Thank you for your insight about the weight loss.... Yes, I know there is a possibility that I will always be on CPAP, but I am hoping I am in the population who lose the CPAP too! If not, I won't be considered Morbid Obese anymore when I go to the drs. A maybe win/and a definate win!! I'll take my chances. ;-)
Sincerely,
Jennifer
Jennifer, I am cbramsey's wife...I also had bariatric surgery (same one, the BPD/DS, commonly known as the DS). I only had 50 something lbs to lose to get out of the morbidly obese to normal...my main co-morbid was diabetes not sleep apnea altho I had sleep apnea officially even tho I had had a UPPP to put it in remission. My apnea came back after I lost weight, so I did another type surgery called the LeFort/SSRO this past March.

What cbramsey failed to mention is while he didn't lose the cpap, he did lose THREE blood pressure meds, a cholesterol med, and some other medications. I lost the insulin, the cholesterol med, and 7 other medications. We exchanged prescription meds for vitamins.

Like him, I was great at losing weight, could not keep it off. Only 5% of the morbidly obese population is successful at losing and KEEPING their excess weight off according to an NIH study.

Hi there Liz,
I am also on a number of meds- 5. I am hoping to lose those too. It would be soo nice to just take a vitamin! Thanks for your imput!!! I'm going to be in those 5% to keep it off as I have long term plans with my eating and exercise. It's a lifestyle change.
Sincerely
Jennifer
