Sleeve to mini revision questions



Recommended Posts

Question for anyone with sleeve to mgb revision:

Did you taste buds change again after revision?

Did you go through food phases at same rate? Liquid to soft to solids, etc? Like after sleeve it took 6 months before I could eat lettuce again. Should I expect same?

Thanks

Yes the progression is the same, I think I did 2 weeks liquids, 2 weeks mushy and 2 weeks soft. I can eat anything/everything and I’ve never had much restriction, most of my weight loss/maintenance comes from the malabsorption now. Also too much sugar/dairy makes me sick . Check out the fb group MGB, lots of great info there !

Thanks! I’ve tried to join the group on fb but been waiting a month and admin hasn’t added me.

Revision is so specific it’s been tricky getting info.

I am VGS considering MGB. I’ve had such a hard time finding out information from fellow patients. I just joined this forum, I’m hoping to find some answers here.

      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
