Has anyone be re-sleeved? Revision ?!



Recommended Posts

Hi there I'm Elaine 29 years old I had a gastric sleeve operation April 2014

I was 5,1 and weighed 16 stone

I got down to 15 stone before weight loss stopped .. I never felt restriction like other people did

I'm really scared of having the RNY I plan to retry BariatricPal surgery in 2017

Here's my sleeve I had first time the uk nhs said it was t done properly and healthier weight in Manchester backed this up after taking this x Ray

Here it is

I'd love to hear from people who had a re sleeve or revision in general post-302488-14785502450796_thumb.jpg

So would a surgeon re sleeve you if they are saying it was done properly? I mean, how much more could they take? Most people revise to an RNY. I'd be curious to see if anyone else has been re sleeved also.

Why not evaluate what you are eating instead of another surgery? If you aren't eating right another surgery isn't going to save you.

I am curious also what they think they can do with a resleeve if it was done correctly. I have a very dear friend who also had a sleeve and never felt restriction. She was eating and drinking properly. After about 2 years, she got a revision to RNY. She has lost all the weight and has maintained for 2 years now. I discussed her story with my surgeon at first consultation and he said it is rare when the sleeve doesn't provide restriction but it happens. He still convinced me to go the sleeve route.

I think she's saying two docs have said it wasn't done properly.

I'm not any kind of medical expert, but the shape does look odd to me. I don't think it's supposed to be barbell-shaped like that.

I also think that you should have lost more weight, so maybe the sleeve just didn't work for you. It happens.

If it was me, I would think long and hard about revising to something else though, since sleeve didn't work for you the first time around. Maybe try a different procedure?

Yes, I see that upon reading. Doesn't change my friend's experience

To OP, I hope the revision works well for you.

Hi im actually having my re-sleeve revision today due to similar issues you stated in your post. I originally had the sleeve done in October of 2012. I haven't been able to find much information on people that have had a resleeve done. I will definitely give you as much feedback as i can through out my journey!

hi how are you . i had a sleeve done in 2014 but have since gained 35 lbs or more now but i am considering getting resleeved . did you get resleeved which mean they did it like the first time or was it a mini sleeve? this dr said i would probably need a mini sleeve but i haven't heard much good reviews ..

I wish you the very best .I was sleeved in 2011 weight went down and then put back on,now down again. Could I suggest that you consult a really good dietitian before you do anything.I didn't before I was sleeved but did after I put on weight again,it's how I lost eventually.It really got me thinking correctly about diet and tracking and really helped.

Surgery is an awful process that no one should go through again if it can be helped.

Sending you good vibes

Sure,

i would not reccomebd resleeve my first sleeve I lost next to nothing and even early out I was starving ... etc no chance of goal or anywhere near it which was 10 stone .. other sleepers blaked me not the fact my surgery was to blame (was too large)

second sleeve I got to goal in 4 months .. 10 stone .. I'm now 7stone 9 .. feel unhealthy have constant IBS .. gas .. vomiting every other day .. it's a full time job to not lose weight I don't feel hunger and most food I detest now .. I was never fussy .. the Protein Bars and shakes make me sick now I can't tolerate even the thought of having one .. can't eat bread need soft foods to eat .. can still eat nuts and seeds ! Which is my saviour I hate meat!

I regret it as I look amazing but feel like crap ! Being skinny doesn't make up for being exhausted and sick 99% the time !

Thanks for the explanation, the honest review, and hopefully the further out you get the better you will become.

Get well soon and stick around for the support!
