Anyone switched from VSG to RNY last minute?



Recommended Posts

So I was all set to go for my surgery and then I mentioned to the doctor that I felt like food got stuck in my esophagus and that took me down the road of getting an EGD and a esophageal manometry. EGD was fine but just go news the manometry revealed I do have issues with my esophagus not pushing food down properly. It doesn't hurt and really doesn't affect me but I am probably looking at having to switch to RNY. I feel like I know everything about the sleeve and nothing about RNY. I have surgery scheduled in one week. I'll find out for sure on Thursday what's going on and whether I have to switch surgeries. Just wondering if anyone else had dealt with this and switched so late in the game.

I didn't have a last minute switch, but went into mine not knowing which I'd end up with. I had a revision, dr said if there Is too much scarring I will do a sleeve, if it is fine, a rny. I wanted an rny. I found out when I woke up in recovery

I'm thinking of switching to RNY because I have Gerd. Have you found out what surgery you can get yet?

I am having RNY because I have acid reflux. I also love sweet foods and I hate feeling of being sick so I knew I wouldn't be tempted with sweets because I don't want to have dumping syndrome. I just felt the Bypass was better for me in the long run.

I just had my RNY 9 days ago and for the first time in years I don't have heartburn!!! There were times when it felt like a sip of Water would get stuck going down and now everything is Awesome!!!! It is night and day!!!

I did get switched to the RNY since my esophagus doesn't work right. I have no GERD, no reflux, nothing like that. Just my esophagus doesn't move food down towards my stomach like it should. I would say switching to the RNY is the scariest part of this. I was totally prepared for the sleeve but the RNY seems like such a bigger surgery.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
