I had RNY 5 months ago today. It went very smoothly with no issues for quite a while. Before this surgery they knew I had a gall stone but it wasn’t bothering me so they left it. At 3 months post op I started having some issues - first with my bo

I have a few websites I go to for good bariatric recipes but I was wondering what everyone else uses? I think the one I use the most is the world according to eggface.

Yesterday I was at our Brantford symphony’s annual giant book sale and it was a bit crowded around one table of books. An older lady was beside me and I was trying to get around her but I had a bag of books over my shoulder. She moved her stuff ove

That’s right! I have done 7 days of OPTI now! Woohoo I’m half way there. The hardest day was day 1 and last night when my daughter made pillsbury hot dogs. I love those and all I wanted was one bite and a glass of wine! My husband talked me do

I have a question..... I read about a lot of people who have issues with the first few days of Optifast. I work in a large office that doesn’t lend itself well to privacy. Should I take the first day or two off when I start OPTI?

I did it! I went to the clinic at St. Joe’s yesterday to see if it made a difference to get my surgery date. Guess what? I’m booked for Feb 16! It couldn’t have worked out better. Now I really have to prepare. I’ll take any advice at all<

How long after surgery should I wait to go on vacation. I sign consents Nov. 2 and want to go on cancellation list but am not sure what to do. We have been invited to go to Florida at the end of January. I am thinking I should put off surgery until af

I have a CT scan booked for tomorrow because they found a spot on my liver. They are sure it's just like a birthmark but have to be certain. Fingers crossed!! I also have one gallstone so they may remove my gallbladder at the same time of my surgery.
