I had my surgery in 2011, I have regained 18 lbs, which don't seem like alot, but I feel every pound of it, I am currently on liquids doing a reset, as I figure, losing 15 lbs, will be easier than 40, If I don't take control now, I know it will continue to rise. Stay strong everyone, we can do this. I will get this extra weight off, it is not about the number, it is how we feel. Just came back to the board after being gone for so long and looking for the support I got when I first had my surgery. Stay focused everyone, we can do this.

It'll be 5 years in September 2021. Wow. For a long time I practically knew how many days it'd been since surgery, but tonight I had to actually stop and think about it, and check with my husband. I checked back in because I am having awful pain after eating and decided to look around and see if anyone has anything similar. I'm measuring, avoiding drinking around eating times, avoiding carbs but I either have unbelievable acid fumes spewing from me or just pain. ANYHOW... I gained about 10 pounds this year, thanks to a weird knee issue and my gym being closed due to Covid. And beer/wine. I am still eating at about the right amount, less lately due to the pain I have after eating. Honestly never had a vomiting problem until about 2 months ago, now I vomit maybe once or twice a week. Anyhow... mostly I am happy and good, although I'm about to go back on Protein Shakes for a week to see if I can shake a few pounds off and get some control over the pain issues. OH and I ordered a recumbent bike today...

Also just saw my profile. 183 was as low as I got... never could get below that.

2 months shy of 2 years. Happy with my weight loss but struggling with GERD and may need a revision. Currently undergoing testing.

How severe is your GERD and what is involved with a revision? I am having horrifying reflux almost every evening and throw up probably 3 days a week. I am over 4 years post surgery and didn't anticipate any of this happening!

It's similar for me. I've had a sore throat since December. I take two PPIs plus an H2 daily. Often take zofran due to the nausea and vomiting. I eat a very limited diet right now to try to keep it all in check. Endoscopy showed reflux and gastritis. My gastroenterologist sent me back to my bariatric surgeon. Saw my surgeon last week and he said the next step is upper GI xrays to make sure the endoscopy didn't miss anything. I have a lot of rashes from excess abdominal skin and was hoping I could starting looking into skin removal this year but I guess not now
