Okay, I know this is gross. I am desperate to know if this is normal post op at 3 months. I am not eating a lot of fat. It happens no matter what I eat. It has been like this non stop

I had a revision RNY on October 15, when I eat, I get deep, sharp pains under my sternum through to my back. Has anyone had that happen? It hasn't been unbearable. I know to go to doc or ER if it does. I am just wondering if this is normal healing.

Has anyone had their barium swallow show severe reflux? I went to my surgeon today, he says I need the GB based upon this test alone.

I was sleeved on 8/17/16, and I only lost about 35 lbs. My current BMI is 30. I have had severe reflux ever since surgery. I had a recent barium swallow that showed severe gastric reflux. My surgeon wouldn't do anything about it bc I have horrible adhe

I just finished my six months of classes, three weeks of life skills, and got my cardiac and respiratory clearance! I am so excited. I see the doc for my final medical clearance next Thursday, and then they submit everything to insurance to wait for ap

Does anyone use Tums or Rolaids daily for calcium supplementation?


MammaKathy posted a discussion topic 3 years ago

I have seen several posts where people have had their doctor tell them that the RNY is better for diabetics. Why? :)


MammaKathy posted a discussion topic 3 years, 1 month ago

Just curious, how often this happens? What was your recovery like? Why did it end up open?

 

Thanks!

Has anyone had multiple abdominal surgeries pre WLS? I have had a partial nephrectomy, splenectomy, partial pancreatectomy, hysterectomy and multiple laprascopies. I am half way through the 6 month process, and I had my EGD last week. Doc said my stoma

Did anyone have severe GERD (Indigestion) prior to your VSG? I know it is contraindicated sometimes for the VSG bc it can get worse with the VSG. I have pretty severe GERD, but really don't want the RNY.

 

Have anyone you had GERD pre V

Hello,

I am 51 yo mom of two with a BMI of 36.7. I have wanted to have a VSG for years, but always thought my BMI was not high enough. I have so many co morbidities that I finally decided to at least consult a surgeon. I was excited (LOL) to fi

I know this may not be very exciting to anyone except for me, but I was cleared for surgery by my pulmanologist today! I was so nervous about this appt because I had such severe pneumonia two years ago that I was on oxygen for 4 weeks. I thought he wou

I am just starting on this journey. I had a ton of labs drawn this morning. I am also an RN, and was able to access my results. My vitamin D level is only 12. I guess that is why I have had so much low back pain, pain in legs especially when walking, e
