Countrymom congrats on your surgery and no diabetic meds. I had my surgery on 12/17/2012 and when I left the hospital I was no longer on diabetic meds, either. It is great!

The surgery is a tool and it is up to you to keep up with what you are supposed to do, etc..
Get plenty of fluids. Walk alot. Follow your Team's advice.

Hi everyone, Hope you all are having a great week.
I just had my first family doctor visit since my surgery 3 weeks ago. My A1C was 5.7 and they told me to stop taking my Diabetic meds. I had not been taken the meds since the surgery because I could not stand the taste of it crushed. They are going to recheck it in 6 weeks, they said, if the numbers come back 5.6 and below I will be diabetic free!!! I am down 35lbs as well!!

To those that are getting all the snow....send me some!!. LOL I miss living in an area that gets a lot of snow. I am in North Carolina near the coast..so not much snow here.

Have a blessed day, Sheila

Hi All;

I know, I've been bad being M.I.A. for a while. But I'm back again and PLAN not to go M.I.A. again.

Been having issues with My Daughter and her Mother so that is some of the reason I've been gone for some time.

I am doing great. I will get a lift for my shoe next Thursday. Can only move forward from here! Today went well. Friend took me to get bloodwork (for warferin) and then grocery shopping. Dinner was wonderful Thai noodles with peanut sauce with chicken and cucumber and cabbage, fresh raspberries for dessert. Lots of noodles left for an few more meals this week! The benefits of RNY one entre spread out over many meals with added protein!
I love the ability to take a nap when tired.

Moving forward with a good attitude.

I came home from Total Hip Replacement on Monday. I was supposed to only have plastic liner and bone head replaces but the surgeon found that the stem was lose (my hip is the old cembented style) so he re-cemented it and made my leg about 1 inch longer. It is really bothering my back and I will see my podiatrist next week to get a lift made for my now shorter leg. Needless to say I am angry about the lousy job my surgeon did. I told him that with my bad back even length legs was of high importance.
After the surgery appointments are complete I will switch to another surgeon for future.

Energy is good, PT told me to back off the walking as I was doing too much. I was told in the hospital that they did not see people recover from hip replacement so quickly. I was mistaken for a visitor frequently after day 2.

It will be 3 more weeks before I return to work.

Hope everyone is doing good. Just woke up. Hubby and I work nights and so sleep during the daytime. Off work tomorrow night so it will be great to get some things done in the am- hair cuts, store and finally getting my ears pierced. Hubby and I both need our hair trimmed.
The place for ear piercing does not open until 10am so that will be the last thing we get done before heading back home.

Congratulations on the surgery!!! Remember to sip, sip, sip! sugar free popsicles and pedilyte pops are clear liquid and good for crunch and fluids. Powerade zero another good one due to electrolytes which your body especially needs right after surgery. don't forget to let your body rest. It has just been through alot.

I think the 'hardest' part of my experience is coordinating what my mind thinks I should eat (what and how much) with what makes my tummy happy. emoticon

To quote a fellow SP: "When I eat crap, I feel like crap." Otherwise, WLS saved my life!

I didn't have much pain at all or any other issues.

I have given in to a couple of graham crackers every now and then. At work around 4am when we are starting our morning blood draw EKGs and I am running around on my floor (I work on our Cardiology floor here at the hospital-night shift.)-my blood sugar has been dropping about that time and my surgeon told me to get a couple of graham crackers for that.-or peanut butter and crackers.

Hi everyone. Just checking in to say howdy. The past few days have been quiet and I appreciate it so much because it has allowed me to catch up on some rest and other stuff that was needing to get done.

Back to work today.

I was proud of myself for remembering vitamins and packing a protein filled breakfast and lunch. :)

I am still struggling with the darkness of winter making me tired. Job stress is very high. I am doing better with family stress. Financial I was just given a at large rent increase again making it difficult to do more than pay rent, gas, & food. Plus I need 2 tooth implants at $$3,500 to $5,000 each. Not sure how to do it.
The good thing is I am slowly loosing the regain of last couple of years. It is hard to remember that I am 4 1/2 years out from RNY.

Wishing all of you a successful new year.

Karri, my surgery is scheduled on Wednesday the fourteenth, right after yours! I don't have to do a liquid diet until twenty four hours prior to surgery. That must be miserable. Bless your heart.

I took the day off. It was -8 and snowing, and there was nothing important to do, plus, it was nice to hang out with the kids since they are out of school. I got some laundry done and bathed the dog and now I'm putting together a new workout playlist. :)

I wear one saying-No Blind NGs, and no aspirin.

They cannot do a normal NG insertion as that would tear the pouch-to be able to put an NG if ever needed they would have to do it under the scope.
And no intubiating. The stomach is smaller and not in the normal position.

I work in the hospital and you definitely need to have that known.

My niece said she was told to wear a medical alert that she could not be intubiated following surgery due to risk of tearing the small stomach. Has anyone else heard this or other risks that should require a medical alert warning.

Welcome to our team. I found some older threads helpful such as shape wear. Glad you are being so sucrssful with your loss. There are so many benefits. I sometimes feel like the spokesperson for the procedure. A person considering the surgery should be educated on risks and benefits and know it isn't magical.

Hello all, I'm new to this group and just wanted to drop in and say howdy. I had RNY in August of this year and as of today, I have dropped 90 lbs. It is nice to have a group on Sparkpeople of people who have also had the surgery and get that RNY is a tool, not a magical cure, and that it still takes hard work and dedication to lose the weight and get healthy.
I used to be super active with Sparkpeople in 2007 and miss the community that I once had here, so I'm hoping to find a group that is active and supportive.
Thanks! Ask me anything, I'm an open book. :)

hi everyone,

and HAPPY Saturday, yeh!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

Glad we made it thru the holiday emoticon

it is Saturday and I am sleepy.... why? because I watched a YouTube video on how to remove makeup and make ones eyebrows and lashes grow longer at the same time... how? by using coconut oil to remove make up which also moisturizes the eyebrows and lashes.

problem: putting oil on my eyes or eye area = makes me soooo immediately sleepy. emoticon emoticon


so clearly I can NO longer put any oil on my eye lids or eye area, JUST my eyebrows LOL

Somehow, I lost several pounds this week. Not sure how. With baking for Christmas, find myself indulging in licking spoon or knife when finished; something I have not done in years. Old habits are hard to kick. I have been good not over indulging in my treats.

For Christmas Eve, my contributions are Vegetable Beef Soup, Olives wrapped in chicken and rolled in crumbs bake and wrapped pigs in a blanket. Christmas Day I am responsible for the salad. All family bring snacks. Doing last of my baking tonight.

Hi everyone emoticon

Hi cindy K... hoping your month goes well during the holidays, smiles.

Hi smiling eyes and carol ... congrats on both your anniversaries, yeh!!!!!! emoticon

Hi .... Patty I think it is normal for some of us to indulge in comfort food :)


emoticon an idea to keep the interest going on this team is to maybe talk about REAL - LIFE struggles on the journey (physically, mentally and emotionally) ~ past or present and I don't see people talking about the month long stalls, etc.... and how is it that SOME people can eat normal amounts of food and people like me STILL can only eat in small amounts and they are at the same time-length from surgery like I am. how come their stomach stretched and mines didn't after 4 months? stuff like that.... but I don't hear nor read stuff like that... what I read about is the joy of having had the surgery and the scale going down, etc.

Am I grateful for having the surgery, YES.... but sometimes its kind of hellish as well.


emoticon FOR EXAMPLE: No one ever tells you about the possible depression and crying episodes that one may experience as they ADAPT to a small stomach and missing the VOLUMES of food or even eating NORMAL size portions like other people emoticon


emoticon I think I will get back on track come Jan 1st... or sooner emoticon



emoticon I thought about joining weight watchers but how can I explain that I am UNABLE to eat like them in regard to portion control and what they eat? I would love to go to the weekly meetings but I cant share my situation because they just wont understand.....

emoticon I remember when I USED to go to WW meetings.... they would frown upon those who got gastric bypass and advised AGAINST it and they would frown upon those who did the Jenny Craig program saying that they make you starve at ONLY eating 800 to 1,000 calories per day.... the Leader seemed to be judgmental or criticized other programs OTHER than ww and the group followed suit.

I weigh weekly. No need for daily.

They tell me at the surgeon's office just to do it weekly-not daily.

One of the reasons I wish to be a lifetime WW member is to have monthly accountability. Every six months at a doctor would not be sufficient. I tend to weigh daily. The WW had their last meeting last evening in this town so will have to travel to Joplin but we go there almost daily anyway. Sat my goal at 135 which is in normal range. This seems doable.

I hope everyone has plans for the holiday. How to handle food issues. How to get in exercise and water. How to be thankful for all that we have and are.

What are your plans for: Thanksgivng emoticon and Xmas? emoticon **


Thanksgiving plans =

* I plan to go to Walmart on Thanksgiving Day

and stand IN line @ 4pm for the 6pm Black Friday sale that begins at 6pm.

WHY?

For a 50-inch Emerson Television that is on sale for $218.00 emoticon

It will be worth standing in line for it... emoticon emoticon emoticon
and they have the 1-hour guarantee... that if you are online and you get to the front and they run out of t.v.'s then Walmart will give you a ticket GUARANTEEING you that same t.v. by Christmas! emoticon

so YES I am getting a 50-inch T.V. for ONLY $218.00 plus tax, yahoo!!!!


Tomorrow: 11/21/14 I will partake in a Thanksgiving luncheon at work emoticon and NOT overdo it... absolutely NOT.


emoticon Christmas.... I will be enjoying my new 50-inch t.v. emoticon



NOTE: ordinarily I would have piged out on the Holidays but NOT this year..

this year it is NOT about the food for the first time in my life...

it is about being alive and being Grateful, hugssssssssssssssssssssssss

It is about celebrating LIFE!

New week, new start!

I'm trying to get back to my routines that helped me be successful - like reading and posting here.

Nov is a tough month for me emotionally - it's been 1 yr since my dad passed & 2 or 3 since my beloved aunt passed. emoticon

My food choices are getting better and my activity level is slooooowly getting higher.

Happy Day!

JMORRIS85,
You need to share your concern about coffee with your medical team. They may be able to help you find a way to deal with staying awake. Your medical team will help you figure out what is best for you and your medical conditions.

One of the biggest problems after surgery is dehydration, coffee, caffeine will cause you to pee out your water intake. They want you to get 64-84 ounces of water in a day which is hard to do especially when you cant drink 30-40 minutes before or after meals. You can have your coffee just make sure you drink 8-16 ounces of water for every cup of coffee.

She told me that people were waking up after surgery with bad headaches, and that they realized that the ones who were having the headaches were coffee drinkers.

I have narcolepsy, and the medication does not work well enough by itself. I usually wind up drinking a pot of coffee just to get through the day. Without coffee, I can not stay awake to drive or to work, and by the way, I commute an hour one way to work.
