Had VSG 4 years ago. SW 285. Got down to 215 within 4 months and never lost another pound. My weight would go down 3 lbs and up 2, then stall and restart. My surgeon acted like I was crazy when I talked to him about why I couldn’t lose consistently. Started regain 7 months post-op and now I’m back up to 250. My hunger never left, I was hungry day after surgery. I vomit still when I eat dense or dry foods and therefore sometimes avoid Proteins for carbs to avoid discomfort and vomiting. Acid reflux is awful too. I wish I had bypass instead as I’m nauseous and uncomfortable every day either hungry, heartburn or uncomfortable. Thoughts?

Sorry to hear what you went through I had bypass as my first surgery and haven't had one issue obviously gotta eat slowly and small bites but now over 6 months out I'm feeling great and eating more... I've gone from 322 to 166lbs in 8 months 3 weeks since I began my own pre-op diet.

If you have any questions I'll try and help.
