I Had Gastric bypass in 2004 and on Nov 29 2018 I had a revision I gained 100pnds back!!! The recovery was alittle longer than my first Gastric bypass and also the weightloss is slower I Don’t regret it I would do it again

I had gb in 2011. Weight loss was not as successful as it should have been. I only lost like 75 lbs, came to a plateau for about 6 months and then I started gainin it back. Now here it is 2019 abd Im only 7 lbs down from where I started when I had my surgery.

Thought about seeing if could have a revision done but I had a rough surgery due to being allergic to steri-strips its was hard for my incisions to heal. They broke out real bad and looked bad, when I was finally able to get those iff then I started healing. This is what has stopped me frim getting a revision done.

I didnt have a very supportive doctor through this. Had it done in Arizona but I now live in Missouri. So finding a doctor that will do a revision since a diff doctor originally done it. Thought about going to see Dr Nowzarden in Texas to see what he can do to help me.

SO worth the drive. Google Mercy bariatrics springfield mo and you can take the seminar online to start the process then they will send you a packet through the mail to fill out. Once they receive your completed packet it takes about 4 weeks for them to review it and get back to you with your first appt. Things move really quick then. They received my completed packet Dec 18th. They called me Jan 15th and set me up with an appt to see my surgeon the next day. While I was seeing my surgeon they called to set me up to schedule my psych eval for the next day. Now all I have left is a dietician and exercise therapist consult then we submit to insurance. Looking at a late March or early April surgery. So from start to surgery will end up being 3-3 1/2 mos

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
