Stupid question ?

I have read or heard in the past that a lot of our  immunity protection is found in the gut. Has anyone found an increase in colds/flu etc. since surgery?

there are no stupid questions and I have seen no difference

but I think they mean the intestines  not the stomach

The stomach does nothing but churn the food.  All the vitamins and nutrients are absorb in your intestines, which aren't touched with the VSG.  When I'm on plan, eating nutritious foods and taking my vitamins, I'm WAY healthier now then before surgery.

I agree with MsShell.  I have had one flu like episode in 6 years, even though I have been surrounded by sick spouse and children on many occasions.  I have never been so healthy in all of my life, and my blood work is stellar!

I'm 10 months out, and I've been really healthy since surgery.  (One cold in January)  I attribute it to the healthy eating and exercise. 

best wishes,

Carol
