Has anyone had an experience with going from Lapband to Gastric Sleeve revision, to RNY revision?

@Caela88

yes, i knew someone

she had the lapband for a few years - erosion, then sleeve - heartburn - revision to RNY

haven't seen her in quite awhile - hopefully all is well.

i don't know how often this happens, but for the above reasons it's sad, but understandable

is a 3rd revision in your future?

hope all goes well whatever you do☺️

good luck

I have had this! Lap band to sleeve to Mini Bypass.

Whats with all the judgement? Life happens.

No judgment sweetie. The OP asked if we had heard of the situation and I was like huh???? No, I haven't. It never occurred to me that some individuals would need a third revision. I'm just shocked that's all. Praying all will go well. [emoji1488][emoji1488][emoji1488]

Did you have the mini or the full bypass? How much have you lost?

I've heard of it though I'm not sure why surgeons would revise from band to sleeve (of course they have their reasons, just wondering what these reasons are).

Anyway I was a band to MGB and a band to sleeve wouldn't have been possible anyway because of so much scar tissue. I also had severe reflux so sleeve was out of the question anyway.

However, if one revises from band to sleeve I'm not surprised about the second revision because quite a few people get severe reflux after sleeve.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
