Appeal overturned. Revision time



Recommended Posts

Hi
So my appeal was overturned. Yay!

What can I expect for revision? 

Post op diet the same. 

Will I ever eat again. Lots of dumping syndrome?

Supposedly only 30% of RNY patients dump. And for those who do, it can be controlled by avoiding or limiting sugar intake. I've never dumped - and I don't know very many people who do.

Thanks everyone. I don’t remember even asking about dumping lmaooooo I was half asleep I guess lol

Dumping is vomitting or the other day around.

and why does it happen anyways?
I know what Bypass is and how does that change the way I’ll eat.

I better do some research.

That word seems to get thrown around a lot, but true dumping is when too much sugar hits your small intestine at one time and your body goes into overdrive to deal with it. People sweat, get diarrhea, get the shakes, get dizzy, have a rapid heartbeat. Some people do vomit or feel nauseated. Evidently it can last for awhile.

It happens to about 30% of RNY patients (I've never had it, thankfully) - but it can be controlled to a large extend by avoiding or severely limiting sugar.

Oh Wow.
I’ve had “slider” Issues with the sleeve.
that was due to a few bad choices. My own fault 🙂

I always saw a bypass as never eating again. LOL! I recall many many years ago people having it and never eating a meal again that wasn’t liquid. Guess not.

i has a friend who revised due to her stomach flipping ... she won’t admit the revision but her son slipped up and told us. She doesn’t want people to know as she didn’t or hasn’t lost anymore weight from her original sleeve. Unsure what she’s hiding.

did you lose any weight w the revision? As long as I get rid of the heartburn and feel good everyday. I can’t take it.

This liquid diet today isn’t fun so I hope it’s worth it.

oh we can eat - unfortunately!!

Mine wasn't a revision - it was an original surgery. I had it because I had GERD prior to surgery - RNY usually improves if not outright cures GERD (did mine!).

I lost over 200 lbs - but again, it wasn't a revision.

original surgery means it's the only weight loss surgery I've had. A revision surgery means you've already had a weight loss surgery before getting this one.

mine was laproscopic. I think endo is a new technique (they didn't do that when I had my surgery five years ago).

Yup... just curious if it's done the same way - I mean, I have a hernia being repaired too, umbilical, so maybe they'll do lapo instead of endo.. I will have to ask, regardless, they overturned it, Thank God, with no help from my surgeon's office.. I had to send in EOB from my last surgery, which was hard to get, they purge systems, etc. My clinical were never sent in with the revision request -- had to get 2014 medical records. I did it all myself and faxed things in ... coordinator was on vacation, he'll see when he gets back that I did it all :) we are moving forward!

Maybe theyll do endo. hope so!

      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.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
