Had gastric bypass 3 years ago and REGRET every bit of it!

Had gastric bypass 3 years ago and REGRET every bit of it!

Postby Houston36 » Wed Apr 01, 2009 4:08 pm

I had gastric three years ago and am sicker today than I ever have been. If I knew now what I would be going through I would of never had the surgery! I am not knocking the surgery. I think it is a fabulous and much needed tool for those in true need. At the time of my surgery I was only 270 with NO medical condition. I was just fat. I thought I did my research but I obviously didn't. I am in the club of the 2% who have severe complication. My list of complications include - three back surgeries, chronic pain, migrains, anemia, severe depression, anxiety, blood transusions, iron transfusions and so much more. I have done everything that was advised by my doctor. I have been pretty much disowned by my gastric doctor because he states that everything I am going through is all in my head and not related to my surgery. BS!!!! I have a team of doctors I see on a regular basis just to keep breathing. I never took a pill in my life and I am currently taking 12 differnt medications. I have a psychiatrist, hemotologist, pain management doctor, spinal surgeon, nutrictionist, chiropractor and more I think. I have to have regular iron transfusions (every thee months) and have to give myself two B-12 shots every week. Unfortunately, having this surgery has changed my life and not for the better. I look great but feel horrible. I wsh I could get it reversed.

I understand how anemia, the need for transfusions, etc. could be related, but back surgeries? Isn't it more likely that back surgeries would be related to excess weight before the bypass?
