I had a rny in 2006 and lost 14 lbs. Over the years, I regained the 14 lbs. and then 28 more pounds. If I wasn't constantly trying to keep from gaining I could easily be 400 lbs. Shortly after surgery a GI doctor did endoscopies and GI xrays which s

I am 10 1/2 years post op today. I haven't been under 200 lbs. in 5 years. Because of insurance, I can't have a revision. I have to do this myself...somehow!

I burn 10 calories for each pound of me. If I eat 1600 calories I will eventually w

Seriously, is it?  I would love to hear from people 5 years out at a bmi of 25 or under.  It seems like most people lose for 1 year, maintain for 1 year and then start regaining weight.  Often the people that maintain a b

Is there anyone that had the Apollo endosurgery to decrease the pouch size and stoma?  How far after the procedure are you?  How small did the GI doctor make your stoma and pouch? Do you feel any restriction?  thanks, Tri

I am still struggling 10 years later.  I wish I could be a success story like so many other people.  My rny never worked correctly.  I am grateful that I never told anyone I had the surgery.  I assumed that all rnys are the same, but they are not.  I w
