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?
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'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.
