Sleeve to Mini Bypass Slow Weight Loss



Recommended Posts

Hi There MGB Peeps!

I think I am being a good sport, but this slow losing really has me discouraged. I am now 3 weeks out and have only lost 10 pounds since surgery day . I know they say revisions lose more slowly, but this is the pits! It's very frustrating when you see that others are losing 20-30 lbs. the first month. I know I am nowhere near on track to deliver that kind of result. Anybody else having a similar experience?

Don't be discouraged. I've read that it is usually slower the second time around. This time focus on making healthy, lasting change to your eating habits.

I'm hanging in there. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. This forum does so much for me. It's like "walking the halls" full of people just like me.

A second surgery will never lose at the rate as a virgin surgery will, at the same time, you don't have that much to lose to begin with. Hang in there.

Thank you so much Meryline! I really appreciate the encouragement. I know we are told not to parallel our journey with anyone else's, but it so hard not to compare myself. With the help of all of y'all, I am re-focused on ME and MY unique journey!

Severe GERD, very severe. I hadn't slept on my back in years, I was throwing up blood, esophageal damage, etc. It was a nightmare@
