Dear Misbee
I trust that other Readers who have had gastric bypass surgery will give you feedback. You can check the 'Diet & Nutrition' section of this Website and do a Search with 'Gastric bypass surgery' or 'Bariatric surgery' to read articles on the subject. Also check the 'DietDoc Message Board Archives' because awhile ago a Reader reported back regularly about her gastric bypass surgery and how she was progressing. I hope that the latter info is still available in the Archives.
Best regards

I had a gastric bypass done in July 2010 and it was the best gift I could have given myself. I weighed 110 kg and to date I have lost 45kg. I think my success has been that I followed my surgeon''s instructions to the T. I also went to a super dietician and again followed her instructions. My health has improved dramatically. I no longer take blood pressure medication and I no longer need to inject insulin twice a dayfor my diabetes, I only now take one Glucophage tablet at night. If you are in Johannesburg please include your tel no. and I will phone you. Good luck. You won''t believe just how easy it is if you do what you are told.
