I am a sleeve almost 6 years out and maintaining. Less invasive and less chance of dumping syndrome. No complications.

I had severe GERD. If you have any reflux the risk it will get worse with sleeve is very high. So RNY for me.

I had GERD before surgery, so it was a no-brainer: RNY. I've been very happy with my choice - no complications.

I needed to have a revision after my 11 year old lap band slipped. I thought I wanted a sleeve, but when the surgeon explained about the risk of GERD after a sleeve I went with the RNY, since I had GERD before I got my lap band.

The RNY isn't really any more invasive than the sleeve-actually is it theoretically reversible, unlike the sleeve where they remove 80% if your stomach. And the threat of dumping syndrome has aided me in not eating any sugary foods, which I consider to be a plus rather than a minus.

Everyone different. I was in good shape going into mine, walked and drank like I was supposed to and had very little pain at all, home the next day and no pain in a couple days once the gas pains went away. surgery was an hour and a half or so.

My surgeon recommends the sleeve to everyone under normal circumstances unless they have GERD. If I had GERD I would have gotten a bypass. No complications, very pleased.

In our province of Manitoba, the government offers the RNYGB as the gold standard of care, and the sleeve only if that isn’t an option. I ended up with the RNYGB and am a month out. As this procedure is covered by our provincial healthcare the assumption is that going into surgery one assumes that s/hé will wake up having had the RNYGB but it might have been a sleeve if the liver wasn’t shrunken enough or there was another issue.

Thank u . I was given the choice I guess because of possible scar tissues from previous c sections and a abdominal cyst removal as well just really scared of getting gerd and I like the option of reversible in bad circumstances.

I know this wasn't directed at me, but I don't think it's been answered yet . My RNY took a little over an hour (revisions generally take longer than that, though). I had an easy recovery and very little pain with it.

Sleeve. Didn't need to lose as much weight as some, no history of reflux. 7 mo out, no complications, ahead of schedule.

Yes. I have lost almost 90 lbs. and am still losing very slowly a year and a half out. The only thing, and I would hardly call it a complication, is mild constipation, so I eat 3 prunes every morning with Breakfast. It works. I'm thrilled with the whole experience.

I can't say LESS complications because I have only had the one procedure. I would have had either.
