I am ten years out, had RNY, never got anywhere near my goal. I did lose more than the dr predicted but now I am packing pounds on again!!! I am going to see a Bariatric surgeon to see what he says. I think the stoma in my pouch stretched.
I was nine years out when I had a kidney stone. My symptom was blood in my urine. The doctor did a CT scan. They saw the stone, said the size, and put me on medicine to help me pass it. You then have to pee thru a strainer to catch the stone. A person has to make sure it gets passed. I had been drinking a lot of diet coke and I read somewhere that could have caused me to develop a stone. As far as pain, every person is different. I had two episodes of pain where I actually could tell where the stone was. Fortunately I did not have excruciating pain like some people experience. A CT scan is necessary if you get pain again or blood in the urine.
Hi Maryjo, I am on for same concern. I went from 324 to 135 with RNY surgery in March 2006. I stayed 135 until 2008 when I got pregnant. I went up to 150 but, I lost that baby. I got pregnant in 2009 again at 150 and I had a successful pregnancy. I gained exactly 60 lbs. My son is now 3 but, I have not been able to lose anything than water weight 210-200. I have tried everything to no avail. Did you find anything to help you? I would have a revision or band to lose again.
Anyone else struggling?
I lost down to 102 pounds, scared the crap out of everyone because the weight just kept falling off.
Anyway I had to make myself eat a little more often, and it helped. I am good. So happy.
