Jun 29, 2011Wow, well it's been 4 years now since my gastric bypass. I'm still maintaining my weight at 165 size 8 to 10. I have not had any complications. I did have to have back surgery last year, had a herniated disk. So that surgery was in May of 2010. I actually reinjured in July and had to have surgery again. I am still dealing with that, have back pain all the time. My husband and I hired a personal trainer to try and tone up the little bit of lose skin I have and strengthen the muscles in my back. Well that's on hold for now because my back is bothering me again. I don't think any of this is related to my gastric bypass, but my neurologist says is could have some impact on my spine do to the weight loss, carrying around that extra weight for so long and then losing it, now there's not that extra pressure on my spine. Who knows, I just hope I can get it fixed. I love being able to go to Splashtown with my kids and ride the rides, like even more being able to wear a bathing suit and feel comfortable in it, I even have a tankini!!! How awesome is that? I love the fact that I finally have the weight off. It feels so good. I am even trying to quit smoking. That's a little ruffer than I thought it would be. I'm trying though. I just hope I don't gain any weight in the process. All is good and I'm very thankful!
