Be sure ! if you want to have the Gastric Bypass.. My story

Life after Weight Loss Surgery

My life after Bilopancreatic Diversion Duodenal Switch

Who ever is contemplating getting the gastric bypass should really talk to a few people who've had  the surgery already.  I honestly would of not done the surgery if I knew about the Ketogenic Diet.  It's true you lose a lot weight in a short period of time.  The downside is dealing with the risks.
Baldness due to the loss of hair no matter how much protein and vitamin you take.
Stomach problems are the most mayor issues:
v Chronic flatulence diarrhea, excessively gassy, IBS, possibility of getting hemorrhoids, and the dumping syndrome.
Anemia if you are anaemic already like me, you will definitely might need several blood transfusions.  I have had 7 blood transfusions since my surgery.
Strangulated hernia and bowel obstruction.  I almost died I was 22 days admitted and 14 days of the 22 in the ICU.  I lost 63 pounds, my weight 122 the lowest I have ever been in my life.

You will need to take a whole bunch of Vitamins for the rest of your life. Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, multivitamin, Vitamin D3, Calcium, Biotin, folic, and Iron.
Protein intake 80 grams every day.
Your stomach is very small the most you can eat is the size of an egg and drink the size of a medicine cup.
This surgery will not stop your emotional eating or binge eating.  Basically, you are on your own.  It’s not like the Keto, a community where you constantly have support and advice from others.

Halloween 210 165 pounds

I gained 80 pounds back after Lupron therapy to treat uterine fibroids and afterwards was diagnosed with chronic Neuropathy which I spend a year bedbound and wheelchair bound. 
This year in the search for low carb diet I have come across the Ketogenic diet.  And I decided to give it a shot nothing to lose my mentality.  Honestly, it has been the best decision ever.  The Gastro doctor in Florida had advised me to do a revision of the gastric bypass.  I refused to go through everything I went through.  So this is my reality, no bull crap story, just what I lived through.

Binge Eating

Eating became my haven since my childhood.  Food became my comfort to fulfill the loss of my father.  One minute I lived with my dad and with the blink of an eye I wasn’t.  I suffered the bad choices of my mother’s vendetta towards my father.  My world was turned upside down when I was taken to another state to live.  As a child to be faced with this cruel reality was hard to comprehend.  I was faced with living with complete strangers even if they were my family members.  My father was a strict dad but protected me as much as he could.  I was brought to a dysfunctional home where I was mistreated.  Add to that household alcoholism emotional and physical abuse.

Definitely I grew up with major emotional issues that I’ve carried throughout my entire life.  Still up to this day those scars lay heavy on my soul.  From time to time I struggle with these demons even though I can cope with them better.  I must say Ketogenic lifestyle has taught me to have a little more self control.  This is my biggest struggle to let go of food for comfort and learn to eat for pleasure.  A major turn around can’t wait to completely heal as I adjust to this life changing experience.
