Haven't posted in a bit..But here goes the book again.

My whole process has been an experience..Open RNY July 2006
Lost 110
2011 January had a 28 lb panis removed..with a bleed around 10 pm and back to the or we went..So long story very short..Gotta love this.

My Sister lost some weight and I don't have to buy tops..or an leather JKT
Cause she cleaned out her closet and yippee I scored huge.  They fit..

Pants and skirts are a different thing..I now have a lap so if that tells you anything
everything fits on the butt end but the front side..Seamstress here I come..
I am also doing a lot of protien and trying water yuk
But I am doing it..

Also, that drain hole is still there 4 cm..not wide at all..so I guess she will be guest for a while..
Nurse is still my visitor 3 times a week to repack it..I just wi**** would heal..3.5 months I would say is enough. I can't go fishing or swiming either.  Ouch..

Purchased a 2002 Sebring,  she looks good now, for the safety..for myself by myself...if you knew my spouse you'd understand why..

Sounds like you're doing great (minus the non-healing thing).  Keep it up!

I was told to have the pannis removed 25 or more years ago and was too scared....

I had lost my drain on that side before it was due to come out..So the doc's say it could take up from 3 to 6 months to close..so here I sit..

I feel pretty good actually.  Just wishing it would heal..I am walking alot and look a whole lot better.

Thanks for the questions, I don't mind answering..
