Its been 11 wonderful years since RNY surgery. I was 275 the day of surgery and this morning I weighed 140, that's 135 lbs gone forever. Still can't eat more than 15 grams of sugar at one time, but I don't miss it at all, in fact sugar just doesn't taste that good at all. I can eat most anything I want, so I don't feel deprived of anything. It's wonderful to control food and it not control me. I'm sure the surgery has progressed in the last 11 years, but I would do it over again the same way if I had to ( I had open RNY, not lap). It was worth every painful moment. Just hang in there if you just had surgery, it gets so much better.
