I had RNY in 2000 and was very successful. I lost approximately 220 pounds. Due to a car accident I stopped exercising and have been unable to do many activites and have regained 85 pounds. To me my first surgery was a success. I at this point still would do it all over again. No more 8 insulin shots and off the CPAP. With the back injuries and surgeries and steroid injects and steroids and the other 6 pain management pills i take 2 or 3 times a day weight started coming back. So now I am going to be revised to the DS.
Also I found my first page from my surgery in 2000 the link to it is : Clarissa B and here is the hyperlink
I wish I could get into that profile and just continue on with it. Sigh any Ideas. I no longer have the email account from way back then.
