    frozengrapes got a reaction from Tracyringo in Hate bypass   
    I had the RNY about 7 months ago for the same exact reason, the GERD was unbarable. I also gained a little weight back from eating carbs to try and stop the burning. I lost about 25 lbs pretty quickly after surgery, but havent lost a lb in the last 3 months. I am happy with my loss and am about the same weight i was at lowest with sleeve. Sometimes I miss me sleeve because the full feeling just isnt the same. Sometimes I think i eat a bit more because I dont have it. But in reality I think im eating about the same.

    Same surgery date and have only lost 15! I do not have a lot to lose so I get it, I just thought it would be more when eating 750 high Protein, low fat, low sugar diet. And If I cant lose on a post diet, diet, then what? And yes I exercise.
    On a positive note I have had normal blood sugar and off all meds since my first surgery. In 4 years with the sleeve was able to keep most of the weight off.

    I just had a revision on 3/9
    I had a sleeve 8/2016. I lost 50 lbs. I had GERD before the sleeve but not too bad. The first 2 years after sleeve my GERD was nearly gone. BUT then it came back with a vengeance. It was awful, waking from sleep with bile in my throat, burning all day everyday, and the tightness in my chest. Top that off with a hernia and a fold in my sleeve. I started gaining weight back because crackers and bread were the only thing that made me feel better.My Dr gave me 2 choices, live with it, or do revision.
    I lived with it for about 8 more months and could no longer do it. I was honestly afraid to do another surgery.
    I am in week 6.5 post surgery, and am very disappointed at my weight loss so far. I lost 13 lbs, the first 3 weeks and only 1-3 the next 3 weeks. I'm only eating 700 cal a day an losing nothing. AND I have had days where I have some GERD. I am taking my meds and they help but I thought I would have none.
    The biggest issue I have is the fear that I feel totally different. With my sleeve I felt full really quickly and knew when I was full. So far I feel like I can eat more, I haven't, but I feel like I will be able to. I don't get the same feeling.
    My thought was that at least I'll lost weight after doing this again, but it doesn't seem like that will be happening.

    I agree, not having the restriction makes it a lot more difficult. I'm eating less, excercising more, and the weight isn't coming off at all like it did. My metabolism hasn't change, and im more hungry than I was after sleeve. Self control isn't a problem right now, but I know if I do not lose weight it will become a problem.

    That was my weight loss about the 6 month post sleeve weight, which is when I stopped posting. I lost another 10 lbs , then gained about 10 back in the last year once my GERD got really bad. Almost 55 lbs, gained back 10, now lost 15. So, all and all 5 lbs less then before GERD. Original BMI 35.5

    Please don't compare the weight loss rate of a man to the weight loss rate of a woman. You're setting yourself up for disappointment.

    A few people know. My husband and 1 of my children, a handful of friends, and 1 co worker, and 1 sister. My father, other sisters and 2 of my kids do not know. Everyone else thinks it was hernia surgery (which I did have on my diaphragm)
    The diet I am on is for my hernia as far as they are concerned.

    @@frozengrapes You have a lower BMI than many of us - so your weight loss may be slower. You'll get there though - just stay strong and stick with the plan!!!!

    He told me Im doing well and not to worry about it. He told me the loss will be like steps and landings, not like a slide.
    Ive heard of the 3 week stall, but technically its been week 2 and 3 stall for me. I feel like im doing so well, not 1 cheat and doing everything possible and NOTHING. It will take a few days to get rid if the funk and the feeling that Ive wasted my time.
