I had a Lap band, lost 126 lbs. + the 26lbs in pre-op diet, then I developed serious esophagus issues, had to remove all the fluid for a long, long time, and gained back 55 lbs. After my esophagus healed, I revised to sleeve (band removed and sleeve surgery all in one) and lost the weight I regained from having the band unfilled for so long. Later, I developed severe Gerd and was eating to tame the constant gnawing pain in my gut. I gained some weight back, but maintained a 100+ lbs. weight loss from my start weight at the beginning of my journey. 
In early August 2021, I revised to RNY due to Gerd/esophagitis issues. It is wonderful not to have Gerd. I am sleeping well, the best I have in years, and an added surprise, I am losing weight again. So far my weight loss has exceeded my previous VSG rate. I feel really good this time around. My appetite is more suppressed and have no issues so far. I understand everybody is different. I'm still on a learning curve on what I can or can not eat with this new inner rearrangement
