracle diet food and its addition efinitely does not negate the calories that accompany it, whether it's in a hot chocolate drink or a franken cookie.

Topic: RE: HOW DID YOU KNOW YOU ARE/WERE IN MAINTENANCE?

I just kept doing the same thing until I stopped losing - I was 6 months out and at a BMI of 22.   I never decided maintenance, my body definitely did.  I maintained the same weight until 4 years out when I had my first (small) regain.  

Maintenance has been a challenge ever since ...

Topic: RE: Success story

You might find more interest in a community in which you are a regular contributor.  That way people would know who you are and care about your success.  There are a lot of people who come here just to schill their blogs ...

There are lots of people here, who are successful veterans who help people with their journey, answering questions, formulating recipes, writing about the secrets of their success 5, 10 etc years out.  Long term success is what counts as experience because long term maintenance is the part of the journey that requires knowledge, dedication and hard work.  

I look forward to seeing you here as a regular contributor imparting your wisdom to all those *****quest it and making that real difference you crave.  Good luck with your blog

I've had to teach 4 PCP's so far and because they shut down our health co-op (f**k you Corey Gardner), Ive got to take on another student in January.

Topic: RE: ZERO CHANCE

I had my surgery back in the old days when we didn't get a lot of instruction and had to learn the hard way.    Most people on here are gifted instructions for their early days and then have this fabulous resource of people who have stayed here for years paying forward their education and experiences.

To see that poo poo'd in favour of what is clearly ridiculous is sad, but unfortunately all too common.

Most WLS vets (5+ years post surgery) who stick around on here have either pretty much lived or seen it all.  We can actually accurately assess, in a few posts, who will be successful at losing and maintaining their weight loss and who will crash and burn ...   however, people are redeemable if they remain open minded and stick around to enjoy the fruits of others successes and mistakes (because none of us is perfect!)
