This post is for my dad. He had the sleeve procedure about 3 weeks ago amd developed a leak. He was in immense pain and the Dr. Had to then make a 10 inch incision on his stomach, go into his intestine and place a bag there which he would be fed into and he had to disconnect his stomach from his intestine while it heals.

The Fluid from the leak is now (3 weeks later) starting to reduce but he will not be allowed to eat or drink through his mouth for about 2-6 months. Once they check his leak has healed. He will then have surgery to remove the bag and reconnect his stomach.

Has anyone else had such a complication and of so what was the outcome?

Its so stressful as i recommended the surgery as i was very happy with it and now my food loving dad is nil by mouth till further notice :(

I think you need to speak to @RJ's/beginning.

She has experienced so much with regards to this procedure, her resilience is dumbfounding. What she doesn't know about complications - isn't worth knowing.

She's a lovely lady, so you will benefit greatly from talking to her.

I wish your father the speediest of recoveries and I'm so very sorry he's suffering like he is.

Feel free to ask us about anything if you need to. You're clearly a great daughter.

Hang in there and all the best :)

Thanks madam reverie. I need to find Rj clearly. I need to be geared with all the knowledge so when my dad is back i can keep him positive and as happy as can be. I know for me the liquid food stage was hardest so i cant imagine how it must be being nil by mouth. Thanks for the positive vibes.

Best of luck to you and your Dad. :)

I had a leak, also. They were able to not do surgery again and I didn't eat or drink for a month to give it time to heal. Mine was a pinhole size so it cleared a little quicker.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂

        Your progress with weight loss is awesome and so is your garden! I think you should've became a horticulturist. We've really gotten into gardening this year and it's darn good exercise. Keep up the good work and I'll keep watching. :D
