ISO success stories with Hashimoto's and Sleeve



Recommended Posts

Hi! I am just starting the decision process. Like many of you I have tried everything and I do mean everything to try and lose weight. I have had Hashimoto's hypothyroid for over 20 years. I have required frequent medication adjustments even with diet restrictions. I have consulted with 2 surgeons, one recommended bypass since my loss has been so stubborn but the other thought I could reach my goals with the sleeve (as I prefer) but may need to consider a thyroidectomy due to the difficulty I have had stabilizing my thyroid function. I am just looking for any success stories of patients that have had either procedure who have also had trouble with hypothyroid.

I have hypothyroid and have had sleeve surgery. Had to revise to bypass because of severe GERD.

I have had much more success with the bypass although I did lose weight with the sleeve. If I had it to do all over again, I would go straight for bypass. Mostly because of the high rate of gerd among people that are sleeved. I also believe that the bypass is just a much better surgery as far as losing weight. It has been for me.

Good question! I all so suffer from. Hashimotoes . for 20 plus years. Its been a battle with weightloss all so..
I decided to have the sleeve done. May 26.. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will help with weightloss. I'm sure it will. Taking our medication is vital to our life and our recovery.. Ps. I would not recommend a thyroidectomy ...leads to more issues..
