The wait can seem like an eternity, that's for sure. Congratulations on getting a date. That kind of makes it seem more realistic.

Hi, there. I'm brand new on this site and am scheduled for RNY sometime in February, but I don't have an exact date yet. I see my surgeon again on January 8 and should get a surgery date then.

That sounds great. I had my final decision appointment with my surgeon today. Just went through what to expect and why I wanted bypass over sleeve. Then the scheduler came in and we scheduled the nutritionist appointment and physician assistant appointment February 4th. There I will get final check up and my two week diet for prior to surgery.

My surgeon seemed to be trying to talk me into the sleeve instead of bypass, and asked me to defend my decision to do bypass. I told her that the long-term weight loss seemed better with bypass, and she said she was more concerned with health than weight loss. (Easy for her to say--she is stick-thin.) I then said I felt that bypass had been around longer and was better understood, and that I was also concerned about GERD with sleeve. She seemed satisfied. 🙂

I will see the nutritionist, psychologist and do a pre-op support group on January 8; then I'll get my surgery date.

I have noticed the many people that get the sleeve eventually end up having the bypass at a later time.

I also notice many people who get wls fail period. Old habits die hard sadly. Of course it's never too late unless you're dead!

Weight regain can happen with any type of surgery. Behavior change and the choices you make will be a factor in your outcome. There are many sleevers that have kept the weight off long term.

It is going to be great. I know this journey has been over six months. I know when I get to my pre op diet, I will be saying I wish it was not quite here yet. Just kidding. Iy will be great because I will get to my surgery and by summer I will have started to look like the stud I know I am. 😂

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
