Had a Revision from RNY to the Standard DS in 10/2021

I had the RNY in 2014 and began to gain my weight back and pretty much hit my weight when I had my first surgery. My revision went great. Frustrated that my weightloss is alot slower than my first surgery, but I do get that I am older (48) and this is a revision as well. I have lost 46 lbs since then, but as I said it is much slower.

So here is what I am experiencing:

1) issues with eating meat. I have issues with the smells and actual consumption. There are times when I can tolerate it but there are more times when I can not and end up throwing it up (sorry TMI). I have spoke to my Dr.and a dietician. I was able to substitute the meat with beans (dietician did say this was okay for now) but then the beans turned on me and I ended up with so much bloating, uncomfortably bloated not to mention the gas...

2) extremely tired. I am taking my vitamins, had recent blood work and all is good actually really good. But I can not get over this fatigue. I want to get back to the gym to swim but by the time I get home I am exhausted. Working out in the morning is not an option as I have to be at work at 6:30 am.

Has anyone with this type of revision had similar issues. Any suggestions on protein ideas? I do still drink a protein shake every morning.

Just an option. You could back off and have just protein shakes(and your supplements) for a couple weeks. Give your gut and your nose a break and let them calm down. And BTW make sure those are meal replacement shakes that have the electrolytes you need! Plus you will probably lose a few pounds. Win/win.

Sort of a reset!

What is your ferritin level? Sometimes doctors say bloodwork is good, but levels that might be good for normal people are not good for folks who have had WLS.
