Hope for all you revisionists!



Recommended Posts

I'm sure you all have heard that when you get a revision that you will have more difficulty losing weight than with the first procedure. I'm here to give you hope!

I had an eleven year old lap band slip, so I had it removed and had a RNY done. Today is my three month post-op anniversary, and I am down 40 pounds. More importantly I am only one pound heavier than the lowest weight I ever achieved after my lap band!

So trust the process, hang in there and hopefully you will also show the naysayers that it is possible to get good results even after a revision. Please add your stories here to help encourage the people who need a revision and think it'll be a waste...thanks!

Thanks for the update on revision. I also had a lapband that slipped after 11 years and will be having gastric bypass on March 26 after having my lapband removed last November. Looking forward to restarting my weight loss journey again.

I had a revision last January. My weight now is lower than my lowest weight with my band and I achieved it fairly quickly. I started from a lower weight so yes I want losing a huge amount per month but I still got to my goal and beyond pretty quickly

I am barely 3 months out from revision. Sleeve to rny. 38 pounds down last time I weighed.
I still have 20-30 to go in order to reach goal but I am feeling great!
My revision was due to hernia and gerd but I was hopeful that I would also lose more weight.

That seems unusual. Especially for ds surgery. Have you talked to your dr about it? What do they say?

I haven’t talked to them since my 8 week follow up. I’ll have to make an appt. But from that visit he did say it would be real slow. So I just assumed it was normal
