    My Journey Starts

    Thank you Dave.... i just started pureeing soups which is working well. I never thought of trying Entrees. Great idea!
  3. Thursday it will be 2 weeks since my revision surgery on August 12, from RNY to Duodenal Switch. It was a 5 1/2 hour surgery, a little rough but my surgeon was able to do what needed to be done. I was in the hospital for 4 nights. So far since i've been home the only issue i've had with the surgery is one of my incisions started draining quite a bit. I went to the doctor to have that taken care of. It wasn't infected but to be cautious, i'm on antibiotics and gauzed up. I see the doctor again on Thursday. Mostly all pain is gone. I'm now on pureed foods. That is going a little tougher than i thought as far as what to eat. I'm eating slow but this morning i did throw up my breakfast. i don't know if it was just stuck or maybe the puree was too thick so i need to be more careful. I also see my nutritionist on Thursday, i know she will have good advice. I'm getting in my protein pretty good each day and really working in my vitamins now too. I will update after my Thursday appt. Also, does anyone have some puree recipes? Thank you! Karen

    Thank you Sunnyway, I am going to check into those books. I totally understand you. When i had my RNY in 2006, nutritional guidance was not that great. I also did research upon having this revision and my nutritionist is excellent. So far i'm doing everything the way i was told in regards to measuring everything. I don't get hungry even though it's not quite 2 weeks since i had my surgery. This is a second chance for me and i'm going to follow everything carefully. God is my strength too!

    Tomorrow's the big day

    Hi all, Well i survived my revision. I was in the hospital for 4 nights. There was scar tissue from when i had my gall bladder removed 35 years ago and working with the gastric bypass i had 15 yrs ago made it a 5 1/2 hr. surgery. I have a slight pain going on yet and still move a little slow. So, i am on the mend, listening to everything my doctor is telling me. I see the doctor and nutritionist august 26. i will finally go on to pureed food on Monday and i can't wait. i'm kind of tired of eating the same stuff on this liquid diet stage. Taking one day at a time. Thank you to all who have thought of me going into this surgery. It was a little rough at first, but each day gets better.

    Thank you GreenTealael 💕 Looking at your ticker, your doing awesome... yay !!
  7. RNY revision to duodenal switch. I'm a little nervous. I've started this journey in March so I'm ready. I hope to post updates as time goes on. I know God is with me and i feel very positive that this time i will make it to goal weight and keep it off. When i had my original bypass almost 15 yrs. ago, i didn't have as much guidance or knowledge that i do now. Much has changed over the years and I'm so ready. Is anyone else having your revision tomorrow or very soon. I'm here for anyone who wants to chat or vent or contemplating getting a revision done. My best to all of you. God Bless!
  8. Omgosh, ChocoSnowBunny, it looks like i posted twice to you, i'm sorry, i'm still trying to learn this site.
  9. Hi ChocoSnowBunny, First, so sorry to hear you had cancer, I can't even imagine how devastating that can be and praying you never have to go through that again. Second, I'm so glad you went for another opinion. My surgeon told me not to be hard on myself because of gaining weight back because it was the surgery that failed not the other way around. Patients with a very high BMI that have the gastric bypass, will most likely gain half or all weight back because it's not the right surgery but back in 2006, even though the duodenal switch was being done, it wasn't as popular as the gastric bypass. I researched this and my doctor was right. My BMI was 55 back then. Don't be hard on yourself anymore and there is nothing wrong with you. I hope you get your appointment soon. My best to you and I'm excited to hear about your journey also.

  11. Thank you Hop_Scotch, I feel very positive and thank God for this second chance. I will be posting my progress.
  12. Hi, I'm new to this site. I was hoping to hear from anyone who has had a revision from RNY to Duodenal Switch? I had Gastric Bypass surgery in 2006 but have gained half the weight back that I lost. The weight I lost was good but not near my goal weight. I'm scheduled for revision surgery 8/12/21. Thank you!
