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

kathy

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.

I assume they mean recovery is not easy and post op still takes hard work

I sure hope I won't. I have never had an issue with reflux and I certainly don't want to now.

I’m looking into the same thing as the OP. Band in 2010, revision to Sleeve in 2014 due to band slip resulting in the inability to even drink Water, and now looking for another option due to acid reflux and regain after a hysterectomy in 2016. I never felt restriction with the sleeve and didn’t lose much after the sleeve and now am half way back to where I started on my WL journey. I’m going to call my WL surgeon to make an appointment to see what my options are at this point and to see what is needed for insurance to pay. If anyone else with a similar experience has any words of wisdom to share that would be greatly appreciated.

      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
