Yes, it's way different than the first surgery. Especially if you feel "forced" to do it because of e. g. reflux. The excitement of weight loss is completely missing when you're having surgery out of other reasons.

You just feel like like crap for a while and have to deal with the anxiety that the "new surgery" isn't as good as the one you had before. I'm still not convinced that the RNY is as good as the MGB when it comes to maintenance. So far I don't have any real reason to think so but there definitely is this nagging anxiety in some part of my brain I can't get rid of and that maybe will be present for some years. If it will ever go away, who knows.

I totally agree as I am having the same anxiety and I have stalled at the weight I was weighing in at last summer, which I am fine with but really ? I thought I would be able to get to 155-160 as an added buffer without starving myself ! I suppose we will see what happens over the next 6 weeks before I head back to the Dr. office.
