      Happy New Year Frank! Well its nearly been a year since i had the bipass surgery and i felt like i was in a cage right after the surgery and I still feel like i am in that cage..but the door is open now...i guess..where before it was shut and double locked! I have had a very rough year...down to 110 pounds and still loosing...frail and cant seem to get enough protien down..no matter how much i try...the best things i have been able to eat are mashed potatoes, yogurt, watermelon, fruit, and chicken noodle soup...i still get very nauseated and the vapor lock is still awful..just like the first week of surgery...How are you doing now??? abbie

      I do want you to know how much I appreciate you sharing your experiences. You have helped me tremendously, especially when I have one of those just feeling yucky days.
      I know what you share is what you have been through or gone through so I do not feel along.

      Thanks again for always being here..

      Happy New Year!!!!! :)

      I was at my three month check in today and they were saying that some people lose their hunger reflex after surgery and when it kicks back in after awhile it can come on very strong. They said if you are hungry your body is may need more food. You may what to talk it over with your doctor or dietitian.

      Hey Frank,

      I wanted to ask you how you are getting on.

      Hi Frank,
      Thank for posting. a like, for my exercise post. I was thinking of using that in a blog but am unsure if it would be bad form to reuse a post like that. I value your opinion so if you would like to comment I would appreciate it.

      Thanks Frank...I really appreciate this site...its helped me get the brain in the right place...was really worried for a couple of days there! I know a woman who is out five years with gastric bipass..she still cant look at soup...I have a friend who is out 10 years and he hates yogurt to this very day...and i dont want to get in that rut of eating the very same thing...getting on this site was the very best thing i have ever done...so far! Thanks...
