Not at all but I agree that it's hard to compare unless you have had both. However, I've been completely pleased with my MGB and surprised at how quickly I recovered.

Yes. I developed bile reflux, which is a known risk for MGB, so I wish I had RNY as my original surgery.

@MarinaGirl Did you get the anti-reflux stitch done to prevent the bile reflux? To my knowledge, only a few surgeons do it. I know that bile reflux is a known risk of MGB but the new stitch procedure is supposed to prevent that. This was one of my concerns when I had the surgery. I had the stitch done. I wasn't going to have the MGB without it. So far, it works but there's no guarantee it works long term.

I would love to know if you also had the stitch done and how long after your MGB did you develop the bile reflux?

Yes, my surgeon did the stitch that is supposed to minimize the risk of bile reflux after MGB.

I had bariatric surgery in April 2017 and started experiencing bile reflux in December 2017, which was confirmed with an EGD endoscopy.

@MarinaGirl That's a bummer. I hope your revision to full bypass helps you. Did you have the same surgeon do both or a different one and who did you use for the MGB?

I already have developed reflux in the past year. I am preop, actually thinking of August and Mexico. I have been researching surgery types and doctors. I have gained and lost so many times with the help of phentermine, and realized like most, that without it, I can not do it. I welcome any suggestions. My BMI initially suggests sleeve, but because of reflux, Dr suggested RNY. I thought I picked a DR, but am now questioning that decision. I guess I am where I started, just more knowledgeable. I welcome assistance!

Hi. You might get more replies if you started a new thread with your question. Are you chosing between MGB and bypass?

Briswife15,

I have been trying to decide yes. I would love the least invasive, but I think the reflux is going to prevent that. Now I also am reevaluating doctor, so that is a factor too.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
