I am told I will be in for 2-3 days. My list says I will start taking multivitamins on day two and also be drinking protein. Will these be provided by the hospital or do I need to bring them? I'll ask them too but I am thinking ahead. TIA

I have all my medical clearances. I met with the nutritionist for the 3rd time today and she gave me clearance and the therapist gave me clearance 2 weeks ago. I have been in the program for 2.5 months. I have no insurance wait period required. Since F

I'm wondering how things will be after surgery. I know everyone is different but I'm curious about other's experiences regardless.

I have been logging my food daily for 2 weeks but want to know if I can export the info to show my nutritionist. TIA

Hi. I am in the pre op stage for RNY. I will most likely have surgery in about 2 months. I have lost 50lbs. I went to family party yesterday and people were asking me if I had lost weight. I may be different than anyone else but I don't like it when pe

So I met with the dietician last week. She wants me to start eating like I would if I were a couple months post op so I can get used to it and be able to figure out the protein. So, I am starting today. I wanted to run by my plan for today and see if i

I met with the nutritionist for the first time this morning. She asked me what my goal weight was. I told her 145lbs. She said a more realistic goal would be 190lbs and that would likely be as low as I could get. She asked me when the last time I weigh

I just found out that my insurance does not make me wait 6 months. I thought it did! As I have said, 9 yrs ago I did have a 6 month waiting period and went through the whole program, lost 40 pounds and was scheduled for surgery but backed out. So far t

I HATE artificial sweetener. I'm going to have to get over that I guess. So what's the best tasting shake and do you use RTD or powdered?


minaque2 posted a discussion topic 5 months, 1 week ago

I won't be having RNY for another few months but wanted to get some feedback from people that are post op. I have depression, anxiety and PTSD. I am doing pretty well. Have been in therapy and working hard for many years. Right now I am struggling with
