Single Status Update
Been a lot going on with me the last 6 months or so. I'll try and keep it brief and simple. I started having severe pain, frequent vomiting, and acid reflux that eventually led me to the emergency room one night. Fast forward a month or so and 2 EGD's later it was determined that I had some inflammation causing some blockage that they opened with a balloon as well as the formation of a fistula.
I underwent Laparoscopic Gastro Gastric Take Down and a Red of the Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass on the 4th of February. The procedure went well. He was able to do the revision without any complications and removed a lot of scar tissue. I spent 4 days in the hospital. My surgeon thinks the fistula may have formed due to some anti-inflammatory medications I was on for pericarditis (swelling and irritation of the thin saclike membrane surrounding the heart.)
So, I'm back on the same post-surgery diet phases...Yay! I'm just ready to get healed up and back to lifting weights, riding my bike, swimming, and running again. Keep me in your prayers as I heal. Thanks!

@Cheesehead He said I can run, swim, and ride my bike whenever I feel up to it and to listen to my body. I'm going to wait until I'm in a little less pain still. I'm thinking by next Friday or so I'll give it a go and see. As far as lifting weights I have to wait 4-6 weeks.
