Hi Katie

You have had a rough time of it following your pregnancy, poor you. I had my bypass surgery on May 16th and am now nearly 5.5 stone lighter. My reason for the surgery was mainly to be able to be active with my twin daughters aged 2.5yrs. I’ve had very little in the way of complications following my surgery, but have had times when my energy levels have dipped into my boots – mainly due to running around after two little ones and working full time…oh and trying to keep up with my cycling mad husband!! lol Having taken my dietician’s advice and upped my protein and carb intake, i’m doing just fine now. Been on 30 mile bike rides something i wouldn’t even considered before my op.

I regularly attend a support group, and am inspired by those around me. I’ve heard very little in the way of complications from the 10+ or so people who are regular attenders so complications do seem to be rare. You don’t say where you live, so i’m not sure if there is a support group near to you, but if you can attend one I’d think you’d be surrounded by people who can share their experiences with you which may offer you some reassurance.

Tinks xx
