  1. I have my VSG surgery date of May 18. I went January 16 to have RNY and I had complications that stopped my surgery and my surgeon is not comfortable doing the RNY but is with the sleeve for me. Anybody else scheduled for May 18? I am excited, but not nearly as enthusiastic as I was the first go around. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. May 18, but I had complications with an attempted bypass on January 16 and have been reapproved for the sleeve instead. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    Surgeon didn't complete my Gastric Bypass surgery!

    I certainly hope so. This is exhausting and I am sure you know how that must feel. I do not get on here very often, but I have found the Instagram community is better for me. It's the same handle on here, if you have one. [emoji171] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    Surgeon didn't complete my Gastric Bypass surgery!

    Hello everyone. I have had some set backs. I was declined as a patient at tricentennial in Nashville as they believe I have Crohn's disease due to the surgeon's report and all of my test results that span years before I decided to have surgery. My home clinic has specific paperwork about mental illness and declined me as well, but it was terrible. I am now currently back with Dr.Wegner in Memphis. He has agreed to the sleeve. I start my pre-op liver shrink diet again on the 27. My surgery will be may 18. Hopefully, all will go as planned and I can look back on this and not feel so emotional or broken. Thank you all for your words of encouragement. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    This has nothing to do with your surgery and this post does not give any information that is helpful to your situation. Either post a new OP or find a forum and board with the correct information. This is about an aborted rny surgery due to adhesions. It has nothing to do with pain medicine, management, or gas pain.

    Surgeon didn't complete my Gastric Bypass surgery!

    I am seeing a bariatric surgeon in my town tomorrow. He usually does not take on patients with bipolar disorder and I am hoping he will make an exception as I have met with him previously about my gallbladder. If it is a no, I have set up another appointment with my original surgeon but it isn't until April 18 and I would get a surgery date then. I also tried to get on with another office that does open surgery that is 4 hours away and after the surgeons had a meeting and reviewed my files, they decided that they would decline me bases on my surgeon's report from the day of surgery. I am not sure if it is caused by my autoimmune stuff, but I think it is chronic inflammation that has caused these adhesions. It has made my head and heart hurt too much to be on here or Instagram because everyone is moving and growing and changing. And here I am, stuck in limbo and on pause. I just sent this to biddynz. Also, why are you talking about something that is not related to my OP ? There are multiple forums and boards that could answer your question rather than this post about an aborted surgery and adhesions. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app
  7. I went on January 16 for gastric bypass. I woke up about an hour after being put under to a nurse in the recovery area telling me they did not complete my surgery because of complications. I have multiple adhesions and my intestines are stuck together so much that my anatomy does not look like it should. My surgeon did not want to complete the surgery until I could be told. He has given me the option to have him do a sleeve or for him to refer me out to someone who still does open bypass surgery. I cannot explain the mind f**k this was and the anxiety I am feeling. This is terrible. I knew something was going to happen or be found. I knew that I was right. Something was going to be found that would explain the symptoms I had had for years at this point. These adhesions do not show up on scans of any sort unless you have an obstruction. I have only had one other surgery in my abdomen and it was a laparoscopic appendectomy 10 years ago. He thinks it stems from chronic inflammation and autoimmune **** that I have. Has anybody had an open procedure for bypass? What's your experience? Or has anyone been opened up and not finished?

    Gastric Bypass in Memphis

    I don't know what the hold up is. I had to go to the outpatient area at St. Francis to do all of it. 3rd floor, I believe. They would not let me do it where I live in Mississippi. Hopefully it will not be an issue! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    It is normally 2 weeks after preop testing and registration that you would start your 2 week diet. I would email her and call her. She may be out of office again. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    Gastric Bypass in Memphis

    My insurance required another meeting in November with the nutrionist and the doctor. I assumed mine would have been in the summer. I got my surgery date at my last appointment on November 1. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    I am using them too. My surgery date is the 16 of January. Dr. Weaver left the practice when her contract was over so it is just Dr. Wegner. I have Betty Coble as my patient advocate. I started my journey with a surgery consultation on March 15, 2017. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app
