I'm wanting to get a revision to the sleeve I had in 2015 I've gained roughly 70lb and I feel like I or the sleeve failed me. So I want the bypass now. Any input on this

I had the gastric bypass. Its been 12 years. I gained a few pounds not much, I'm still in my ideal weight range. So I think the bypass is great. I got the bypass instead of the sleeve because I wanted quick results. I don't know if this is a good reason to get it done but it worked for me. My son just got the balloon done and he loves it. Although I had the bypass I would get the sleeve or the balloon and lose it slowly. Mentally, its very hard to lose all that weight in such a short period. I lost 140 pounds in under a year. It took a lot to getting used to...to tell you the truth I still struggle and its been 12 years.

it may be hard for some, but it's not for everyone. It wasn't hard on me at all. I wonder if your program just didn't offer the support that some do - or maybe it's because you had your surgery several years ago before they realized that people need support??

I had a gastric bypass in November 2016, lost 70pounds and kept it for about 2.5 years until I fell and broke the hip. Since than I gained about 25 pounds. Now I am trying to loose weight, but nothing happens. Any suggestion.

go back to weighing/measuring and tracking your food, if you haven't already. I've found that if I don't, i start underestimating my calorie intake after awhile. Also, try to go back to the way you were eating the first year - Protein first, then non-starchy vegetables. Then, if you have room, a small serving of fruit or whole-grain carb. I'm doing all that now because I want to lose 8-10 lbs. It'll be slow, but it should work...

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.
