I had mini gastric bypass in Tijuana Mexico with BariatricPal TeamMX. My surgeon is Dr. Selim Jalil Illan Fraijo. I've been recovering well with no complications.

I had a revision to the mini gastric bypass from the sleeve on March 31, 2016. I went to Mexico. I was scheduled with Dr. Illan but due to an emergency that morning (his appendix ruptured) Dr. Zavalza stepped in and did my surgery. No problems and I'm about 8 pounds from goal but smaller in size than I thought I would be.

I had he sleeve done 12/14. Since 18 mo the post op I have terrible heartburn and it gets so bad sometimes I vomit and it does t go away for over an hour. Even with prescription meds given for this reason.
I never had this before the sleeve. Would that be a reason to have the MGB? I'm so lost. My dr just keeps putting me o. Things . Carafate, 20mg Prilosec, liquid Zantac all hat wonderful stuff

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
