    Vsg to rny

    I went from VSG to RNY due to excessive GERD issues. Things have been good thus far....I'm about 6 weeks out...weight loss is slow but steady. I wish I had gone for the RNY first. I think that's where my greatest success on this journey will come from.

    Anyone get bypass surgery for gerd?

    I had VSG in July of last year....revised to bypass due to excessive GERD September 26th this year. Best decision ever!!!!!!
  3. I hate that you are experiencing such unpleasant episode. I disagree about it not sounding like dumping. I'm about 4 weeks out and this sounds very similar to what I experienced. I too thought it came out of nowhere but later found out it was dumping from 2 tortilla chips I ate like 30mins or so before episode started. I walked and walked, I took my gas medicine....pepcid and reglan. Took about 1 to hour to and a half but It FINALLY let up. The dry heaving was the worst.....thought I was going to detach an organ and spit it up. IT WILL PASS, I PROMISE. I agree that it wouldn't hurt to let you doc know though.

    Maybe that's my issue... not enough protein! I'm so exhausted most days and I'm 3 weeks tomorrow and geez I'm struggling! Any suggestions friends.. water and protein are extremely hard to get in. [emoji15] Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I'm doing okay. Still extremely fatigued though and having trouble getting enough water or food but getting better everyday. I also still have pain on the left side and the incision right above my belly button. Scale is moving but I still can't see it yet...apparently everybody else can. our bodies are peculiar machines...I have no doubt that you will get back to losing again. Stay in touch!
  10. I wish my surgeon had spelled it out to me in that way! He did tell me that a small percentage of patients could develop severe reflux but I had no idea that I would be amongst that small percentage! Geez...it was awful the last few months leading up to the Bypass surgery.
  11. Hi elcee, I had the band placed in 2006. Last year after years of battle and complications with my band, I revised to the Gastric Sleeve. Well since I always go big or go home (in my sarcastic voice) I had a stricture and severe heart band so was converted to the Gastric bypass almost 3 weeks ago. The eating for each is different but there is a definite difference in the lap band and the bypass. with the bypass, you have to take small sips of liquid...im progressing in introducing new foods. I can honestly say that even though I'm still in the early learning phases I wish I had started out with this procedure. It definitely provides structure and discipline in the new way of eating and making good choices.

    The premier protein send to more pose a problem for me. I lived in that stuff after my previous surgery last year but after this rny.... it tends to cramp me sooooo bad that it's ridiculous! I hate this because that was my only hope of even getting closer to protein requirement! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app
