Over 3 yrs after RNYGP & Going Strong!

I had the op in Hamilton, Ontario under OHIP program +3 yrs ago, best thing I ever did health-wise. Feel like I'm 30 years younger. A1C consistently at 5.6-6.5, only negative is having to take Vitamin D supplement. Not for everyone. Eating is still a project requiring willpower and planning. Not drinking before, during or after eating is tough, still, but I do my best.See More

"thanks so much for all of your kind comments. I still do identify as a t2d and advocate in favour of us when I get a chance. Best part apart from what my wife would say? I can run a bit now. I play old timers slo-pitch and loving it."

+ 3 yrs from Roux-en-Y Never better!

It's been a long time since my last posting, but only because I don't feel like a t2d anymore. Just had my 3 yrs. post-op and everything is very good, all nos. are great, I feel great, one of the best things I've ever done. A1C consistently 6.0 - 6.5. Weight is within 10 lbs of my low after op, work at exercise and small portions, but is small sacrifice for overall success. I eat almost everything, only thing that disagrees with me is Thai & Chinese food. cheers!See More

Almost 12 months from roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery, all better than A-OK!

Posted on March 17, 2011 at 12:19pm 2 Comments

Just a short note for those interested, that all is great with my op and post op health - I'm the best I've been since my early 20's, in every way, know what I mean, a nudge is as good as a wink, know what I mean? Dropped insulin day of op, dropped metformin to half, taken w/supper, reduced lipitor to 1/2, cut lipidil and bp med by 1/2, but bp was 95/65 at last MD visit, so told to drop lipidil and cut back bp med. Feel great and am steady at 203-208 weight, but with better weather now, will do… Continue

7 months after roux-en-y surgery update

Posted on December 20, 2010 at 6:24am 1 Comment

My six month check-up was great, everything in normal range, all vitamin levels, choresterol(sp?), A1C glucose was at 5.65, and last bp at my own doctors was at 110/75.  My plateau seems to be at 210, which is fine by me - I can stop buying clothes for awhile, but not get any bigger.  Christmas will have the usual temptations - for me, the biggest is homemade nuts and bolts. I feel super and am trying to increase exercise level though it is hard to take long fast walks with my dog when it's…

Six month check-up after roux-en-y gastric bypass - effect on type 2

Posted on November 20, 2010 at 7:41am 4 Comments

Yo! I've not been too active with this site lately, but thought I would add a comment about my latest and six month checkup after my surgery. I'm at 211, and all test results are in normal range. I had a bit of a Vit D deficiency but that has been rectified with high dosage pills I took for a short time. I feel great, love buying new, normal sized clothes (went from 52 to 42 in pants so far) and having lots of energy. I want to be re-tested for apnea, as I'm sure to be almost apnea-free now… Continue
