No excited about revision



Recommended Posts

Well, Thursday is the big day. Thursday I go to my first appointment to see about how to get a sleeve revision to a RYN.

I don’t know why but I am really not excited about it. When I first considered getting the sleeve, I was really gong ho about surgery. I wasn’t worried at all. Just wanted the surgery to go smoothly and quickly.

Now that I am face with needed a RNY revision do to change complications associated with my sleeve, I am just stressed. And a little freaked out.

Anyone else feel like this?

Hey there!
Yes I felt the same way I am 3 months out from a revision do to complication of my vsg. I just focused on feeling better I had really bad Gerd and hital hernia had returned along with few other things. I felt very confused and didn't want anything to go wrong. And things went good. Try and stay positive it will be ok[emoji4] hope that helps please keep us posted

I felt the same way. It took me years to see a doctor about my sleeve to RNY revision. It is very scary!

but being anxious & scared is normal. But things got better when going through the program again and feeling confident with what my surgeon & team were saying. And honestly, being on this forum helped; to read about others revisions. Don’t give up and try to remain positive. If you have complications that can only be fixed with a revision, then it’ll all be worth it in the end. Hang in there!

The rny was really easy for me- what are you specifically nervous about and maybe folks can help ease your mind?

May I ask why you have to be revised from sleeve to RNY. I have the lapband and am getting bypass in September. Never lost significant weight with band.

I was just revised to bypass from band last week. I only ever lost about 35 lbs with the band but would have stuck food constantly which made me eat sliders. So far so good. I waited 10 yrs too long to make the change. Good luck!

Yes this is the reason the doc said RNY because I have some reflux from the band and he said reflux gets much worse with the sleeve

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.
