One year anniversary of my RNY- 110 pounds and a gallbladder lighter! I’m so grateful to have my life back!

I am almost a year out and for the last week I’ve been ravenously hungry- as in stomach growling, can’t concentrate until I eat- hunger. I’m taking all of my vitamins and eating my 60-70g of protein. I’ve lost over 100 pounds and am so afraid

The surgery was today and the surgeon said everything looked splendid. This evening I was having awful pain from the CO2, and was walking around the house. Pants felt wet, and a quick look revealed the steri-strip on my bel

I'm less than 7 months out and my gallbladder is coming out Friday. I've had terrible problems with pain in my side, constipation, ridiculous burping and extreme fatigue. Just feel sick. Ultrasound revealed sludge and my surgeon told me I'm apparentl

Was having pain in my side and an ultrasound revealed gallbladder sludge. Has anyone had this problem, and did it clear or did you end up losing your gallbladder? Currently taking Orso 3x daily.

I'm so frustrated. Only lost THREE pounds the whole month of May. I'm seeing inches coming off, but it just feels so discouraging. Has anyone tried doing a jump start to get the scale moving again, like just doing shakes for a couple days? If so, d

I've lost 70 pounds in a little less than 5 months. Lately I've had extreme fatigue and generally just feel yucky. Just had full labs done and all that was low was calcium, which is being addressed immediately. Everything else is normal. Has anyone

When taking a bath this evening I looked down and saw two knees- not lumpy stumps for legs and a glob where a knee actually is...but two real knees! Haven't seen them in 10 years. Haven't been this happy since I crossed my legs back in February! Yay

I did something really dumb. On Easter I ate way, way too much and had awful nausea and diarrhea. Ever since then, I'm nauseous whenever I eat. I never vomited. I have a regular follow up Friday with the surgeon. Should I just assume I overstretch

Anyone use these to keep your protein up? Claims to be 100% whey protein.

 I'm in a 2 week stall and it really has me down in the dumps.  I realize this won't be the only one, and that weight loss will slow down the further out I get.  I've lost 39 pounds since Dec 5, and I know I should be grateful, but I actually feel angr


MsKitty12345 posted a discussion topic 11 months, 1 week ago

ive been burping like crazy ever since this surgery.  I chew slowly and take small bites, don't overeat- does this constant burping after eating go away over time?  I am burping like a man- loud, pressure burps.  Embarrassing.


MsKitty12345 posted a discussion topic 11 months, 1 week ago

the scale hasn't moved for SEVEN days.  I'm five weeks post surgery on Monday.  Anyone know a good way to restart the weight loss?  I'm not cleared for the gym for another week.


MsKitty12345 posted a discussion topic 11 months, 2 weeks ago

About 8 or 9pm I've been nauseous every night for a week.  Haven't eaten anything I'm not supposed to, nothing heavy in the evening, etc.  Started actually throwing up 3 days ago.  Only nauseous at night.  called the nurse and she told me to take a nau

just tried 1/4 cup of mashed potatoes (yes, doc said it was ok) and "pouchie" got really angry.  What foods does your pouch just not like?

I was unfortunately one of the unlucky ones with complications and went home with two drains.  my two week post op check up was today and the doctor removed my second/last drain.  I feel better already!  For those of you who went home with drains, how

I am 10 days post-op and supposed to go back to work Monday (two weeks off work).  I have no energy.  Taking a shower is like running a marathon.  Blending a shake is like walking a mile.  Am I alone in this?  Following post op diet 100%.


MsKitty12345 posted a discussion topic 1 year ago

I promised I would post after my surgery, sorry it's been a few days. Spent the day of my surgery (Monday) with the worst nausea of my life. That evening I started vomiting bright red blood until I saw the surgeon standing over me with a priest. The su

Ive heard whipped cottage cheese is great post op.  Has anyone found it at the store?

less than 24 hours before my surgery. I'm definitely feeling the nerves.  Any last minute tips or for immediately following surgery?


MsKitty12345 posted a discussion topic 1 year ago

I posted earlier in the week about struggling with my liquid diet.  Today something inside me snapped.  I was just so freaking hungry and I ate a chicken sandwich and two pieces of cheese.  It immediately made me sick, gave me diarrhea and vomiting, as
