Hi Floyd,
I am now 17 months post bypass and life is wonderful, in fact not an hour ago my other half and I was talking, neither of us can believe it is 17 months the time has just flown by and he said can I honestly ask have you ever regretted having the op done and my answer was NO. You are so early stages, just had a major op, body still recovering and adjusting and you are at the baby stage of eating, further down the line life will return to as normal as it ever will be, you will have adjusted to what you can eat or can’t eat, I still have reactions to some foods but you learn to live with it. I am now nearly11 stones lighter and doing things I never thought was possible for for me, exercise for one and I am loving it never in a million years would I have said I would enjoy exercise lol. Life is wonderful for me now and it will be for you, just give yourself time, oh and like you I was on fluxetine, not any more don’t need them, in fact I am off all medication and I no longer need my cpap machine as no more sleep apeona. Give yourself time as I said very early days and as you start to see the benefit of your surgery you will start to enjoy the finer things of life. I go out for meals with the family, the first time was scary but now no worries, in fact life is now back to normal and it will be for you.
