Topic: RE: Lower BMI....any regrets?
I am two years post-op, 5'4" and 140 lbs. I was 236, BMI 39.3 when I started. I CAN tell you that there have been a few times I have doubted my decision, but 99% of the time, I am very glad I did it. I have had to have other surgeries (not related), and the meds I could take were limited by my RNY. Also, I dump, which has its good and bad sides. It keeps me in check, but sometimes I miss being able to enjoy dessert with my family. However, these are the only doubts/regrets I have, and I would not change a thing now. The benefits of losing those 100 pounds have far outweighed (excuse the pun) the very few negatives. I just want to be honest and realistic with you. You will have moments when you will doubt your decision or wonder if what you did was the right thing, but my experience has been that 99% of the time, I am sure that I made the right choice. I hope this helps you.
