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.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
