I'm 53 years old obese and recently diagnosed with stage 3 CKD. I have many ailments and have been treated with many medications over the last 25 years but especially opiates for chronic pain. I have degenerative bone, disc and facet joint disease, as well as hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, spinal stenosis, siatica, neuropathy, stenovial cysts, gout, GERD, hiatus hernia, sleep apnea, Bradycardia, acquired Lymes and Eurlicliosis twice just to mention some of my issues over the last 25 years. My question is has anyone with CKD had gastrointestinal bypass surgery for weightloss? I have my first appointment next week and am a little nervous...go figure😁 I've been through hell with the medical community most of my life and am apprehensive because I had CKD stage 3 for over 3 years and my physicians never told me I found it in my records and approached them. It saddened and frustrated me greatly. I'm doing everything I can on my own to exercise, eat well and control my blood pressure, but struggle losing weight. So...I'm looking for answers regarding CKD and weightloss surgery. If anyone has anything to offer I greatly appreciate it!! I wish you all the best health you can obtain and hang in there...I am!
