back surgery and regaining weight

Jul 14, 2012

hi all its been a long time since i posted. I had a beautiful baby girl named Kaitlin on Marh 15, 2010... I also in 2010 had a 3 level lumbar fusion with 3 level disc replacement. It has been a long and painful 2 years which has spun out of control and caused weight gain and depression. I have GOT to get back on track and get back to loosign weight. I did not do all of this to get back to morbid obesity! So im back and will be watching the forums for advice and support.

I am so happy to say that all the pain has mostly gone away and I have lost 41 pounds so far and have more energy than I have had in years!!! I am still only eating cottage cheese, refried beans, turkey, chicken, string cheese, eggs, sf pops & protein shakes. But I am happy to have these things.  I am walking and riding my recumbent bike.

well, i had my rny on 10/28/08. I must say that nothing could have prepared me for the pain that I had. My stomach and left side hurt worst than anything EVER!!!  Even here at home 4 days later I am still hurting. my left side pulls and its tough to move around and walk. I feel like something to going to rip inside my stomach. I am hoping that each day the pain will get better. I am still glad I had the surgery but I do wish to get over this part quickly.

I have lost 19 pounds before surgery and 4 pounds since surgery.
