  • I like how he said that “if you’re African American you’ll lose less than Non-African Americans” without any supporting evidence like every other bullet point!!

  • My hip and a little bit above it hurts. It could be just hip or joint/muscle pain. Idk where my kidneys are or where the pain would be. Idk I’m not too worried about it.

  • I’ve had pain in that area (back under rib cage) which I suspect may be my kidneys and its constant, like they are bruised or something. But none of those other symptoms really. Any ideas what it could be?

  • My surgeon WILL NOT do the surgery if you smoke. He says why fix one of the top two causes of death if you’re going to continue to kill yourself from the other one?

  • I go to the bathroom alot. I remember a long time ago I went ALOT at night. But I’ve Always been like that so I thought it was natural.

  • Thank you so much for your videos. I had RNY in 2006 and had a goal weight set by my surgeon of 130. I was compliant and at the end of one year only reached 190. I was made to feel like a failure by my surgeon and left the program. I recently found a new surgeon who is helping me to lose the weight I gained and get back on track. He says my goal weight should have only been around 190 to begin with. He explained the reasoning to me exactly as you did in this video. I guess so much more is known now than 12 years ago. I WAS happy with myself and felt I could have maintained 190 if not constantly being told that I was a failure for not reaching my goal weight. Thank you again!!!
