@jennigurl23 it depends on a few things, your BMI how much weight you need to lose? But most will tell you the RNY is more effective, more restrictive, it changes your metabolism and your internal gastric system...

Most studies will show RNY better overall loss and better management of type 2diabetes... But you will need to be on more Vitamins than sleeve.. but it also helps with reflux or gerd...

Surgery was February 4th, 2019 and I’ve lost 62 lbs in all. I had to do the liver shrinking diet and lost 12 lbs in 2 weeks prior... starting weight before liver shrinking diet was 240 at 5 , 4” had RNY because of hernia and awful acid reflux.. been to counseling and following plan like a trooper , just worried that I am able to fill up that little pouch.. doesn’t mean I will, I just feel no discomfort and was expecting more..nice to feel so good though, and I am determined to make this work.. reminding myself the surgery was a TOOL.. a tool I must use... no miracle , well, maybe I can make my own miracle... NO!!! I WILL make my own miracle... this is an excellent place for support .

You're doing great. I am almost 64 and need RNY REVISION SURGERY after my sleeve surgery 2.5 years ago.

HW 318
SW 287
CW 225
I have gone down to 199.8 and then started gaining weight again.
I never had a problem eating even a whole sandwich.
I drink constantly and now crave things I never ate before.
Chips, icecream and just junk.
Grrrr, salt intake is way too high seems like I can't get enough.
My reflux has become so much worse than it was before I started.
It's crazy.
Now waiting approval for the RNY revision surgery from my 2 insurance companies.
I am absolutely miserable and can't wait for the approval and surgery date.
I'm concerned about the surgery but I know I have to have it.
Good luck

I also had a hernia repair when I had my sleeve surgery and it was back almost immediately.
Waiting for approval from my insurance companies for the RNY revision surgery.
My reflux is awful.

Hi. We are surgery twins! I’m down about 22 lbs since surgery. Looks like we’re losing at the same rate too.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
