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

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
