I was sleeved in December of 2013. I lost a total of 50lbs before i ended up getting pregnant and regaining the weight. I currently am more than i weighed pre surgery and my doctors have recommended that i be revised to a bypass. I am a bit scared and want to know of anyone else’s experience with a sleeve to a bypass after a regain. Was your weight loss after your bypass successful? Do you have more issues now than before? Can you tolerate less foods? It will be very helpful in my decision making. Thank you all♥️

I can't help you with your questions, but I just wanted to let you know I'm on the same journey. I was sleeved in 2017, lost 100lbs and have since gained back more than half of that. After reading the forums and consulting with some surgeons, I'll be having a revision to bypass in early March. I'm hoping that that, plus following some version of a low-carb/keto/paleo type diet, that I'll be able to keep the weight permanently off.

If you do not have any complications such as GERD, consider asking about DS, SIPS or SADI compared to RNY.

Good Luck 💚

I haven't had a revision either, but a lot of people have - hopefully some will chime in!

Totally unrelated reason for my bypass 1 week+ after my sleeve, just wanted to wish you luck, it'll be so worth it, even though any surgery is scary and we have to weigh up the pros and cons of having it done.

I'm sure you will get some good info from those that have gone through it that'll hopefully ease any niggling doubts you have :)

Thank you all. I do have GERD but also suffer from other health issues. I have been back and forth on wanting it and no wanting it out of fear. I have started the process so many times hopefully this time i would get the information needed to keep me going with it.

Then just RNY as an option, Good Luck 💚

I would say some of my fears are from being sleeved. I cannot tolerate certain fruits AT ALL since my sleeve. My Vitamin levels are always low. And i guess you can say just a fear of having another major surgery and not knowing the outcome...

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
