I had gastric bypass surgery in Birmingham, England about 5 years ago. I loved the weight that dropped off… I lost 9 stone (126 lbs) in total. But over the last 2 years I have put on nearly 3 stone (42 lbs).
I am so low and am on antidepressants. I don’t want to go out… all I can see it he fat person I was and am rapidly heading back to. I feel so useless and hate that I can’t deal with this sanely.
Please don’t think “how dramatic” and laugh. I really need someone’s help. I’m 49 and have no friends, and I don’t find it easy to socialize and meet new people. I can’t work due to depression and osteoarthritis in most joints. I also have osteoporosis due to lack of absorption of calcium and nutrients.
I can’t get funding for further treatment, and my local hospital does not deal with bariatric surgery or problems. I can’t raise the money personally because I’m on benefits.
Where do I go from here? I was not warned about putting weight back on… that’s why I had major surgery instead of a band.
