Kelly,

I am so sorry you had such problems from your
procedure. I had RNY done 11-03, I had to have my gallbladder taken out
but that was my only complication. My problem is my pouch is stretched
out and I can eat too much leaving me at needing to lose another 73 lbs to
reach goal. There are many doctors out there taking to quick course and
trying to make money and it makes me sick! An in-experienced doctor
killed three patients due to negligence right after I had my surgery
done. I don’t promote the procedure, but it did save my life and I encourage
everyone to do what is right for them, including months and months of research
before making such a drastic commitment. It is definitely not the easy
way out. If you don’t mind me asking, what type of meals do you eat
in what quantity? I have thought of taking the cottage cheese test, but I
am scared of knowing I am stretched out to far.

<font size="2" face="Georgia">10.0pt;font-family:Georgia;">If ANYONE is thinking of having this done in the
future...please

please please look into it more. Plus the lap band is way safer then

this surgery ever will be. The doctors that do this surgery can

learn how to do this prodecedure in a weekend. Make sure they have

many many many hours of learning how to do this...so what happened to

me wont happen to you!!

Just thought I would share this with all of you.

Hope I am not rambling on.
