I had a VSG about 3 years ago.. since then I lost 115 pounds.. and regained.. 45 pounds.. due to stress.. I have lost my father and husband father.. have had to have a hysterectomy and major events happen in my life.. I feel that I failed this surgery.. because I have haven't used the tool that it was given to me.. I knew starting around 315 pounds.. the VSG might help me loose it all.. but still have allot more to use..
Now with a hernia developed I was strongly encouraged to have the gastric bypass next August.. to fix the hernia and help the acids in my stomach, the acids in my stomach have now damaged my esophagus, and got ton to the point it's hard to eat. Now with this developing problems my daily eating and lift is "hell". I take allot of anti acids daily, and drink medicine to protect my damaging esophagus. There is nothing more the doctors can do but do a full RNY - insurance won't cover it til next August. I am starting my journey now and hopefully it will work out. I know I have got ton off track, and seems 5 pounds started, and look now I am at 45 pounds later.
I have tried weigh****chers, and HCG, and even the 5 day pouch test 3 times, and with no success, I have even tried journing.
I have started now counseling and dealing with underling issues and habits, and will start doing the liquid protein. I have to try, I know I have to have this RNY for my acid and damage build up before it gets worse, but want to deal with my emotional eating. My life has turned upside down in 3 years, after surgery I lost my job, lost my home, moved 3,000 miles away for work.. etc.. I could go on..
So that is my journey.. now to prepare and get ready for my surgery next year...I have my physiology evaluation next week, and started my 6 month required diet supervised stuff.
August will be here sooner then you know it..
I posted on other forums and got really bad remarks.. I am hoping if I post in this one.. someone out other will understand..
