Nervous! Sleeve to RNY revision tomorrow 😳



Recommended Posts

It was 5 years ago today 7/22 that I was sleeved. Like many others- GERD, hiatal hernia & a 30lb regain has me going back for a second chance. I gotta admit, rearranging my guys has me a little nervous. Not sure what to expect as far as recovery the first couple day or how long they will end up keeping me in the hospital. For those who have gone through the same thing- Is it similar to sleeve? Any advice & words of wisdom are greatly appreciated!

Hi

I was just revised a week ago and i have the same amount of lapro port sites, and hospital stay was the same length. But obviously the specifics of the two surgeries are very different, even more so because your anatomy is already altered.

Recovery, for me, has been much smoother so far because i had realistic expectations about pain management and took care of that immediately.

I would say it seems be similar to the intial surgery for recovery, But GERD appears to be gone so far.

However IDK about weightloss aspect unfortunately

Good Luck 💜

Hi Everyone,

I just had revision surgery on Thursday, July 25th for the same symptoms, GERD, hiatal hernia. Stayed in the hospital 2 nights and my biggest discomfort was the soreness in my throat from the throat tube during surgery. OMG i couldn't talk or swallow, so drinking Water or Soup broth was very painful. It's been 2 days and the pain has subsided significantly, so i'm finally getting my fluids in. I feel blessed and can't wait to see the results of the weight loss.

Good luck and God bless you during this part of your journey.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
