From Sleeve to Bypass Revision time



Recommended Posts

Well I had my sleeve done on 9/20/12; now I’m awaiting approval from United Healthcare Choice Plus for revision surgery. Why? Severe acid reflux which I never had prior to my sleeve. I’ve also gained back about 55 lbs. I know I just can’t continue waking up w acid coming from my nose any longer. Every day is the same. I try to stay away from trigger foods but that doesn’t stop the reflux issues as I can drink Water and have problems now. My hubby is more worried about the revision than I am at this point. I just want to be done w the reflux. I’m going for the cardio test while I await the 15-30 day approval process. I haven’t been on here in a long time...I’m back 😉. Now I’m just looking up videos and trying to soak up all the knowledge while I wait. Fingers crossed for a fast approval.

I forgot to ask but this is my first time having to undergo a cardio clearance. I’m told I just have to ride a bike for that clearance. Anyone who has been through this clearance... please share your experience. I don’t really know what to expect for it.

Well I just got done with the Frontera cardiac clearance. Now I wait the customary 2-3 days for the results. I admit I was nervous because I didn’t have this requirement 8 years ago. It took approximately 1.5 hours for the entire thing. Started with the Ultrasound EKG which included looking at the veins in both legs; this took an hour. They took a resting benchmark for the breathing exercises along with checking my blood pressure. Then I had to do these breathing exercises into a tube which recorded the results; I spent roughly 5 minutes on the exercise bike at 60rpm and then 90rpms (the bike was nothing to worry about at all). Ended w another check of my resting breathing after the bike. Just thought I would share the experience. The techs were very good at explaining everything.
