i must say i was super excited to get my surgery date. The. Being told fo fast was not so exciting around the holidays. So surgery went well i hear. But when I woke up, i was in so much pain, it was as if i wwedygoing into labor. Now i have. High tolerance for pain, but this was different. I dont recall feeling anything after my rny. So the journey begins. I wll keep everyone updated with my progdessy. Just an fyi, i lost 12 pounds fasting. I was the hungriest, meanest, crankiest and upsetting person to be around. Kinda isolated myself so i wouldn't snap and be on the 5 o'clock news.

Two years ago you posted that you were getting the distal bypass. So is this a second revision?

No i was approved for the overstitch. I didnt want it because of the reviews and unsuccess of it. Then the dr also wanted 2000 more dollArs over what the insurance approved for that i difnt want to pay. Which i didn't understand. At the time i was told by the dr thT insurance wasn't approving the Ds. So i waited until it was approved to proceed.
