Oct 06, 2009I had my annual checkup in January 2009 and I have had to start getting a B-12 shot monthly. I can tell a difference since starting the shots with my energy level. Also, my Vitamin D intake was extremely low so I had to start a prescription Vitamin D for about 3 weeks that has gotten that straightened out. I am still having some problems with kidney stones - have had about 5 since March. I still am happy with my decision to have the surgery and would do it again tomorrow if had to make that choice. I am maintaining my weight well - between 142 - 145 pounds which I am happy with. Overall, doing great. Love shopping for clothes now where I hated it before the surgery.
