  1. So I was advised to have gastric bypass to help with all the health issues I weigh 195. I did not qualify for gastric bypass for weight. I qualified for health reasons it would help with the fatty liver, diabetes, sleep apnea, Gerd high blood pressure,high cholesterol, sciatica, leaky bladder and I have ankylosing spondylitis. I was told I really needed this surgery, it would add years to my life. I was even fast tracked. My consultation was the first week in October and today was my surgery January 10. During surgery they discovered that my stomach had so many adhesion that they have adhered to my intestines that it was unsafe to do the surgery. I have not had a chance to talk to the doctor this evening but I'm so upset I'm not sure what to do now. As I lay here in the hospital still only on ice chips I'm in emotional mess.

  2. I was supposed to have gastric by pass yesterday. I woke up from surgery to find out that my intestines/ colon was covered in scar tissue. The Dr. Tried to remove the scar tissue but it was to attached to the intestines. So they aborted the surgery. Dr. Came in and said gastric bypass is not an option. Once I recover from this surgery then they will do the sleeve. I'm not real heavy (195) but I have diabetes, severe fatty liver, high bp, high cholesterol , sleep apnea, acid reflux, urine leakage, and a real bad sciatica from ruptured disk (try to avoid surgery with weight loss)and ankylosing spondylitis. Just to name a few. Dr. Said I have a lot of inflammation in the stomach. Weight loss will help this. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two surgeries will be good wise. Please pray for a good out come for me. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
