Hi Katie,

Welcome to the forum.
I had my bypass 20th October last year and today was back at the hospital for a check and I have lost 9st. I was losing around a stone a month for the first 6 months then it slowed down then in June I lost my Dad and that was a glitch not able to eat without being sick so just went back to drinking milk and that worked for me. Between 4 & 6 months I lost a lot of hair, but had already discussed this with my hairdresser so was using Nioxin Shampoo and Conditioner with the desired results. I am no longer on any medication and my bloods are all normal. I am type 2 diabetic, had high blood pressure and cholesterol, I was taking 12 tablets a day now NONE. Was walking with a stick and not anymore, now running around playing football with my Grandchildren.
Downsides……. I keep buying new clothes, but then I need them cos I am going down in size. I was a 28/30 now 16/18 so very pleased just wish I had done it sooner.
It is a rollercoaster of a ride with your emotions but in my humble opinion it is well worth it.

Good luck with your decision
Look forward to following your progress.
