17 years out and intense heartburn

So much has changed since my last entry


I had bariatric RnY in 2012. Did very well, in spite of not having a not so supportive husband. Went from 303 to 189, then had an injury. We moved from Iowa to my home state of Virginia. My husband eventually came around. His job as a software engineer eventually moved us…

Has anyone had to get IV iron infusion therapy recently? I can't seem to find a hospital near me. Is it true? This is no longer covered by OHIP?

Guess Who's Back!!


17 Years Later... the weight came back ( but not all of it). But the journey continues. 


Just saying hi


Not sure if anyone is still around.  I am about 16 years post op.  Never made it to my goal weight of 150.  I have stayed consistently between low 160's and 170's.  Seems to be my sweet spot.  No complaints.  Far cry from 265 (pre op).  Well if anyone is…
