I am very healthy 10 years after surgery. I watch my vitamins and supplement intakes and eat what I should and life is goo.

I'm 17+ years post-op. Healthy and living my life (I'm 63). Lost all my weight in about 18 months - 175 pounds and have maintained it. Plastics about 2 years post-op - TT and breast lift. I take my vitamins, eat my protein, drink my water to this day. Get labs done once a year. Currently have osteoporosis and working with my primary doctor (Reclast didn't work and now going to try Prolia). I also have to watch my iron - I rely on infusions - last one was more than 2 years ago and numbers are still go.

Other than that, life goes on!

After more than 4 yrs, I still am in shock that I have kept the weight off. It took about a year to get to goal but I still had to keep amounts and types of food in a journal. It kept me honest. I had one small problem with a partial obstruction 4 months after surgery. I believe it was from not chewing cheese well enough. I follow the supplements religiously and get blood work done religiously. It's part of my job to make this a success. About a year ago I was worried about creeping weight(3 or 4 lbs) and went to a very low carb diet. Stopped grazing. Since then I am below goal and keeping it off almost a year already. I need a small hernia repair on abdomen but I'm waiting for a decrease in covid before I take the chance.

It's been a wonderful thing for me. I couldn't be happier.
