Hi SiepieI had* lap band surgery in 2004 and started having complications the following year and had to have it removed october last year, i have now put most of my weight back on, so now i am going to brugge in may to have a gastric bypass by dr dillimen, i just wished i chose the bypass in the first place. A couple of months ago i read in the paper that people who have diabetes and have had a gastric bypass have been cured, just a little something for you to think about, good look in wot ever you deside***** stephanie.*

Hi there-nice to find the Irish "thread" Hope you are doing well after your op.

I have been reading the lapbandtalk site for months but have(one the advice of 2 surgeons)decided to go for the bypass instead of band(eeek!I wake up with panic attacks)here in Cork.There is a new Obesity surgeon appointed to the Bons Secours Hospital.I am booked in to be done on 2nd July with a 2 week liquids only diet beforehand.I am excited but terrified at he same time.My bmi is 42 but I have no medical problems except arthritis so Dr thinks I am a good risk.

Just wondering Lindsey a few questions

1.He has told me that I will be weak from lack of food for 3 months which is the biggest shock time to the body.I'm finding it hard to decide how much time off work I should take.I only work 2/3 days per week but its standing and walking.

2.Also have a weeks holiday planned end sept with Mother(I will be the one hauling suitcases)should I cancel that?

3.Does the dumping thing happen EVERY time you eat ANYTHING sweet or can you eat,say, a square of chocolate?/boiled sweet?

4.How FATIGUED are you-he has warned me of HUGE fatigue that just washes over you and you have to rest far more?

5.Did you need a catheter?

6.Can you eat anything now or are you finding certain foods disagree?

I couldnt agree more about the GPs.Mine is awful she keeps repeating the mortality stats when I go in-I am seriously thinking of changing(after 25 years)as she is just not supporting me.

One last question-what did you tell your friends(I have told my 4 best friends and my sister who are all trustworthy)I dO NOT want to tell anyone else-just dont know what to tell boss etc(bad back?)

I would really appreciate your feedback, since you are so newly operated on-

Sue

Hi Sheree,

Good to meet you! You have some fabulous results there in your pictures! It's proving to be a challenging decision to make, Ive lots of research here from Australia that says that banding would be the best option for me in relation to my diabetes - to be honest the idea of them cutting up my stomach frightens the life out me!

The hair thing is a real issue for me as well, I wasnt blessed with decent hair to begin with, its thin now, I dont think I could stand to lose any more!

Thanks so much for your advice, I know everyones experiences are different but they are all contributing to me making an informed decision!

Siepie

I was sick and losing mine ,it came back how? .Alot of vitamins ,c,e,b vitamins ,(multi-vitamin) green tea ( 2 quarts a day) use this religiously and 30-60 days you shoud see a difference,I 'll pray

for you and your surgery success:) Jerry fom Downey,L.A.:D

Hi ya,

Maybe this will help you, I went for surgery through Dr. Dillemans Irish website called www.Euro-Weight-Loss-Surgery.com they are way cheaper than obesitycare.co.uk in fact they charge pretty much the same as what Dr. Dillemans charges himself and they also have priority regarding surgery dates. As I say, I used them and found them excellent.

I hopes this helps
