  1. I had mine done with Dr Thyodil at Methodist Hospital . Im two months out and feeling great.
  2. hi mari! how are you doing? feeling good?

  3. Aartemys I noticed your surgery date was 10/25/11 , i had mine 10/26/11. How are you feeling? So my exact loss is 39 since date of surgery and yes i have noticed a loss in inches it just would be nice to see it on the scale which i only get on once a week.
  4. Hi im now exactly two months out and i've lost 50 , I feel like thats a small amount for two months compared to stories i hear read hear. Can anyone share their progress? I just want to know if im at a good pace. Thanks
  5. Can anyone tell me whats the rule on coffee after RNY?

      I am two weeks post op and my husband is one week post op. On our clear liquid trays at the hospital, we had decaf coffee. No creamer until week 2.

      I was cleared for regular coffee at 6 months. I'm sure that I drink too much of it, but I've restricted myself to only having the real stuff at work (and on my weekends). Once I leave work at 1:30 its decaf only. I used to think there was no point to decaf, but I found that I really enjoy having a hot beveridge and as long as it's STRONG I dont mind. That means only if I brew it myself or get a decaf espresso.
