Revision from sleeve to Bypass Sept. 4th



Recommended Posts

As you slowly eat more than you're supposed to then your stomach will stretch. You know for every action there is a reaction. I suggest therapy to address any underlining issues. Also implement the pouch reset. Maybe dial it back a little on your workouts. I can't express how important it is for you to get ahead of this so you do not gain weight. You can do this! Keep me posted

Look on the websites of therapists in your area and often they will have listed their specialities and experiences. If you can't find someone who understands bariatrics look for someone with experience with food issues, disordered eating or whatever seems to reasonate with you. If you don't feel like it is helping don't be afraid to switch until you find someone who is really helping

Yes, that is a great idea. Now, how to find a therapist is big question. Do you know where I can start? Thank you!!!

I would contact your bariatric team and see if they have recommendations for local therapists that are familiar with disordered eating.

I would look up pouch reset. That's what the 1st surgeon suggested I do when I stalled or started to gain weight. Are you working out? When I worked out I was always starving.

That is a fad diet. It is a myth that you can “reset your pouch.” It was invented by someone selling products on the Internet and is not based on science. You need to go back to basics which are eat dense Protein first, followed by non-starchy vegetables, weigh and track your food, don’t drink alcohol or soda, cut out simple carbs & processed food, don’t drink during and after meals, limit snacking, and go to therapy if you’re struggling with emotional and/or binge eating.

As well, if you’re gaining or maintaining, instead of losing weight, you’re consuming too many calories. As you lose weight, your body requires less calories to subsist.

Thank you. This sounds like the correct way of eating. It is what my doctor recommended. I will definitely do this.

I am looking into a bariatric surgery group near me. Let's hope they can help get me back on track. Ultimately, it's up to me. It was just so easy at first I thought that's what I'd have forever...

Will my pouch (sleeve) ever be the smaller size it was when I had surgery? Or will I struggle with the compulsive eating? Being able to eat much more than the sleeve pouch should hold...

I would suggest some therapy with a therapist who has experience in disordered eating. YES, you can get back on track. Sometimes is triggering you to feel out of control around food. Address it NOW before it gets worse. Get back to basics ... you have the tool, now to adjust your mindsest back to where it was when you were on your game. You can do this.
Thank you. I believe you are correct. If I buckle down I can regain my composure over FOOD... It is not as important as I try to make it out to be. Because of your post I have gotten a food journal, logging everything. Stats, Protein, calories, exercise, water...so I am accountable now. But still feel the urge to benge. I don't feel so much the need to binge on the good food but more so feel I must over eat on the junk...I just can't have that food around me.

this implies it is more of a mindset. There are some good workbooks on this or social media private groups or therapist experienced with helping you work through these issues.

Many of us thought that honeymoon stage would last forever but even in the honeymoon stage we can struggle with the mindset and if we don't master it or find skills that work for us for our weak areas we will regain. I only know this from watching people years out who never met their goals or who met goal and regained some or all of their weight. It wasn't that the tool failed. (Do we blame the hammer if it misses the nail for example?) It is not too late to learn the skills you need. Only a swallow study test will show the condition of your tool but if you go back to the basics it will help you greatly both physically and emotionally, whether your tool is in the state it should be or could use a revision. FWIW though, they have done studies that prove scientifically that it is not the size of the sleeve or the pouch that determines weight loss success which I found pretty interesting

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      Has anyone reading this lied about your weight just to get the surgery done?

        The surgeons office will weigh you pre authorization for surgery. How do you lie?

      2. MargoCL

        How can you lie, like @skinnylife stated they weigh you at the surgeon's office and throughout each of your pre-op steps. There is no lying in this, everything is documented, double checked, etc.

      3. Coachthex32

        I had to gain 20 lbs. Makes no sense. High Blood Pressure, almost diabetic, and sleep issues (stop breathing in the night).

      4. Leia

        I dont think I could have if I wanted to, they'd been weighing me regularly for 6+ months before the surgery, and then again the day of.

       I don't know what to do for my birthday being that I just had weight loss surgery I know that I have a lot to be grateful for

        What would you normally do?

        Instead of planning a meal, what about an activity that you enjoy.

        If the weather is nice, plan a picnic and explain that you are not eating and will not be providing a cake instead if you wanted you could have birdseed bags that people could use to feed the birds or the ducks in a pond at the park where the picnic would be held. Everyone could bring their own lunch if they wanted to attend and you would only have to make little birdseed bags.

        If nature walks are more your style, do something along those lines and just let everyone know that for your birthday you are planning an activity and not a party. There will be no cake and ice cream if that is what they are looking for, they can just stay home.

        You could ask your friends to join you in a day of caring and you could all volunteer together somewhere either serving at a soup kitchen, helping at a shelter or a children's center or even a senior center.

      2. GreenTealael

        Of what indeed. I thought at first I should give up coffee, nonsense.h Then I thought I should go out for coffee with friends more. Then I thought I should go to Italy for coffee with friends and get a new maker...
