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.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
