Life after Weight Loss Surgery
My life after
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.
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.

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
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. Florida
