I had my RNY on Aug. 8, 2017. So far things are going great. Today I was at Sam's club picking up a couple cases of Premier Protein Shakes and bars when I found myself in the clothing section looking at new tops. I found this super cute pink velvety

Hi all,

My surgery is scheduled for Aug. 7th. Will my pain meds be in pill or liquid form? Will I be able to take my normal meds (pill form) when I get home from the hospital?

I am wondering if I need to call and talk to the Nurse or

How is a Duodenal Switch different than a RNY??

Just curious.

I got a call yesterday from the Surgeon's office. Procedure has been cancelled. So the pre-surg exam included a chest xray, and the results came back and they said there is something there that we need to look at. Soo, within minutes I get a call ba

Pre Admission Testing today... wow. I had forgotten about all the testing that is done. When I had the Lap Band in 2008 I don't think that I went through as much testing. ??

Ok, so does hair loss happen no matter how much weight you lose or will it occur if you lose like 100 lbs? Is it from lack of vitamins, shock to the system from anesthesia, sudden change in diet.. or all of it?

Anyone with lower BMI's that los

I was eating my dinner last night, baked chicken and veggies, and the STUCK feeling hit again. I have had this darn Lap Band since 9/2008. I am soo sick of it. I chew my food thoroughly, I eat slow slow, and I take very small bites. I did the usual

I am soo excited, tomorrow we meet with the Dr. I cannot wait!!

What is the 2 week prep for RNY? I didn't have a prep for the Lap Band.

Has anyone here tried Halo Top Ice Cream? A friend of mine is super fit and healthy, she recommends Halo Top Ice Cream if a person feels the need to splurge. Hi in protein, low in carbs... even has fiber. She said it isn't cheap, but its delish.
