Surgeon didn't complete my Gastric Bypass surgery!



Recommended Posts

I just had my bariatric bypass on 2/26/18... I stayed overnight at the hospital... I’m doing well except for the pain where one of my cuts is... When I’m sleeping and take my pain beds I sleep... But when I wake up the pain is almost unbearable. Just took my pain pill now. Take an hour half to work. I know part of it is gas. Has anyone had the same experience....Help!!!




This has nothing to do with your surgery and this post does not give any information that is helpful to your situation. Either post a new OP or find a forum and board with the correct information. This is about an aborted rny surgery due to adhesions. It has nothing to do with pain medicine, management, or gas pain.

Numinousvessel I was worried about you, not all those other people. My road to my RnY has turned complicated also but I want to be here for you just as a friend. I can tell you my problems at another time, suffice it to say I got kicked to the curb by my bariatric program after completely doing all requirements. Now I must enroll in another program if They will accept me. So we have a commonality there. I will listen if you want to talk more.

Hi @numinousvessel - and thanks for the message.

There are a few people here stuck a bit in limbo - they and you have my huge admiration at how you all manage a wait without knowing.

You might find it interesting to read the thread called “Out with the old in with the new” by fluffychix. Her wait was extraordinary, until she got surgery just a couple of weeks ago.

Take care, my friend.

Hello everyone. I have had some set backs. I was declined as a patient at tricentennial in Nashville as they believe I have Crohn's disease due to the surgeon's report and all of my test results that span years before I decided to have surgery. My home clinic has specific paperwork about mental illness and declined me as well, but it was terrible. I am now currently back with Dr.Wegner in Memphis. He has agreed to the sleeve. I start my pre-op liver shrink diet again on the 27. My surgery will be may 18. Hopefully, all will go as planned and I can look back on this and not feel so emotional or broken. Thank you all for your words of encouragement.

So sorry I know how you feel. I was opened up for a sleeve and it was cancelled due to a large hiatal hernia. So pissed off! After 2 weeks on a liquid diet and total terror I wake up with nothing done! And I still have to recover!




Hi,

Your doctor didn't see your hernia in the EDG?

I certainly hope so. This is exhausting and I am sure you know how that must feel. I do not get on here very often, but I have found the Instagram community is better for me. It's the same handle on here, if you have one. [emoji171]

I had so many adhesions that it took to surgeon Two and a half hours to break through them and he was almost at the point where he was going to open me the old way but he finally got through and completed the bypass and repaired a hiatus hernia and did a partial gastrectomy all laproscopically so don't give up. It took six and a half hours but it was done and I have lost 93kg in nine months

93 kg that equals 204 and 6/10th pounds. Any way you look at that, it's a dynamite loss. Good on you, my dear!😝👍
