Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with my results but, and this is the big one, I still have regrets, I didn’t know I’d have to take the stomach enzymes with everything I eat for life, due to complications this is me now having to swallow tablets as I eat with everything even snacks, IContinue reading “WLS Regrets”
Don’t read, contains bowel movements
Gastric Bypass Complication We are all warned, don’t eat high carb, high sugar food. Well I bought a high protein meal. One I should be able to eat but did contain some pasta and cheese, cheese we are allowed, pasta, depending on the type, not so much. I have been paying for this meal fromContinue reading “Don’t read, contains bowel movements”
Sneezing after gastric surgery….. ouch!
Oh no one warned me. I wish I knew. That’s sneezing would be so burning painful after surgery too. It started with a sniffle, grew to full on sneeze. The pain shot through my abdomen and had me on my knees. Weeks later it’s still burning. It really hurts to move. Six to eight weeksContinue reading “Sneezing after gastric surgery….. ouch!”
Bariatric side effect
Not for you, oh no, for your significant other/husband/wife/partner. My husband now complains that he is putting weight on because I’m self conscious about leaving my food if we eat out. It’s true, but I know he’s unhappy about it. When we are out I don’t always want to eat off the starter Menu orContinue reading “Bariatric side effect”

Feeling a little let down
I’ve had a great 15 day stay at the hotel NHS Hospital where I have seen first hand the hard work and effort the nurses put in to caring above and beyond their duties for those admitted. However, I’ve also experienced the miscommunication between consultants, difference of opinions resulting in differing advice and therefore ultimatelyContinue reading “Feeling a little let down”
Weightloss with surgery?
So I’m often asked if I could have lost the weight without the surgery. Without a doubt yes! IF I had known what I know now. I had Bypass surgery so what they did was take a small egg sized slice from the top of my stomach, route some intestine to it to create andContinue reading “Weightloss with surgery?”
This journey is still a struggle. From knowing I’ll never be able to eat a full size meal to surgery problems and hair loss, there are pitfalls I wish I’d known prior to going through with it. The worst is actually the body dysmorphia. I still buy clothes too big and feel big myself andContinue reading “Love Yourself”
Eeek, honest RNY post.
Off to see my new Bariatric surgeon who has been assisting me in the UK, Leeds, with the post operative issues I’ve been having. To say I’m nervous is an understatement. I’m unsure whether I will need another dilation to the stricture I had at my stomach exit, or maybe my current issues could beContinue reading “Eeek, honest RNY post.”
