Would You Have Weight Loss Surgery Again?   407 members have voted

  1. 1. Knowing what you know now about weight loss surgery, would you do it again if you had the chance to make your decision again?

    • Yes, without a doubt! The surgery has been everything I’d hoped for.
      235
    • Yes, probably. The journey hasn’t been easy, but I’m losing weight and feel that this was my best option.
      80
    • Yes, but I would have chosen a different type of weight loss surgery.
      14
    • No. I’ve had complications and my health has suffered and/or I haven’t been hitting my weight loss goals.
      18
    • I haven’t had the surgery yet, but I’m looking at the results of this poll carefully to help me make my decision!

Never!! If I had the cooperation of a doctor this pain in the ass would be gone.

Excuse my language, but Hell No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I call this the "little operation from Hell" ! Never got the results indicated and still became diabetic. The gastric gas is so BAD I may never find a partner to "put up" with me. I do take Probiotics which helps some.I eat so Iittle it is a wonder I dont look like a Biafrin ..(starving child in Africa) Thankfully I have not lost anymore because so far I have not had TT or breasts done! It would be a nightmare! The last visit to the doctor I told her that they are not making any more money off of my issues. I have supported them in the lifestyle that they are accustomed to living long enough! As far as I'm concerned they are all Quacks in the traditional medical profession and they don't study enough about what's new and upcoming so they just push the pills and expect you to get better... I am so done!!

Years done the road, I developed acid reflux, which damaged my esophagus, and I also suffer from sleep apnea. My heartburn is horrific. I also have a hiatl hernia, my surgeon wants me to have a revison to a gastric bypass. I am not sure if I would do it? Anyone here needing a revision?

So I ended up having surgery 3/15 and it was extremely tough in the beginning BUT I am down 38 pounds and am feeling so much better! I don't think anyone should rush into this decision. It took me 6 months to complete Insurance appointments and I am so grateful for that time - because I researched everything I possibly could about the surgery. Oh and since surgery I am no longer on my blood pressure meds or using my cpap.

Good job on preparing and losing the weight. It is amazing how fast our medical issues decrease or cease to exist. The hard part is making sure we change our maladaptive eating habits so we don't regain the excess weight we had. Our minds can really do a number on us. Keep eating healthy and don't let your head hunger get ya. CONGRATS!

I would have my RNY again and again!! Even with my hick ups from the Strictures!! I feel better than I have in many years!! I have maintained my 125#'s for over 3 years. I got below my goal weight in 6 months, I did gain 8#'s back. It made all the difference in the world. Who would think that 8#'s would be great!! YES every time. I won't say that I wished I would have done it years ago because I don't feel like I was ready at that time. It takes a lot of work to get where we have to go. Thanks for this group. It is one of the best supportive groups going.
