First, congratulations on your weight loss. Although many people do not support gastric bypass....I do (just not for me). My best friend had it done several years ago (as did my brother-in-law). I did not know either at the time they had the surgery, but I know it changed their lives considerably and that both of them are happy with the results.
My best friend wants me to have it done (I might just barely qualify, but I'm not sure) and I'm afraid to have anything so drastic done just for weight control
In your situation, you were facing a life or death situation and I applaud you on your willingness to undergo such a permanent surgery.
As far as the pain goes, I do not know what to tell you. My best friend has some of the same issues you do (but she is also assurred that the problems are not related to the Bypass.)
I can only offer you encouragement and support in finding your pain source. It may take some time and you should not be afraid to be seeking the help you need. Your body is undergoing so many changes right now that I don't think anyone could imagine what you have been facing.
Please continue to seek medical care for your pain. You certainly don't seem like a med seeker to me, however, you must be especially careful because you have an addictive personality (ie...food). I remind myself that too, since I'm certainly not where I should be on the scales.
Good luck and keep us posted!
