Hi are any of you out there in Ontario/Canada on Saxenda? I got down to 153 and with my reactive hypoglycemia I have gone up to between 165-170 (fluctuates). My endocrinologist thought I might benefit from a short course of Saxenda. Has anyone tried

Hi all!  I just had my 2 year follow up at TWH on the 8th of February.  I was 300 pounds and today I am 153.  I have been having a lot of anxiety and depression related to the fact that my Mom has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.  I haven't had a d

Hello all!  I had surgery coming up to one year ago February 6th and I have lost 120 pounds.  I have decided I want to have my arms done and a tummy tuck.  I have about 15-20 pounds to go before I reach my goal weight, and I want to be firmly at my goa

Hello all! Does anyone drink flavoured coffee? I have a serious coffee addiction since the surgery and have been having a latte everyday. It is not good and I am trying to cut back to just regular coffee (1 cup a day). I am wondering if anyone drin

Hello all I went vitamin shopping last weekend and realized instead of getting calcium citrate I got carbonate. It is a bottle of 120 pills at 500 mgs per tablet, so would last me 40 days if I were to take 3 a day. The price was so good on it I don't

Hello all!  I have recently discovered that I may have orthostatic hypotension after almost fainting last week.  I went to the GP the next day and had my blood pressure checked and it was 100/70.  I am wondering if any of you have ever had this after y

Hello everyone!  Here is my random mish mash "rant" of NSVs, in no particular order.

Hello all I am about 5.5 months out and wanted to try corn on the cob soon.  Have any of you had experiences with it?  I was thinking I could start off with half of a corn on the cob and see how that went down.  No butter of course but maybe a little b

I am just over 5 months out and I am feeling well except for this past week and today I have been having unbelievable gas in my belly - the farting kind, not the burping kind LOL.  It just won't come out and feels trapped in there.  I have been walking

Hello all.  I am wondering what birth control do you use?  I am 4.5 months out from RNY and was told the pill isn't effective so not to trust it.  What other forms of birth control do you know about that I could discuss with my doctor?  I can't have an

Have any of you had to get iron injections?  If so, what is it like?  Do you go to the pharmacy and get the iron and then go to your doctor's office? The reason I ask is my iron was low at my 3 month blood work and my doctor said if it didn't raise sig

So I am 3.5 months out.  When I first came back to work I had the food police on me.  They were everywhere.  Especially at work, but including my husband to be.  Now that the food police have retreated, because they are used to my new way of eating, he

Do you take probiotics?  I used to take them pre-surgery and haven't since but recently have eaten some Greek yogurt with the HOWARU probiotics in it from Loblaws.  It has eased my constipation.  But pre-surgery I found probiotics to be constipating.

I take 2 doses of a multivitamin pill every day.  Recently, I've started taking my multivitamins together (2 pills) in one dose.  Do you do this as well?  Is this not good to do?  Please share your thoughts.

I have been having "regular" periods (in that they are every 28-34 days and not every 58 days pre-surgery) but I am still having horrible cramps.  I used to take ponstan but that is a no-no post-surgery as it's an NSAID.  My doctor prescribed me some p

I am down 52 pounds since starting Optifast on January 16th.  I was 290 and now I am 238.  I just sprinted up the stairs at work (about 20 steep stairs) and wasn't the least bit winded.  I feel so great!  Before surgery I would have taken the elevator.

Hi all. I am 8 weeks post op. I have been having trouble with all meats. I was fine during the pureed stage but now solid meat bugs me and 9/10 times I end up throwing up.  Does it get better? I am chewing small bites really slowly and putting my fork

I used to take voltaren anti inflammatory tablets when I had sore knees.  It is an NSAID so it's a no-no after surgery.  But, has anyone tried the voltaren cream?  Is that safe for us RNY-ers?  My left knee is absolutely killing me.  I must have done s
