Revision from sleeve to bypass



Recommended Posts

Yes- i did! I had my revision friday and i feel freaking amazing!!! I’m wishing you all the best of luck.

I was in the same boat as you in the sense that i workout hard core religiously 5 days per week and i’m like the poster child in my local area for how to eat post op, but even i had severe reflux. **** happens. It got to the point where i honestly didn’t even care if i drank sparkling Water because i ended up with reflux anyway by avoiding that.

So i did not have bypass, i had the one anastomosis bypass which is different. It’s rare and i’m actually literally the first person in my state to even have that done. So we’ll see how it compares, but so far i can say that it is definitely very very different from my sleeve.

You will be so much happier once the reflux goes away. All the best to you.
Well awesome! I want to keep up with your progress. Let me know how it goes. Good luck to you![emoji4]

They have to do a colonoscopy? Oh man, good luck with that. I just did an endoscopy and he could see that my sleeve was to narrow that way.
I doubt mine is too narrow I can eat everything. Last night I thought I was going to choke to death from the acid.

      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.

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!
