Why did u need to do a RNY after doing the sleeve ? Was cod reflux too bad or did the sleeve not work anymore ?

I had GERD from the git go with the sleeve surgery. But more recently I have developed a fistula (a hole going from my sleeve to the remaining stomach) I guess they didn't remove the remaining stomach back then. I wish my surgery would hurry up because I a nauseous a lot of the time and they don't want me to lose weight prior to surgery.

I'm 65 and I'm getting a 10 year old failed lap band revised to a RNY in November. I was worried about my age but my doctor isn't too concerned about it other than having me get a cardiac clearance done in addition to the medical one.

Go for it! I had it at 61. Absolutely no regrets. I think the healing is somewhat slower than for the lap band, but it’s that way for everyone! Best wishes,

Oh I'm so glad I found this thread! I'm only (wow, I feel young!) 55 and my hubby thinks I'm too old to have the surgery. I'm going to have him read all of this thread to ease his mind a bit. Thank you everyone for sharing your experiences and stories.

Hello Everyone! I now 53, I had revision done from lapband to gastric bypass 12.10.18. Thus far I have lost 100 lbs. Sad to say i wish it would stop. Lol.

No major complication, now I am dealing with a lot of snagging skin, butt look like elephant legs, breast look like IV bags and arms look like a turkey neck.🙄. Health wise I feel pretty good. Wishing everyone the best of luck, please, please follow your doctor instructions.

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
