Topic: RE: RNY reversal
The first few months are so hard and it's a complete and total adjustment. You are probably feeling the very normal "buyer's remorse" that most of us experience after something this life altering. IT WILL GET BETTER. Take comfort in knowing that what you are experiencing now is the worst of it and that every day you will be an inch closer to feeling back to "normal". I'm 5 months out and eat almost everything (in very small portions). But I also follow my doctor's advice about supplements, water intake, and exercise. Go easy on yourself, in the beginning it's almost impossible to really "get it right". Hang in there though, as time progresses you will start to almost forget you even had surgery and your new habits will just become a lifestyle. It doesn't bother me at all at this point that I can't gorge myself or binge on unhealthy things that made me fat and miserable in the first place and lead me to choose surgery. When you're feeling down try and think back on the reason you had the surgery in the first place and consider speaking with a counselor or supportive friend if you need a shoulder to lean on as we all do once in a while. Best of luck on your journey, and remember, it WILL get better!
