GASTRIC BYPASS REVISE FROM GASTRIC SLEEVE



Recommended Posts

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'm hoping it will help relieve my reflux but at present I'm waiting for insurance to approve me.

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.
Good answer

And it will be a joy not to reflux, not to have that discomfort or the hiatal pain. And I am praying [emoji120]for a very smooth healing and an enhanced future for YOU!
Thank you so much, just waiting for insurance now.

Congratulations and hope you get the surgery date soon!!

My surgery was 3 weeks ago and I haven't had much problem at all few minor things with weakness and dizziness, one of my incision started opening up after staples were taking up causing slight infection. Nothing major like some people have been having.

Fixing to be on stage 3 menu thankfully. Lol can't wait to get to maintenance level.

I have lost 22lbs since surgery. But I had gained 5 from fluids in the hospital.

Good luck with your blood work,

I had gastric bypass and i no longer have acid reflux because they were able to repair hiatal hernia . They told me that they could no repair it if I had gastric sleeve. I am 5 years out and no reflux !!!

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.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
