Has anyone be re-sleeved? Revision ?!



Recommended Posts

This is an interesting thread to me. I originally lost about 150 pounds. I never reached a BMI of less than 26, but I wore a size 8 and looked and felt good. Now almost 6 years later, I’ve gained 40 pounds that I can’t get off. I saw my surgeon and he is willing to redo my sleeve because it’s so big. I never felt like I had much restriction, but I was super careful and under ate, which is how I was successful. My doc has never never performed a repeat sleeve because he said he never had anyone with a stomach big enough to need it, but mine is. I’m on the fence about it...but I sure hate the weight I’ve gained. @Lainybee1987 experience a,es me nervous!

Hi I was sleeved in 03/16/15 has not over a 100 lbs but was sick the whole. I kept asking my Doc to figure out why. He never answered me just blew me off really. Finally was able to find an amazing Doc why cared. He did an EGD and saw that had obstruction in my esophagus in my pouch was not the shape of a banana but rather a triangle. He said was was sick and only going to get sicker if I didn't get the RNY. Had that done the 31st of January of 18. I've only lost about 30 lbs but since it's my second surgery the Doc said I'm doing just fine. And I don't throw up everytime I eat or drink.

Thanks for your response! That must have been awful. How close to goal are you? I saw my stomach and it looks pretty normal. As in like didn’t have surgery. I never felt restriction like others describe. However, I lost a significant amount of weight and felt really good. I’m afraid I will end up with strictures if I have another surgery. But I’m more afraid of being fat!
