GASTRIC BYPASS REVISE FROM GASTRIC SLEEVE



Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me your experiences revising from the sleeve to the bypass? I'm hoping it will relieve my acid reflux, but I've heard it doesn't work.

from what I've heard/read (from hanging out on various bariatric boards for the last five or so years), it does help most people. Not all - but most.

I’m nearly 4 weeks out and it stopped my GERD.

I just had a bypass as a revision from a sleeve. It was done about 6 weeks ago, and the sleeve about 10 years ago.

I had terrible reflux basically since the sleeve was done, as well as a hiatus hernia.

I have had zero reflux since the bypass was done! It definitely worked for me.

I sure hope it helps! Scheduled for July 17 and I'm praying for some relief!
My surgeon's and gastrointestinal doctor said that it's absolutely going to work. I had no doubt about it until I saw this message.
My reflux is severe and I am having RNY revision surgery on July 16th.

I think I have a vague understanding of why it works from how my doctor explained it to me. The part of the digestive system that creates the reflux is disconnected from the oesophagus and delivers the bile further down the system, meaning it can’t get back up and cause damage.

Please excuse the probably very bad explanation, but that was my (non-medical) understanding of it.

I also have a hiatal hernia from the sleeve I'm waiting for my dr to get me approved so I'm just praying it's done soon the hernia is small but painful.

And it will be a joy not to reflux, not to have that discomfort or the hiatal pain. And I am praying 🙏for a very smooth healing and an enhanced future for YOU!

My severe reflux disease went from me taking 2 pills a day, to now almost 3yrs later taking a total of 10 pills a day, zofran for nausea and a GI cocktail 3 times a day after the sleeve surgery.
So am going to be having revision surgery from the sleeve to RNY to hopefully get rid of the reflux.
I had hernia repair when I had sleeve surgery and apparently it's reopened as well.

I hope that I am in the Most category, absolutely miserable with my reflux
