Thank you! I didn't proof what I wrote. You are about the same size as me I'm 5"3 and currently weight around 137. It goes up or down a pound or two. I've actually shrank an inch since getting older. When I first started my journey I was 5'4" and weighed around 243.

You don't know how much better it makes me feel to hear that you're healing and doing well. I ihope that things continue that way.

Thanks! I'm in the 150s. I could easily go lower but i could easily stay here as well. Maintenance will be individualized but as long as you know how yourself and how to add carbs back in you'll be ok

Hey WLS Fam 😍

Updates:

Yesterday I was my 3 month post op Surgical/NUT visit. I actually had to delay it a little bit as I was still travelling unexpectedly 😌 (I was 3 months post RNY Conversion on 10/15)

On 9/6 I needed a dilatation and for a few weeks after it was hit or miss on if it had worked then all of a sudden I was perfectly fine 🙌💃🏆. I am thrilled.

Really patience is key. I know its super frustrating to read when youre in misery but sometimes time is what will do the trick. Not every fix is instant. So it appears I scar to an exaggerated level which is why I stricture and it takes time to show up and relax. I'm keeping an eye on this and will know what the symptoms are so if it happens again we'll take care of it quickly.

My surgeon is very very happy that during the endoscopy the sites looked healthy. He also very very happy that I have only lost about 5lbs. He didn't want me to lose anymore weight and was adamant that where i am at is where i belong. I agree because when i dropped to 146 ... Mercy ! The skin on my face and neck started to losen. Nope.

We also started to document the rashes under the folds of my skin 😉 and he RX powder for it. I suggest everyone get on top of this ASAP if you can...

Labs will be processed this week and I'll know what my latest numbers are soon.

All food restrictions have been lifted by my NUT. I still don't really eat bread except on very rare occasions. I never eat rice or Pasta (was over them since before surgery), I eat starchy vegetables, legumes and roots at my discretion but not in abundance.

But bihhh salads here I come

You are giving me hope! My revision is scheduled for 12/17 and it can't get here fast enough. I'm so glad that you are doing well.

No news is Good news : No major problems

currently: 146lbs BMI 25 overweight 😂

Labs returned with reports of same ol deficiencies I already experience (even prior to VSG) glad some things never change 😒. Taking extra supplements and will retest in a couple weeks.

No new/more issues with my surgery that I can speak of... everything feels like business as usual. GERD is a distant memory, the stricture seems resolves 🙌 happy, grateful, thankful.

I'm completely back to eating the way I want. Check out this thread to see what I realistically eat these days 💙

More updates soon!!! Feel free to ask questions 😍

How are you doing? Are you glad you had the revision done now? I just got back from the Dr. office and they want to revise me to RNY due to GERD and erosive esophagitis. I am having mixed emotions about this. The surgery is scheduled for Feb 26th.

My revision was on 12/17/19. I am doing awesome! I'm in the pureed stage, but I have not thrown up since the day before surgery. I had Gerd and throwing up so bad that I was aspirating food. I was malnourished and my voice stayed hoarse all the time. I'm definitely keeping what I eat down and my voice is even improving. I've been very pleased thus far. Hoping to start soft foods next week. The revision was the best thing that has happened to me in a long time!

Hi! Super glad I followed my surgeons advice and went through with it.

It was also medically necessary and although I had mixed emotions about it, after completing 2 endoscopies and providing me with the photos of my internal issues, it pretty much sealed the deal for me. I didn't want to continue to ignore it and struggle along for no reason.

Research and only do what is comfortable for you ❤

Quick update :

I am still doing well, very uneventful revision story now so not much to add. Weight fluctuates down then back up to baseline depending on my eating style. But no complaints at all

Hope that helps ❤

How much can you eat? Can you eat all foods you ate before the revision ?

I can eat around the same amount as VSG. You may or may not feel additional restriction because of the revision. (The pyloric valve will no longer be there so measuring and eating by recommended amounts may be needed. This is why some people, not everyone, feel like they can eat more after revision)

The process is slow going trying new foods after conversion but my eating is now nearly the same as with VSG

I dumped with VSG so I had to learn to be careful way back then I'm just even more careful now. If it even looks too sweet/rich i completely avoid it.

Hope that helps 💚

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
