Weight Loss Surgery Complications: A new year – a new me?

Happy New Year!

I know I’ve been remiss about posting here regularly; but do get comments on my older posts – so I know folks are finding this site and still benefiting from previous posts.

Today, I want to give you an update on where I’m at in my post-op journey….

First, if you haven’t already, enter your name and email above to get my free report: The TRUTH About Weight Loss Surgery.  It’s eye opening and covers some very important things that could benefit anyone, regardless if they are pre-op, or post-op.

Now for my update.

I’m doing fair.  The reactive hypoglycemia is an ongoing issue.  I have to eat a little bit of something every 2-3 hours to keep my blood sugar stabilized.  My iron levels seem to have stabilized.  I changed my iron supplement to carbonyl iron with vitamin C, that I get from Vitalady.com and so far, that seems to be doing a pretty decent job at keeping my iron & ferritin levels up.

Since I have osteoporosis and I take Vitalady Tender Dry Vitamin D3-50 (50,000IU) once a week (also from Vitalady).  I also take Vitalady Tender Calcium Citrate Only 300mg(elemental) from Vitalady.  I do have hyperparathyroidism, which honestly is the bulk of my current complaints and health issues (click the link to read the list of symptoms – I have nearly every one.  Enough said – it’s not fun!).  This means I need to increase my calcium even more!

I also take a multivitamin, magnesium citrate, both from Vitalady.  I also take extra zinc and a sublingual liquid B vitamin supplement (with B12) that I get from Walmart.

Protein shakes:  my favorite is Champion Pure Whey Stack.  Not only does this protein taste great, it does NOT contain sucralose (NutraSweet), which I am allergic to.  Let me  give you a bit of advice about buying protein; get samples first!  What I love, you may hate – and protein is not cheap.  I like ordering my protein from Vitalady, because she offers samples!  So you can try before you buy a larger container.  ;)

Overall – I’m fair.  The hyperparathyroid symptoms are awful; but with increasing my supplements, I will overcome this and feel better.  To say that supplements are important is an understatement.  They’re critical.

    I had Gastric Bypass surgery almost 2 years ago and my health has improved DRAMATICALLY! Before the surgery I was 220lbs and 5 foot 0! I am now 135-140. My weight fluctuates because although the surgery changes the body it can’t change the mind and I have a difficult time mentally eating better which in turn causes some stomach discomforts. The only thing Ihave been having the take since the surgery is B12 shots.
