Sleeve -> MGB revision and a couple questions



Recommended Posts

I had a revision from Sleeve to MGB this last Tuesday (Feb 5'19). I was well warned that the weight loss would be slower, due to the fact that this was a revision, so have been pleasantly surprised by having lost 8lbs in the last week. I am still on clear fluids, and I know that is likely having a huge impact on my expedient weight loss, but it's sure great motivation.

Did anyone lose well on Clear Liquids, and continue to lose as a decent rate (slower, of course, but at more than 2lbs per week) after a revision? If so, do you have any tips or secrets to share about how to keep the weight loss going. I know it's going to come off, and if it ends up being slow, then so be it. I was mentally prepared for that before surgery, but if I can help keep it going faster, that would be great! My pony would appreciate it I'm sure lol.

Also, I do not feel any restriction with my clear fluids. Is that normal? I have read a lot of people saying they don't feel restriction after a revision, and am concerned about that. Are clear liquids a different beast, so it is likely that will follow through into the different stages.

Thanks for reading, and for any input!

I'm 6 weeks out, and didn't feel any restriction with liquids. In fact, I still don't feel much (or at least not as much as with sleeve) now with real foods. But follow the rules and the weight will still come off. I've lost 23 lbs in 6 weeks.

I don't really feel any restriction unless I try and eat a whole chicken in under 30 seconds or sommit (exaggeration for effect, I've never actually tried to eat a whole chicken in one sitting). Basically, I have to weigh out my food and use that as my measure to stop otherwise I could keep going. Liquids = no restriction at all. However, I do get lovely satiety about twenty minutes after eating Protein, so I know now to be patient and live through the "I wanna eat more now" feeling before satiety hits.

Thanks for your input. I am really hoping to NOT be a person who has very little restriction.

Do you think you need a revision with a 17 pound gain?

I don't think I understand your question "why or When the sleeve no longer works?" Some people may need revisions for various reasons. This does not mean all surgeries will need them.

Really one question and then one statement..I'm feeling kinda down about the weight gain. Some say,oh it's because you're comfortable but know it's me just not taking accountability for stuffing bad things in my mouth

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
