I haven't had that and haven't read about many people who have, but it gets sort of mixed reviews. Hope it works for you. Keep us posted - I'm interested in hearing your results.

I have an ESG (not as a revision) and am very happy with the result. This is a copy and paste from my doctor's ESG FAQ https://bmiclinic.com.au/endoscopic-sleeve-gastroplasty-faq/

  • ESG following gastric balloon: Recent research has revealed that people who’ve had a gastric balloon do less well following ESG in terms of weight loss. For this reason, we do not recommend ESG to anyone who’s has previously had a gastric balloon.
  • ESG following gastric sleeve: Endoscopic revision of a gastric sleeve is possible, however the weight loss that results is only approximately 10% of the baseline weight. There are likely more effective options which you can talk through with your Bariatric Specialist.
  • ESG following gastric bypass: Endoscopic suturing is possible via a procedure called TORe, Transoral Outlet Revision.

I was just looking into this a few days back. I'm 6 years out and 40 pounds of gain that's not really that bad but not really too happy with it. The out of pocket cost here is 6,500$ for it in and out the same day.

Yeah I just paid $900 to the doctor and 650 to the hospital although my copay is supposed to be 150. I am sure I'll get an anesthesia bill too. Yeah in and out same day. I had my gastric bypass in 2000 regained 100 lbs.

Don't waste your time nor money. I was basically on liquids a month and paid 11k for nothing. It never made me feel satisfied nor restricted I doubt it held but without getting an EGD again don't know. Very disappointing please look for something else. Sorry

How fast things change.....I was definitely in denial when I wrote this post, I thought surely ESG failure wouldn't happen to me. I had a surgical sleeve mid March after finding out most of my suture had come undone.
