VSG to MGB Apr 11, 2018 with Dr Illan



Recommended Posts

I’m scheduled for my revision surgery with dr illan in Tijuana on Apr 11, 2018.

Any suggestions or revision experiences would be helpful please.

Did anyone use an Abdominal binder?

I made alot of mistakes the first go round with the sleeve, lessons learned. Grateful for a 2nd chance.

I’m not sure if their helpful or not. I’m hoping someone will respond if they use one. Their support to provide post surgery abdominal support.

How’s your post surgery coming along? How is the healing in comparison to the previous surgery? Weight loss or stalls? Any reflux. Hope all is well!

I am 31-wks post op, from VSG to MGB. Iam am down 60lbs. I do Keto and Paleo. I get food delivered to my home and prepare the meals. This helps alot to stay on track. I eat lots of salad! My dumping syndrome is maintained by limiting my sigar intake, I can tell when I start to OD on sugar. I can no longer eat flour tortillas, I cannot digest them as well as raw veggies. Broccoli is a horrible gas veggie for me and I cramp up. I cannot eat thick bread or pizza dough, even Bagels are difficult. I do eat a bite then I’m done.

Excercise, I run now 3-4 days a week. Ran a 5K. I excercise regularly, 1mi a day, stairmaster, rower, weights. I am still loosing but at a slower rate now. I also have extremely saggy skin. I cannot change it no matter how much I exercise. I notice that I have to reset my exercise or food diet to continually loose or I plateau out.

I’m sorry to hear about this dumping syndrome. The bariatric doctor that I did a consult with says that dumping syndrome does not happen with MGB’s. Or at least in very very rare cases. Do you feel that this is not accurate?

The intolerance to sugar and certain vegetables, what is this the same with your sleeve? Or did these elements just appear after the bypass?

What are some of the other differences you have noted between the sleeve and MGB?

Do you need to take any supplements? Do you have any acid reflux?

And you say you eat a lot of salads, but you can’t tolerate raw veggies. What kind of salads are you eating?

Not being able to eat healthy foods that I love will definitely be a factor I will consider if I am going to do this conversion.

With the sleeve I could tolerate every food over time and ultimately gained with MGB I cannot tolerate certain foods and have not gained. Tho with MGB I associate sugar with dumping so I don’t want to eat it. I love the MGB now and better than the sleeve. I had severe reflux with the sleeve but was gone with MGB. I still take an antacid for prevention and take lots of daily Vitamins. I continue to loose hair still and lost alot even with supplements

Raw broccoli or cauliflower I cannot eat. Skinless Cucumber I can and only shaved carrots. I eat alot of kale & quinoa salads. I eat tuna weekly & hard boiled eggs daily. Raw nuts are hard to digest too. I have to cut food & eat pieces smaller to help digest. I feel more hungry with MGB than the Sleeve. I feel less restricted with MGB but it works better for me overall tho.

I will be going for VSG to MGB on June 15 with dr illan. I'm glad to hear yours is going so well. I had really bad reflux before my VSG but immediately after, it went away, I suppose I was one of the lucky ones in that regard, I hope it does not return. I am curious about the salads...I have tried every kind of lettuce there is, even shredded, and every time it causes severe pain and I throw it right back up. Did you not have this issue with the VSG or is it something that you can now handle since the revision? I would LOVE to be able to eat salads again.

Went great. Had barely any gas to walk off, just minor abdominal pain and even that is now just a slight discomfort. Just hit full liquid stage so still curious to see what I can and can't tolerate. I do know the Mio Water flavorings I loved before are now very sweet.

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

        It is possible to objective as soon as i've? To indicate ways straightforward it will be for individuals to help make mistakes and earn typos. Advised programmers — further attentive developers. Specifically during signal evaluations as soon as they target these kinds of ill-fated 0, 1, 2. Administrators can also be capable of enjoy this factor involving motionless value analyzers of which help area this type of errors. It's not actually concerning advertising and marketing PVS-Studio (well, in some degree, it will be :).
