Sleeve to Mini Bypass Revision



Recommended Posts

12 weeks post op from mini bypass. Haven't had labs done yet but I feel great and have had no problems. I was a revision so I think my weight loss has been slow but I've lost a lost of inches and I'm down from a tight size 16 to a 12. No regrets and wish I'd done this instead of the sleeve the first time.

Hi, same situation here. :( I was sleeved on August 2011.

At that time my weight was 210 and 4 months later my weight was 169 (41 pounds loss) after that no more weight loss,

Right now my weight is 192 (23 pounds gain). I am very disappointed with this whole situation, I feel that somehow my surgery was not correct. I read all the replies to this post and I am starting to look in to the Mini Bypass Revision,

but I do not think my husband or adult children will go for this.

I will go see another bariatric surgeon just to see if the original procedure was done correctly or not.

I have 2 friends that had sleeve surgery around the same time as me and they have lost 100 plus pounds, they are never hungry ( I am hungry a lot). How is every one doing after the Mini Bypass Revision? Does insurance cover this here in the US?

How much did it cost in Mexico?

Thank you

I am looking to have a revision from sleeve to MGB one due to acid reflux and not a very good loss with the sleeve. I was really disappointed in the WL but now really just want to get rid of acid reflux and get off the PPI.

Also I will have to go to Mexico for the surgery anyone recommend a doctor in Mexico and did the surgery help your acid reflex?

I have acid reflux since sleeve surgery in 2012 did the MGB take care of the reflux and if so is it still under control?

I am looking to have the revision in Mexico I see you used Dr. Illan was it a good experience and is he someone you would recommend. I really don't know who to use for sure in Mexico I really want to get off PPI meds and have no more acid reflux.

Thanks for your time.

Peggy
