Hi, My name is Gloria and I had my surgery 7 years ago. I am just browsing and wanted to post my success story. After my surgery I had lost 107 lbs and since then I have gained 12 lbs back and have been holding that for the last 6 years. My doctor seems pleased with that and I am happy with my weight. I still have trouble with dumping and use that as a reminder of what I should eat and what I can't. I live in Apollo, PA and if there is anyone that needs a little support, I would be glad to be an encouragement for you, as you could be for me. Please never hesitate to contact me. Sometimes it can get a little hard and you go with your head instead of your tummy. Remember the pouch is small and tempermental, but the brain still craves the foods that we shouldn't have. Be stronger than the brain hunger. We are women, hear us roar...
