Welcome all seeking refuge from low carb dogma!
“To kill an error is as good a service as, and sometimes even better than, the establishing of a new truth or fact” ~ Charles Darwin (it's evolutionary baybeee!)
I had a roux-en-y, 2001, and if I recall I just fasted for something like 18 hours before. I did have to have this procedure involving drinking barium and checking a picture of my intestines, but that was days before the roux-en-y.
Thanks dveej and welcome! The reason I'm asking is to sort of rule out flushing out gut bacteria in a post I'm working on re: insulin resistance. It's not focusing on GB, but I want it to address how GB seems to cure diabetes almost instantly in so many: http://carbsanity.blogspot.com/2010/12/gastric-bypass-surgery-diabetes.html Did you have diabetes or pre-diabetes? I'd be interested in your experience. Thanks :)
