I have recently consulted a local doc about gastric bypass. Wanted to know if anyone would like to share thier story.

I had the surgery two years ago. I did well from the surgery - no complications except for a hernia which I had repaired along with getting a tummy tuck. I will tell you that your life will change in a lot of ways and at first it is very scary because you have to be sooo careful until your new "Pouch" heals. This is also your honeymoon period of weight loss when you are losing a lot of weight because you can barely eat anything and also don't have an appetite. Unfortunately, this with time ends and you will be able to eat much more and have to resort to doing things right to keep the weight off. One piece of advice - they say you can dump easy on sweets and fatty foods - best thing you can do is not to tempt yourself into trying these because if you are lucky and find you can eat these then you have a new demon to fight. Hope this helps and best of luck.
