Got a question... Does anyone have a good P90X Medifast menu planned? Thanks for any response. 2nd question I got is.. Hello again. I have been so ill so not been on here but would like help please..

My friend here in the UK has been told by her gastric band surgeon that after 5 years nearly all of those who have had the bypass need it re done as they have gained so much weight. Is this true?..

Yup, although you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else to confirm it as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you call the Medifast guys because they can give you help better...

Maybe HIS patients do, but that is not the norm...

No, it isn't true, but the number is sneaking up on a quarter!.

It does happen, Many people get to goal or close to it and let their guard down, and then they find themselves in trouble again..

I was told from the time I was little to "listen when people talk, but only give it the weight of a grain of salt". If it is important enough you will collect grains of salt and it will make that info useful..

All rumors start with a truth, they just don't stay there very long..

God Bless!.

I have actually heard the exact opposite. My doctors have told me that the long term for the.

Lap band.

Is not every encouraging. We all know that there is a lot more work to be done when having the.

Lap band.

Than GBS. A lot more Dr's appointments, fills etc. The statistics show that by the five year mark.

Have gained weight back There are hospitals in my area that won't do the.

Lap band.

Because of the discouraging long term data..

That's not to say that there have not been many.

That have been very successful. They have worked very hard for that success. GBS.

Work very hard also but it is a little different for us, not easier just different. Whether you have had.

Lap band.

Or GSS we have made a life long commitment to change and be healthy. It is up to us to use the gift we have been given to the best of our ability. Good luck and God Bless to all...

I haven't heard that at all. I just googled some statistics that showed more than 90% of people are successfull in keeping the weight off at 5 years after bypass. And actually have read, and met people here, that have had the band then 5-6 years later need the bypass because the band isn't approved for long term use, like 10+ years...

Very many thanks for all your replies and I have passed them on to her. You're all brilliant...

O.k. when five years or so goes after having the gastric bypass, people say you need to make lifestyle changes, well if it were that easy, why couldn't overweight people make those lifestyle changes BEFORE they had the.

Surgery.

? I am two and a half years out from gastric bypass. And OMG what an elation the first year and a half I FELT GREAT, SO MUCH ENERGY, SO MUCH SELF ESTEEM, I WAS RUNNING/WALKING 6 MILES A DAY. FELT GREAT, AMAZING, NO PROBLEM, THIS WAS A MIRACLE, JUST AN ABSOLUTE MIRACLE. Now I feel the same as I did before the.

Surgery.

AND I TRY SO HARD TO.

LOSE WEIGHT.

, DRINK PROTEIN AND.

EXERCISE.

AND IT IS NOT WORKING, I TRY TO STAY POSITIVE, I PRAY, I.

EXERCISE.

BUT I KNOW IN MY HEART AND MIND THAT IT HAS CHANGED. IT HAS BECOME GRUELING. NOTHING IS WORKING AND I AM EXPECTING THE WORSE, SO I GET MORE DEPRESSED. MAYBE IT IS MY BI-POLAR. DON'T KNOW. I JUST PRAY TO GOD I DON'T GAIN IT ALL BACK.

I AM SOOOO SCARED...
