2nd Stage DS'ers - Can you please share your journey?



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved Aug 2012. I am a low BMI sleever: highest weight ever = 210, was 198 on the day of surgery, got down to 148 in 8 months and then started regaining, even though I was not doing anything differently. I still, to this day, have plenty of restriction. When I started regaining, I gained 26 lbs in 5 months and I've been stuck there since. I have been hovering between 174-178 for almost two years. Whether I restrict my calories, run and lift weights or do nothing and eat whatever I want, I remain the same weight.

I have been considering revision surgery for quite sometime now and will most likely have the DS. I am looking to hear from those of you who had the DS as second stage surgery. If you can please share the reasons you had the DS as 2nd stage, what you experience was like and most importantly your weight loss progress or experience with regain, I would greatly appreciate it.

      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!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
