    Hello2018 got a reaction from Frustr8 in VSG to MGB Apr 11, 2018 with Dr Illan   
    I am 31-wks post op, from VSG to MGB. Iam am down 60lbs. I do Keto and Paleo. I get food delivered to my home and prepare the meals. This helps alot to stay on track. I eat lots of salad! My dumping syndrome is maintained by limiting my sigar intake, I can tell when I start to OD on sugar. I can no longer eat flour tortillas, I cannot digest them as well as raw veggies. Broccoli is a horrible gas veggie for me and I cramp up. I cannot eat thick bread or pizza dough, even Bagels are difficult. I do eat a bite then I’m done.

    Excercise, I run now 3-4 days a week. Ran a 5K. I excercise regularly, 1mi a day, stairmaster, rower, weights. I am still loosing but at a slower rate now. I also have extremely saggy skin. I cannot change it no matter how much I exercise. I notice that I have to reset my exercise or food diet to continually loose or I plateau out.

    Any suggestions or revision experiences would be helpful please.
    Did anyone use an Abdominal binder?
    I made alot of mistakes the first go round with the sleeve, lessons learned. Grateful for a 2nd chance.

    Hello2018 got a reaction from Frustr8 in What length is your bypass?   
    Flew home today and it was quite a journey, it took 3 1/2 hours to cross the border almost missed my plane I felt like OJ in the airport and I was literally exhausted with no energy. I feel dehydrated. My pain during the flight was miserable. I felt more pressure in the air.
    Surgery was Wed, Apr 11 wt: 195, Pre liquid wt: 207. Friday checking out of the hospital wt: 210 Hoping that was all the liquids I was pumped with, 15lbs in 2 day. Too exhausted right now but will weigh myself in the morning.
    I can honestly say I felt worst after the sleeve in 2011 then mgb in 2018. Mbg was more tolerable for me and less pain.
    My overall length was 8ft for my revision. I’ve been drinking slow slow slow, my fear of dumping.

    I believe there are many factors for length sizing, height, ethnicity and if it’s a revision vs 1st time bariatric surgery. I’m scheduled for Apr 11 and discussed length size with my doctor.

    How long since your surgery that you’re below goal weight?

    I had surgery 10wks ago with the 7ft Bypass and dwn 30lbs plus the 11lbs from pre-op so 40lb also I was a sleeve to mgb revision so not a 1st wls surgery. I’m very content with the results though I can say I’ve dumped 4 times and was miserable, it takes 2 hours for me to throw up each time. I ate too fast but not bad greasy or sugary food. My stomach is finicky some days I know I’ll be on liquids because I’m nauseated all day. Learning each day

    Band to Bypass revision on March 21st. Loving my choice! Not as fast at dropping the weight as some folks due to having had the band already, but I'm so happy I did it. I haven't been this light in over 15 years.

    My surgeon said the average he usually does is about 1/3 or about 100cm. For me he wanted to do about 1/2 or 150cm to give my weight loss a little more momentum. He discussed this with me at my pre-op appointment and i agreed. My surgery was on the 27th of March and he ended up bypassing about 160cm!

    There is already a huge long thread dedicated to before and afters.. but it is such a fun topic I don't mind repeating!!
    This is what losing 150 pounds does for you! A girlfriend of mine said the sweetest thing "I didn't know you had a teenage daughter"...LOL. I do feel like I look younger being trimmer.
    Taken within the last few weeks

    This was taken in December i believe - I think I was 20# away from goal,back when I was a bit curvier. I was feeling pretty good, but, I like how I look better now even if my T&A disappeared since this photo was taken.

    This is my before picture at over 300#. I don't have much to say about it but I KEEP looking at my befores to remind myself how far I have come.

    I remember being pre-op and my favorite thing to do was look at progress photos and dream
    I am 6 months, 10 days post op and I am down 128 pounds total. This isnt a very great pic since I have been sick, but i still took it because anything is better than my before!!

    I had the sleeve 4 years ago but gained 40lbs back out of the 90 I lost. I just got Sadi exactly 2 weeks ago. I'm down 16lbs since surgery.
