Gastric sleeve revision surgery to Gastric bypass



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I am curious to know if anyone has had a revision from gastric sleeve to the gastric bypass in Mexico? If yes, who did your surgery and would you recommend them to others? Thanks..

I just had a revision from mgb to full bypass on Monday Feb 3rd. I just flew home last night. I went to Dr. Illan and he and his staff are amazing. They are very good about answering all your questions and catering to your companion if you bring one. All my husbands meals were brought right to my room. The hospital is sparkling clean and very modern. You can check it out on Facebook at Hospital BC. There are videos of the hospital and testimonials from patients. Dr. Illan and his staff are the best!

Hi bikerchick519,

Thank you for the reply. What made you decide to go from a mgb to a full gastric bypass?

If you don't mind me asking, why did you have the revision from MGB to full GB? Did you have complications? Also how has your recovery been going? Any side effects or complications? Are you happy with Dr. Illians work? I hope your doing fantastic and already seeing fantastic results. [emoji847]

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
