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.

      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 🙄.
      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!)
