  3. First of all, welcome @Sue Lewis to TTF! We are here for you on your weight loss surgery journey. Hunger pain after a gastric bypass surgery are not common, but do occur. I am sorry that you have them - I have the opposite problem in that I can skip meals if I don't remember to eat. Most importunely, the issues that you face in the first few months after surgery may not be long term issues. For example, 7 weeks after my gastric bypass I become lactose intolerant, a (miserable) condition that lasted only a few weeks. Hang in there. Stay on your post-op diet. We are here to support you.
  4. I can’t eat anything soft makes me sick just thinking about it, I’m tired of broth and need other things too eat, I don’t like the protein shakes either, I’m hungry. Also I’m take women’s laxative and miralax but still find I get constipated regularly with pain and vomiting when I have too eat or drink, anyone else go through this or just lucky me?
  5. I’m 7 weeks post op after having a gastric bypass. I also don’t feel full after eating and I get the most horrendous hunger pangs after a few hours. I thought I might have done something wrong, like eating too fast. It’s encouraging to know I’m not alone and that there is hope that this is only temporary while my hormones settle down. Thanks for your posts.

  7. Yes thank you for the support. March 7, 2021 was my 2 year mark since Gastric Sleeve. Day of Surgery I weighed 352 lbs. Today is September 17, 2021 so 2.5 years and I have kept all the weight off. I actually just had my appointment on Wednesday and I weigh 148. I walk 10+ miles a day. I do the other exercises. I seem to have an issue with getting the skin to tighten up again. Of course my Dr said I may have to end up having surgery to get it all tightened. I have no idea where to even look. It's frustrating that I work everyday to keep the weight off but still in bigger clothes because of all the skin. Like really!!
  8. Welcome to Thinner Times Sandra! I was pretty sore for a few days after my gastric bypass but I also had hernias repaired at the same time and came home with drains. Best advice I can give is that when you get home from hospital, you take little walks around the house/yard at regular intervals and keep up with your fluids.
  9. Hey I'm a new patient my name is Sandra I just wanted to know what it was like after surgery I am fixing to have my surgery sometime in November I'm very excited I started my journey a year ago
  10. Earlier
  11. I do the same exact thing and sometimes it’s continuous for hours and Gas-X does not help it. It’s very uncomfortable and I don’t understand it
  12. I am having a very similar experience, I am hoping I’m close to a plummet! Thank you for sharing, down 41lbs now and counting. 6 months out, one day at a time
  13. I am having the same exact thing, I’m 6 months post op and I’m getting it in the same places! Sometimes my upper arms and back as well. We thought it was a reaction to medication but it hasn’t gone away even after taking it. And all my blood work came back normal. Glad to know it went away on its own.
  14. A warm welcome to Thinner Times Rashell and congratulations on dropping 51lb - that's excellent! Yep! It's pretty common to see a fluctuation in your weight during your period cycle. Just keep doing what you're doing.
  15. Hello. Im new here. Im almost a month post gastric bypass surgery. Including the preop diet i lost 51 pounds. Very excited to see things progress Does everyone gain a few before theyre period?
  16. This is comforting. I gained 6 pounds in one day and i was freaking out. I hadnt changed anything in my diet and was taking long walks but i know my period is on its way.
  17. Susan, Check with the hospital where you had your surgery or call your local primary care's office. They should be able to give you the information you want.
  18. Hi, I had surgery with doctor 05/96 and tried to call to check out meetings. Has the phone been disconnected? Thx! Susan
  19. I see many people have developed a problem with night eating since surgery. Is anyone else like this?
  20. I haven't had any issues like that - it sounds scary. I'd recommend you have it checked out with your primary care provider sooner rather than later.
  21. I am 7 years out of RNY bypass surgery. I have moderate reactive hypoglycemia but no other complications. I have been going through very difficult family problems which caused a lot of stress and sadness. The other day I was coming out of a work meeting, thinking of all the tasks that I had to do and also answering upsetting text messages from family when I started feeling severe chest pain. An opression in the middle of the chest that went all the way around to my back. It was so bad that I thought I may be having a heart attack. I panicked, then thought it could be an esophageal spasm as I had the same type of experience before the surgery once. Tried to calm down and put my head between my knees which seemed to make it better, then after a while slowly walked around until the pain subsided. It may have lasted 30 minutes in total. Have any of you had a similar experience? If so, what caused it? Should I be worried about it being something else?
  22. I am nearly two years post op (bypass) and was told that alcohol use is never ok post op; but you need to verify that with your bariatric program/surgeon. I believe the risks of ulcers and extreme sensitivity to alcohol are the reasons behind the lifelong ban; but, at least for me, that's a small price to pay to allow me to get to a healthy BMI.
  23. Hello everyone! I’m looking into the possibility of having conversion surgery (band to bypass) and I want to know the real truth about drinking socially post op. I’ve read several threads (on this site) about alcohol consumption, post bypass, but I still don’t have the full picture… I like to drink socially. One of my favorite things to do is attend a ladies lunch and enjoy a few drinks with the girls. What is the real truth one year Post op? I would love to hear from those of you that still drink alcohol…? Is drinking socially something I will have to give up, or can I still enjoy a few wines?
  24. Sorry for chiming in to the thread so late, just wanted to add my 2 cents. Yoga can totally help you lose weight for IVF if that's your goal. Yoga burns calories when done the right way, that's for sure! If you are serious about losing weight and getting fit, you might want to implement a 60-minute power yoga and/or vinyasa flow practice at least five to six days per week. This yoga weight loss program was easy to follow and worked flawlessly for me. Each class is easy to follow, but is varied and enjoyable. Dynamic Sequencing means you'll always be challenged regardless of your current level. If you want to follow my example, think about coupling your practice with a whole foods diet for optimal results. Good luck! Mandy
  25. Sounds like the surgery is doing what you wanted it to accomplish. You aren't hungry. you are losing weight and can't over eat. So long as your blood work is good, it sounds like a success story to me.
