I have never heard of a mini bypass. What do you mean by your sleeve stopped working? When did you get it? Are you following a diet and exercise regimen? Are you drinking your Water?

I'm curious as well if anyone had mini bypass
Me. I had mine in Belgium with Dr Chris DeBruyne. I'm delighted with the results. I don't have any reflux problems although b/c mine was a revision from a lapband, my pouch is slightly larger than most due to scar tissue. But I'm losing more than a kilo a week, and my diabetes is in full remission.

I had my MGB revision on Oct 16, so nearly 4 months ago. I've lost 20.2 kgs after surgery (not incl pre-op loss). That's about five kilos a month which I'm delighted with. I'm not a quick loser but slow and steady wins the race, so to speak.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)
