The good. The bad. And the ugly.

I haven't been on this site in a very very long time. I had Lapland in 2009 and had to have it removed recently and now seriously considering RNY. Actually going through all the pre-op stuff for the "just in case" I choose to get the surgery. I want to know your experiences, especially from males, I want to know the good, bad, and ugly. I feel confident that I'll recover easily, I come to that conclusion from both the lapband placement and removal. I appreciate everyone's time.

Unfortunately, it's really quiet here other than the menu thread. There are probably still lots of pertinent info in the history though, if you do a search.

Its a long time ago, but I sailed through my surgery. Off painkillers the day after surgery, out walking with a group within a week and can honestly say I had little discomfort and certainly not pain.

Keep up with fluids and get up and walk - they're the secrets to recovery.

Work hard to lose the excess weight as quickly as possible. Find a way to exercise that you enjoy - I walk my dog 4 miles every morning. Exercise is not for weightloss but for good health.

Vitamins are a non negotiable. I've taken mine faithfully for 17 years and I adjust according to labs.

Find a way to eat that's sustainable - this is not a finite diet but truly a change of lifestyle. Don't squander it.

Good luck
