Happy you are doing great. Who is your doctor. Do you feel normal..

Hi Miss Apple, I’m still feeling a bit delicate. Overdid it a couple of days ago and am now paying with some back pain. Otherwise getting there.

I’m in the UK so I travelled to Belgium to see Christian De Bruyne. It was cheaper and he appears to have more experience than the UK surgeons do. I’m pleased so far the proof is definitely in the long term I think.

Biggest regret for me is that i left it four years from getting my band out to act. I was only ever going to end up back at my pre band weight. I should have done this years ago!

What’s making you consider a revision?

Glad to hear that you made the best decision for you. I have chosen to do the mini gastric bypass because I had the sleeve surgery in 2013 but had a baby March 2017 and can't get the 57 pounds off that I gained from the pregnancy after a year of trying. I had not heard of the MGB until I heard someone mention it on a Facebook weight loss forum. With something that is new to you you tend to ask many questions. Especially when you have to go under the knife again.😁But what I like about the surgery from what I hear you can achieve your weightloss goal and being a second time weight loss patient. As far as weight do you see any progress are you losing slow or do it pick up and then it slows down.

Yes! So far I’m very pleased (amazed even) with the weight loss. I thought I would struggle because I’m fairly certain I screwed up my metabolism with the band but so far so good :)
