You will do great! I had my sleeve done in Dec 2011, and had lots of issues with regurgitation and GERD that finally became unmanageable. I just had my revision to RNY (along with a whole lot of hiatal hernia repair and other cleanup) on Dec 12, 2018. It seems so much easier this time around. I decided it's like childbirth - you're terrified through the first one, but when the second one comes along, it's like, I got this....

Wow. We have similar situations/histories. My sleeve was in 2015. My stomach is folded over, causing a stricture and I have a hiatal hernia. I'm not really nervous. I'm kind of excited, to be honest.

How long were you in the hospital? I'm glad to hear your recovery is easier this time around.
