Thumbs up Diabetes type 1 and Gastric Bypass

The date is set.. October 30th is going to change my life. A very good specialist is going to perform a Gastric Bypass, to help me lose weight and to get better control over my diabetes. I hope you will support me and pray for me.

I know there are other options, but after a 7 years struggle and more and more overweight, I have decided it's been enough. It is so exhausting and depressing that my efforts don't give any results. That's why I decided on the GB.

Has any of you done the same?

The best of luck to you. Several people I know of have lost a lot of weight having this surgery done.

I think I need to place an update here. My endocrinologist is not willing to give his agreement on the gastric bypass. The operation has thus been delayed... I'm seeing other endocrinologists now, to hear other opinions on the surgery for type 1 diabetics. My surgeon and a Dutch endocrinologist are really helping me out, to find the best solution for me. They will not endanger me, they are really concerned about my health and they are trying to get as much information as they can get.

So I'm still looking for testimonies of T1 diabetics who have undergone a gastric bypass....

Hi, I am a 27 year old type 1 diabetic who had a gastric bypass 7 weeks ago. I was actually searching online for someone else who had done it when I found your thread. I would be happy to talk to you about it if you'd like! It's still new to me though

Hi Erin,

thank you so much for responding to my thread. I would love to know how you are doing and how surgery was. If you'd rather contact me via mail, feel free to do so.

Can you tell me why you have decided to have the surgery done? What was your BMI? Did you have difficulties to find a doctor who wanted to perform this surgery? Did it go well? How do your BG react? Do you have a pump or do you use syringes? .. I have so many things to ask. But most of all: are you ok?

Hi there!
I now have my surgery date, 08/02/2010 this is for 'Gastric bypass'. I am a type1 diabetic and have been for 31yrs now so a lot of things are old hat to me now.
I know that this surgery will drastically change my life and I would really like to hear from ANYONE out there that has or is going through similar.
I would really appreciate hearing how life really is after surgery.
Thanks
Shell

I don't know beans about gastric surgery, but I want to welcome you to the board, Shell . . . and I sure wish you well with your procedure. I've heard about some great successes with this. I hope some of those see this thread and tell us about it!
