Hi. I had an open RNY October 2011. I have not had any problems so far. No major gas or anything. I do not like the scar that it left, but, I healed well. I did have to sleep in a recliner for about 2 weeks. I felt like I was suffocating when I tried to sleep in the bed. Good luck with your surgery.
I have slowed down as well. I am about 4 months out. I started lifting weights a few weeks ago, and the scale did not move. I could also tell that I was loosing inches when I wasn't loosing weight. I figured I was lifting too many weights, so I slowed down. The scale is moving again. My surgeon did tell me that as time goes on, I could become more comfortable with food. I use myfitnesspal.com to log every bite and exercise.
